An industry certification involves education, work experience, an application process and a certification exam. The certification is granted by a professional body, such as IIBA or PMI. The Sheridan certificate is based on education only and is granted by Sheridan upon successful completion of the program requirements.

PMI’s professional resources and research empower more than 700,000 members, credential holders and volunteers in nearly every country in the world to enhance their careers, improve their organizations’ success and further enhance the profession ( ).
