The Project Management Professional Certification
There are several tangible and intangible benefits I’ve realized since earning the Project Management Professional Certification (PMP).
As I contemplated what I needed to do to position myself to leave a twenty-year Air Force career back in 2010, I looked at my professional credentials and experience. I was already a registered engineer, having earned my license early on in my career. Since that time I’d earned a master’s degree, held numerous positions of increasing responsibility, and attended several professional military courses. Despite the education and experience I’d gained, I wasn’t convinced that I had a compelling way of tying it all together for the pending job search. Sure, I could put it all in a good package and give a 3-minute pitch about my skills. But I lacked a recognizable standard against which any prospective employer – be they private or public sector – could tell I knew my business. The answer: consider the Project Management Professional certification.
