Learn exactly how to use your military experience to qualify for the civilian Project Management Professional (PMP®) certification exam by following the 5 Key Steps:

1.Understand that mission accomplishment is project management
2.Understand the experience requirements for the PMP credential
3.Identify your projects and how many months of experience you can claim
4.Identify how many hours of experience you can claim
5.Write narrative descriptions of your projects

Military Veterans have lots of project management experience; but, most don't realize it or know how to use their experience to qualify for the test. However, at some point in your military career, you managed a project, probably more than one, and probably many more than you think are possible. It doesn't matter what branch of service you were in, what your Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) was, what rank you were, or how long you served - you did, in fact, lead and direct project tasks on many occasions.

Author Tim Dalhouse knows because he has been-there-done-that. After serving 24 years on active duty as an enlisted Marine, Tim converted his military experience into the hours needed to qualify for the PMP Exam, passed the test, was awarded the PMP credential, and has enjoyed a lucrative career as a project manager and trainer ever since. In this eBook, Tim shows how he did it, and how you may be able to achieve similar results.
