Are you looking for a credential to boost your career or from a personal interest perspective? If the former, I'd suggest networking with others in more senior roles in your industry and region to find what types of credentials helped them get where they are.
I've never seen any of PMI's specialized credentials (RMP, SP) or higher-level ones (PgMP, PfMP) referenced in job postings in North America, but things might be different in the Middle East.
What would benefit your organization? Talk to your bosses about what are important to them. If they struggle with the level of risks in the construction industry, then go for your RMP. If they don't have a good handle on their schedule management, then go for SP. (I suspect risks are more important than scheduling.)
It depends on several factors, e.g. job market, your career plan, etc.
I would say you better search the target market (local job market) and review the job posting requirements.
PMI are soon coming up with a credential specific for construction professional. It is called Construction Professional in Built Environment Projects (CPBEP). Highly recommended. Here is the link from PMI website:
Hope this helps.
Either me never seen any such ask for higher certifications in middle east.
First of all, a big congratulations to you for attaining one of the renowned certification. You should give yourself a pat on your back :)
From my personal experience and coming from similar industry, my suggestion would be to first implement your learnings from PMP and apply on your day to day role.
There are many things using which you can certainly bring a difference in your work.
2nd suggestion would be to join a local chapter as a Volunteer and start networking with other industry colleagues and senior professionals. Seek their advice in person as to how they have implemented PMP learning in real life projects.
3rd would be to still keep on referring the PMBoK to keep your learnings fresh as always and dont keep the book aside :)
Wish you all the best for your future and welcome to the community
