New CompTIA Project+ certification exam validates a range of high-demand project management skills
Covers multiple project management methodologies and frameworks
DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., Nov. 8, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- High-demand project management skills sought by employers are emphasized in the latest CompTIA Project+ certification exam released today by CompTIA, the nonprofit association for the information technology (IT) industry and workforce.

"Awareness and management of risk have been elevated as an organizational priority as industries become more regulated," said Thomas Reilly, chief product officer, CompTIA. "This heightened attention has filtered down to the individual project level, making it incumbent on project managers to understand risk factors and mitigate them."
Similarly, today's project managers must be able to work effectively with different management methodologies, such as Agile and Waterfall, depending on which is better suited for a particular project One-third of the content on the new CompTIA Project+ exam focuses on project management concepts and methodologies.
