I am a team lead for last 3 years in HR Domain(Operations) and do not have a direct Project Management Experience. I have just finished my PMP Training and concerned how I should I fill up the application form as it only requires experience in Project Management role. Please can you guide and help in filling up the form.
I would probably keep them as separate projects. It is important to note that the PMI handbook clearly states that in order to qualify to apply for the PMP certification you must have the required number of hours leading and directing a project or projects. Simply being a project contributor is not enough. You will need to include projects on your application for which you were legitimately the project manager, project leader or project supervisor. Note that any references you include will also need to confirm your role. Please review the PMP Handbook here:
I also have a similar scenario. I work as a project coordinator, but I have multiple projects that I over see at a time. I can ultimately be responsible for 5-10 projects per month and they last about a month per project. Should I include each individual project or sum everything up?
