Hi ILs, I am an engineering graduate with 10 years experience (32 yrs) working in a leading industry as one of the heads of the technical Unit of the firm. In a year’s time, I am looking for a career change and have an idea of switching over to the project management field for various reasons and on that note I have a few doubts which I would request the PMPs and members in IL to enlighten. I had gone through the details of both the CAPM and PMP certification in the website and have understood the basics of both the courses. Even though, I have an experience of 10 years, it has been in technical / administration fields all these years (project management of minor nature also included as a part of the job during one of the appointments). Now, I am slightly confused on what would be right certification to take at present either CAPM or PMP. Even though, I can manage the requisite PM experience from my employer (which is one of the mandatory requirement for PMP), is it worth doing it at this stage without a great PM experience in reality or better do CAPM and then after 3-4 years do a PMP certification. Your valuable suggestions would be of great help.
