I am working in corporate construction projects for last 13 years. It's time to renew my PMP credential. It is the best thing i did almost a decade ago. In last renewal cycle i learnt about MSP and eventually received managing successful programs practitioner credential. Again, it was a great learning experience and just like PMP, MSP contributed a lot towards what i can understand and do.

This time, apart from all the other things, i want to get some useful certification which will add to both my knowledge and PDUs. What are your recommendations? What next?

It depends (there's that word again) on your current job, and where you want to be in the future? If you remain in construction, would a six sigma certification help you?

RMP would definitely be a very useful certification. My expertise is in construction too and construction projects require lots of risk management skills.

Good recommendation, Rami. I thought the same, but also like Sante state, 'it depends' :)

How about looking into Green Project Manager certification? https://greenprojectmanagement.org/certification

Rami, you may also be interested in this!

Gaurav -

Not to marginalize the RMP (as I have it) but you might consider a sustainability/green-focused certification such as https://greenprojectmanagement.org/certification given its growing importance in construction.

You might also consider whether an agile certification such as PMI's PMI-ACP which does not focus purely on technology projects would be a good differentiator.

Rami,

At first, I had thought it was primarily Construction based, but upon further reading, I see it is also Business related. The GPM certainly looks very interesting. I am not sure what my decision will ultimately be, but I am considering.

If you continue to move forward with it, I'd like to hear more about your experience, etc.

It all depend on your personal interest
Green project and RMP would make a nice addition in construction
Agile in construction still need more visibility in my opinion
IPMA Level B, not one I know
