What is life without thrills?
Cool list !, I've never seen this all in one place, good visual.
Would be interested if it could somehow be ranked by popularity.
It’s obscure and new but I’d add on ACRP-PM

It’s a clinical research project management subspecialty certification. Helpful if you’re in pharma. I’m sitting for it next month

And I often feel like I have alphabet soup after my name
Unless my eyes deceive me I do not see Project+ on the list.

Thank you for the list. There are a lot.

I believe to have a PMI-PMP is good enough. You have just have to continue learning hence get those PDUs.
Time to update the list again... A few more adds and a subtract or two, but generally more growth. I'll try to get it done tonight.
