Apologies in advance if this is in the wrong forum. Maybe it should be in the Sales Pitch section.
As we PMP aspirants approach our exam date fully confident we will pass Above Target on the first try, we may be wondering what comes next.
Clearly, studying should precede the exam, and we should ‘strike while the iron is hot’ and all this knowledge is still freshly frescoed upon or frontal cortex.
What other PMI certifications would compliment the recently certified project management professional? What certifications are not helpful or are overshadowed/moot by the knowledge recently acquired through PMP study?
Is the ACP or Schedule Management Professional cert going to cover material more in depth than the PMP exam?

We worked hard for this knowledge, what else can we do with this investment of time and energy to maximize the ROI?
Assume your customer isn’t constrained by cost or schedule.

Hello Ryan,

I would recommend reviewing the various paths provided within the 'Compare PMI Certifications' section of the 'Certification Overview' within the PMI website. Based on years of experience and desired goals, there are a number of options available to a Project Manager. It really depends on you. Additionally, earning additional certifications associated with various aspects of project management demonstrates to your employer, in my opinion, your willingness to expand your capabilities and possible willingness to accept greater responsibilities. This in itself is a great way to bolster one's career. Thank you. I wish you all the best in your future endeavors.
