Project Management Certification

I have been doing Project Management for a long time, but never got around to getting certified.


In my previous role as a Product Development Manager for example, I sccessfuly managed multiple projects concurrently (as many as 7 at a time) some with short scope, while others were multi team member projects spanning multiple years.

That experience gave me alll the work experience that the PMI requires, and I already have completed all the educational PDU requirements, from training I have attended plus courses in Management that I completed as part of my Master’s Degree in Public Administration.

I have now gotten motivated to get Certified.  I hae re-joined the PMI (Project Management Institute), and am in the process of preparing to take the official exam to be certified as a PMP (Project Management Professional).

Wish me luck, as the 4 hour sit down exam will be rough (and lots of people fail it), but I am well on my way to completing it.
