A while ago, through a colleague of mine, I came across some very interesting certifications that are somehow specific to Project Management for Development Projects. I thought of sharing this with the community as it can add value especially for those who are considering working with NGO's in the future on projects in developing countries or those who would like to gain knowledge about what is unique about managing Development Projects. I personally found some interesting areas such as:
There are currently three certifications offered:
Some quick tips and facts to consider:
I connected with PMI with regards to those certifications and they were added to pm.com certification list under APMG International so if you go to Edit Profile then Certifications, you will see those listed there.
It would be great to see your feedback and thoughts - Good Luck to all Aspirants !
I am glad to announce that I passed the PMI-ACP Exam with Above Target rating. It was an interesting journey and very different than any of the other certifications. I thought to share my journey so that future aspirants can benefit from it.
Personally, I believe Mike's book is a must to pass the exam. Read Mike's book twice, the agile guide as well and highlight the most important items in addition to the exam outline.
I am going to talk about my personal exam experience (Without going into details or specific questions):
Good Luck to all future Aspirants !
I passed the RMP exam on March 13, 2018 from the first attempt with Above Target in all Domains and would like to share with you my RMP Adventure as it might be helpful for new apirants who are preparing to sit for the exam.
How did I study ?
How was the Exam ?
I can only discuss the exam in general without going into details or specifics as it is against the Code of Ethics:
2- Lots of lengthy and medium length situational and scenario based questions.
3- The exam definitely tests your knowledge and experience beyond any text book.
What is my Point of View ?
Finding the exam to be difficult is a positive thing that PMI made the exam that way so that it can maintain the value of this certification and only people who really deserve it and have the required skill level can earn it. I believe this is a plus for everyone who is certified as when you mention you are a PMI-RMP certified, people will react "Oh Wow, Great" which makes you feel proud and feel the value of this certification if compared to people saying : "Oh everyone can get it, it is easy".
On Behalf of all of our Project Management Team at Field & Marten Associates, I would like to wish you all in this community and your loved ones a Blessed Merry Christmas & Prosperous New Year 2018.
Years go by fast so may this year & all the coming years be full of Great Expectations, Good Health & Collaborative Working Relationships.
It was another great year being part of this growing community. It was full of challenges, learning opportunities and contributions. I look forward for another year full of achievements & giving.
Happy Holidays Everyone !
