It's been a few months since I reported on PMI numbers. But, when I got my copy of PMI Today, I couldn't help but post about it. Though PMI only added 5,956 new members in the month of July, it added 13,869 PMP to the ranks. I've seen the credential outpace actual membership before but not by such a wide margin.
July 2011 Totals: Active PMPs: 451,868 PMI Members: 362,726 CAPM: 15,129 PMI-RMP: 599 PgMP: 943 PMI-SP: 494
One statistic is yet to come. The PMI-ACP, which hasn't even been launched yet, will start out with 2,649 paid applicants.
