If it has been some time since the project was undertaken then people may have moved on –use www.linkedin.com to find old colleagues • Once you have a comprehensive list of projects break these down into how much time you spent in each PMI project phase –beware, this can take longer than it looks! • Remember PMI does audit the applications, so be honest about your experience

  9. 9. www.harrybakerprofessionals.com | 0802 839 1360 The Benefits of PMI® Certification • PMI’s certification and credentials are distinguished by their global development and application, which makes them transferable across industries and geographic borders • PMP® is different to PRINCE2® in that it provides techniques and activities to manage the project i.e. how to be a project manager, whereas PRINCE2® provides the structure and processes that the project manager should use for form and govern the project • Whilst the PMP® is not as well known in the UK as the PRINCE2® qualification, it is highly respected and it is a useful differentiating factor for project managers who want to evidence their ability • For example, holders of the PMP credential have regularly commanded higher salaries than non-credentialed individuals (PMI 6th global salary survey showed PMP® qualified individuals were paid 10% more than individuals without the qualification) • PMP® consistently appears in the top ten U.S. qualifications that enhance individual career prospects PMP is a registered mark of the Project Management Institute, Inc.
  10. 10. www.harrybakerprofessionals.com | 0802 839 1360 What do people say about the course? • “It was great to be able to dig deeper into how to manage the project and I picked up lots of tips, especially in how to assess the progress of my project.” • “PMP is very different to PRINCE2 so I did have to learn some new terms but I work with a lot of international teams and they refer to the project charter a lot so it was good to finally understand where they were coming from” • “I was looking for the next step. I have PRINCE2 and MSP but I wanted to know more about the technical aspects of project management. It was a tough course, lots to learn in the week which makes it intensive but it was definitely worth it. I feel like a ‘proper’ project manager now.” • “A tough week, so much information to get in my head but I liked the pace, and I felt that everything we did was relevant to my projects and how I can tackle some of the more difficult aspects of planning and estimating.” • “Some of the terminology was American, especially the contract terms but it still made sense and helped me get a deeper understanding of how to manage my international suppliers.”
