PMP certification

I recently signed up for (and subsequently received) reimbursement for the PMP certification process. The certification is for project managers as a statement of your management capability. So, the next few weeks will be filled with working, running, and studying for the test. I have heard that it is similar to other certification tests in difficulty – with something like a 70% pass rate. Good odds – but still a bit nerve wracking.

I think that the most stressful thing is that my firm is paying for the test prep materials and the actual test itself. Therefore, there is increased pressure to actually obtain the certification and provide some sort of value to the firm.

So, stay tuned for the progress on this new exciting adventure. Hopefully my brain still works after I am finished.
