I am interviewing for a Project Manager position and I have a BS in Business as well as I worked as a Regional and General Manager in the Recreation and Hospitality industry for 15 plus years. Would I be eligible for a PMP program?

Entry level certification would be CAPM. You don't need experience, just some courses and relevant knowledge. As you gain experience you can move on to PMP.

How do I start?
by: Anonymous

As far as Project Management is concerned I am on ground zero.

I am a university graduate of engineering and recently obtained an MBA in business administration.

How do I start? What certification do I need to pursue(if possible) at my level?

If you have been managing and directing specific parts of a large project, which it seems you have been, it would likely have to be accepted.

For the past three years I have been managing the implementation and maintenance of a patient engagement/education system across several large hospitals. However the project has been split between three entities, and I have shared management responsibilities with PMs from the other two companies.

My counterparts have been PMP certified and I am confident that they will vouch for my experience.

Does this split of responsibilities dilute the number of experience hours I can claim?

I am trying to decide to take the CAPM exam or go straight for the PMP certification.

Thank you.

As you didn't mention any experience in managing and directing projects, it appears that right now you wouldn't be eligible.

It would mainly depend on your experience specifically in managing and directing projects.
