I have been contacted by a colleague who has a friend that is pursuing the SP-PMI certification.  Is there anybody out there that has the cert that is willing to answer questions for a perspective candidate.   If so, please email me at dldavispmp@gmail.com.

I would also ask that you put a brief summary of the test content on here, so I can talk a little more intelligently on the topic.  I can talk constraint, critical path, slack, lag, float and other rudimentary terminology, but I cannot get into the level of detail that I would expect to be needed to obtain the credential.

I do know one of the biggest challenges in my group is optimizing multiple schedules across projects.  Things such as analyzing change across projects, determining impact to benefits realization when schedule slips, and models are opportunities for my education.

David, the exam content outline is probably the best reference:

I got my PMI-SP back in 2012. I would be happy to help out with questions.

Stephane, could you email me your address. I will mention to my contact that you are interested in helping. I will ask for the email of the person asking the question and then I will share that with you.

Scheduling is an art in itself. People with the PMI-SP certification such as Stéphane are well qualified to assist.

I've emailed you, David. The person can contact me directly.
