CompTIA Project+

CompTIA Project+ is ideal for IT professionals who need to manage smaller, less complex projects as part of their other job duties but still have foundational project management skills. Project+ is more versatile than other certifications because it covers essential project management concepts beyond the scope of just one methodology or framework.

  • Manage the project life cycle

  • Maintain project documentation
  • CompTIA Project+ is designed for business professionals who coordinate or manage small-to-medium-size projects, inside and outside of IT. It is recommended that you have at least 12 months of cumulative project management experience or equivalent education.
