Project Management Professional (PMP)® Student Profiles:

Student Profile: Luis Moscoso Boedo, ME, MBA PMP

Student Profile: Luis Moscoso Boedo, ME, MBA PMPI am already a little bit old and I have been involved in many interesting projects in my professional life: Chemical Plants, Nuclear Power Stations of both types, heavy and light water reactors, building of ships, bottling plants, preparation of big international tenders (privatizing of Argentinean Airports, Urea Plant Bahia Blanca, Argentina), etc. I am born in Argentina, however I have been working many years in Germany and I have currently both nationalities: Argentinean and German. I am working since 9 year as Contract and Claim Manager for the construction of the Finnish Nuclear Power Station Olkiluoto 3, based in Germany.

 

My son is living in USA (already American citizen) and my daughter in Mexico. Due to some personal difficulties I am planning to immigrate to USA in 2014, currently I do not know exactly where. What I discovered looking for a job in USA, was that my CV was considered there “too European” (I am Master on Engineering and MBA) and to avoid that cliché I decided to get the PMP Certification awarded by PMI: American Organization worldwide recognized.

I would say that I am extremely rational, like the majority of the engineers.

Maybe due to this condition I found very difficult to decide about ITTOs (Inputs, Tools & Techniques and Outputs) having to revert, in the majority of the cases, to my memory. Nobody, beginning with PMBOK 5th gives the reasons why you need a defined ITTO for a process.

I began using a lot of data bases of questions about PMP Certification and sometime I found PMP and tried with the free exemplar, which was really better than others I was using. Afterwards I decide to buy the data base; it was a good decision

As already said, the Data Base is very good and if it would be possible to clarify the reasons about ITTOs, not only mentioning how they are defined in PMBOK 5th, it will be very helpful for the students.

I do not know if I can recommend something to improve the product. The 47 processes are clear and if you have really worked in the development of projects, you have seen them already. I would say: I did not learn anything new studying for getting PMP; however I have now a clearer picture of the whole.

The students have to have a clear planning about their program for preparing the exam. At the beginning some colleagues told me that I could need approximately 100 hours for preparing it. I have spent much more than that; I think about 350 hours. The first half, I used for “studying” the PMBOK 5th (not only reading) and the second half I used for answering questions. I began on the 03.10.2013 and at the end I answered about 6.000 questions, 4000 of them from 03.11.2013 on until 10.12.2013.

I expect now, that I can get a good job in the USA with my new PMP Certification!
