Student Profile: Leonardo Fehlberg, PMP
I'm Brazilian, living abroad nearly 10 years. I work with oil and gas projects (production and drilling facilities).I've been looking into get certified for few yeas and recently my company had a push to get their PMs certified...The most difficult part is to read the PMBOK... very difficult and generic.
I learned about The PM PrepCast because I was referred by a friend of a friend who had a long commute to work like me and decided to sign up and optimise my studies.I think the part missing are examples from other industries. Most of examples and cases are always from IT projects, which is a completely different animal from oil & gas and civil projects.
My number one recommendation is to make a quick schedule to guide the studies goals per day/week and constantly update the progress.
