Becoming a PM – Getting Started

Getting Started

If you have to choose between formal project management education or real-world experience, choose education. Having formal training will put you ahead of others in the hiring process, and will allow you to enjoy greater professional success in the long run.

Where to Start Your Education

The first course you should take is a Fundamentals of Project Management course. This will get you off to a great start in learning the lifecycle of projects from start to finish. Courses like the ones offered by Bay3000 have the benefit of teaching you the PMI® best practices covered in the PMBOK® Guide.

The second course you should take is the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)® Exam preparation course. This allows you to pass the PMI® CAPM exam and receive a recognized credential right away!

Ways to Get More Experience

Volunteer at work, school, and non-profit organizations. As you learn, apply the concepts that you learned in training! Follow or shadow a good project manager and offer assistance. Once you have gained sufficient experience, you’ll be qualified to write the PMP® Exam.
