What is the difference between the IT CPM and CPM Certification?
During the certification boot camp, you may choose between IT CPM (Information Technology Certified Project Manager) and CPM (Certified Project Manager) designations. At a set time in the program there will be two tracks – one for the students seeking their IT CPM designation and one for the students seeking their CPM designation. Once those tracks are completed, the students will continue the program together.

How does the PMLG certification (IT-CPM and CPM) compare to the PMP®?
The PMLG IT CPM and CPM credentials are different than the PMP® credential in that the CPM demonstrates that the individual is certified in the application of both project management and leadership skills. It is a performance-based certification whereas the PMP® is examination based. The certification provides the practical “how” of implementing project management methodology. The PMP® credential through the Project Management Institute demonstrates that the certification holder is knowledgeable with the accepted concepts presented within the Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge, published by PMI. The individual who holds both certifications demonstrates that he or she not only understands the “what” of project management, but that he or she has demonstrated the skill, confidence and discipline to successfully apply outstanding project management and leadership processes, tools and techniques.
