Training for the final PMI exam – at home
In total, Florent has been training for the CAPM certification exam for 3 months. The preparations have included a combination of reading the PMI book, also known as the PMBOK® Guide, and taking online tests.
Normally, you would go to a test centre to take the final exam, but many things have changed lately due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. However, it is still possible to take the test online – and Florent did so from his home office in France and passed in his first attempt.
A common language for all project managers
As a global organisation, MAKEEN Energy has project managers all around the world. They work at different locations, in different languages and with different projects. On average, the team handles about 190 projects every year, and the PMI standard gives them a common and clear framework across all locations and projects.
Usually, Florent has a desk in one of our French offices, and he works mainly with projects in Africa and Southern Europe. As a newly certified project manager, he believes that the PMI training will make cooperation much easier.
