Aviation Authority employees earn PMP certification

Six Charleston County Aviation Authority employees recently earned the Project Management Professional (PMP) designation from the Project Management Institute.

In February, the Aviation Authority, which owns and operates Charleston International Airport, hosted a week-long PMP boot camp. Afterward participants took a four-hour exam to earn the PMP certification.
