Project Management
Even though I am a big fan of the Project Management Institute and its certifications, especially the PMP, I am aware that the PMBOK and some of the study material can be rather dry, particularly since there are not many real examples. And that is because the project management methodology can be applied to any project, such as building a high rise, developing a vaccine, or creating any product for mass manufacturing. Therefore, the material is presented in a general and abstract manner to make it universally applicable. That said, the exam prep courses can present the material in a more interesting and applicable manner. Free Project Management Certification Practice Test PMP Certification Exam Prep Course At PM Workshops, for example, we typically customize our courses so that the participants…

Project Management
As a PMP-certified individual myself, I am a staunch advocate for obtaining this professional authentication. And not just because of the course work you have to learn, the terminology, or the capabilities building process you have to go through but rather because it creates a platform from which to work with other professionals. After so many years of working in civil engineering, I was always so surprised to meet staff members from various industries with a project manager's designation. Yet, they had never prepared a budget or a schedule or even the scope, which is crucial for any project.

Becoming a Project Management Professional and PMP Exam Prep Certification

Project Management
Project Management Professional Becoming a Project Management Professional and PMP Certification According to the Project Management Insitute (www.pmi.org), there are more than one million certified Project Management Professionals (PMPs) worldwide. Their most current salary survey has revealed that the median salary for PMP certificate holders is 25% higher than for project managers without certification. This fact alone should be enough to motivate most people to become certified PMP. However, there are also other great advantages to becoming a PMP, such as: Membership into a professional community that provides support for one another: You can, for example, join a local PMI chapter. Recognition from employers and supervisors that you have the on-hand experience, training, and knowledge to be an effective project manager Speak the right language worldwide that enables you to…

Project Management Training for PMP Certification Exam Prep

Project Management Training for PMP Certification Exam Prep

Project Management
Per PMI’s prerequisites for taking the exam, you need to have a minimum of 35 contact hours of project management education/training. How you get those hours is mostly up to you, as long as you get a solid understanding of project management practices and terminology. In my case, for example, I was enrolled in the Construction Management program at UC Berkeley. Therefore, many of the material covered in the program satisfied the PMI requirement; and there are other options. That said, my recommendation to all PMP candidates is to obtain the training required and make sure you also learn important project management skills. In other words, make sure those 35 hours count for more than just trying to pass an exam. Project Management Training for PMP Certification At PM Workshops,…

More Women Need to Obtain PMP Certification

More Women Need to Obtain PMP Certification

Project Management
It will come as no surprise to learn that not only are there more men than women who have PMP Certification, but what is astounding is that in the last 10+ years, the numbers have not changed significantly. In general, male project managers, including those that are PMP certified, outnumber women by a ratio of more than 2 to 1. Recent figures show that 68% of PMPs are men, and 32% are women. Also, as we all know from PMI’s salary surveys, PMP holders earn an average of 20% more than non-PMP certified managers, which means that the lack of female PMPs impacts gender economic inequality. Though I am a man, my daughter is still under the age of 10, and, therefore, I always feel compelled to advocate for her…

FAQs
How much time should I spend studying for the exam? Which books should I read in order to prepare for the exam? Do I need to memorize all the ITTOs? If these questions sound familiar it is because everyone has the same concerns regarding taking the exam. Also, there are tons of blogs and online social media groups discussing all the possible configurations for studying for the exam. However, there is such a thing as overkill when it comes to preparing for the exam. My advice, after running countless PMP Exam workshops, is to follow these steps in this order: Schedule the exam preparation process, which includes the following: Preliminary studying. See item 2 below. Dates for the PMP exam preparation workshop. Post-workshop studying timeframe. Usually, no more than 1…
