As documented by Darwin Li
I’ve learned that no matter what a person’s profession, earning a PMP® Certification from Simplilearn furnishes a project management professional with the organizational strategies needed for success.
Ten years ago, I stepped into an IT leadership role as a program manager with the Canadian Police Department in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The one stipulation for this promotion was that I attain a PMP certification. The job had a lot of responsibilities, including managing our 911 system.
I had a short timeframe to get certified and started using a different online learning company. My experience with that other firm was awful, and I couldn’t get through a single unit without issues. Finally, I found Simplilearn’s PMP Certification Training Course, which helped me tremendously.
The skills I acquired from Simplilearn’s course have proven to be a great help because I learned how to streamline processes after completing the course. After completing the course, I was able to understand the status of projects clearly, and I was also able to make recommendations much more quickly, which my peers were unable to do.
I chose to retire early from the police department, and I now teach people how to find early financial freedom and create generational wealth. The knowledge I acquired from Simplilearn is helping a lot in my new venture. I am planning a conference this year, and the project management skills I gained will come into play.
It’s Never too Late to Upskill
I have 20 years of database experience and a bachelor’s degree in co-op electrical engineering from the University of Alberta. When I moved into leadership about 10 years ago, the other employees looked to me to provide project direction. This was when my experience with Simplilearn proved to be invaluable. I have worked on projects my entire career, but the skills I acquired while taking Simplilearn’s PMP Certification course gave me the talent to help the project managers who reported to me or worked with me. I could also uncover potential issues if employees tried to slide things past me.
Simplilearn’s course was exactly what I needed: it was comprehensive, well laid out, and well-structured. The trainers were excellent, and the study notes were outstanding. Of all the course features offered by Simplilearn, I think the study guides helped me the most.
