Since you already have joined the IT industry with sufficient experience and certification, your project manager's dream isn't too far!
All you need to gain is sufficient industry experience and then take up certification. The certification courses in project management can be earned within a few months by gaining education from several hours of class and by gaining specified hours of experience in the relevant field.
Project management institution(PMI) sponsors certifications such as Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM), and the Project Management Professional (PMP) certification. These differ from each other by the experience criteria.
CAPM- this course can be earned by completing 1,500 hours of work experience or 23 hours of education. It is also possible to earn certification without gaining experience.
PMP- you are required to complete at least 4,500 hours of experience (2.5 years) or 35 hours of education. To take up this certification, you are required to earn a bachelor's degree
I would suggest you go for the PMP Certification. It is a globally acknowledged professional certification program in project management, that legalizes a professional’s education, experience, skill, and competency that is required to lead and direct projects.
