Project Manager Cert?

Just wondering if anyone has one, and if it's worth the investment? The college near me has a night course but it cost over $3k. I worked as a PM in construction for over 3 yrs but never came across anyone that has one or the need for one. But when applying to jobs, I see a lot of jobs that look for it as a skill.

Currently in the program for it through PMI, never heard of it either until I got out of the military while looking at options for my VA benefits. It's suppose to be a pretty good asset to have on your resume from what I hear. I'll let you know how "vaulable" it is after I pass the exam and start looking lol

Yeah I see it more and more. But I have never come across anyone that had one. I knew PM's that have been doing it for over 30 yrs and didn't even have a formal education, but still made really good money. $3k for a certification is just about the cost of a semester of grad school. More and more I feel a lot of companies have 0 interest in training ppl and they just want a carbon copy of the former worker.
