Ana,

PMI is the ultimate arbiter of what counts and does not count as experience. My suggestion is to contact them for your question.

With respect to how to describe your role - there's not enough information for us to help. Most certainly, however, you will need to follow the suggested outline for the application, describing your various project roles in terms of the Initiating, Planning, etc.

Good luck!

Harry

Hi Harry!,
I wanted to say Thank you for your response and advise.
I contacted the PMI but they were not able to help me. They sent me a copy of what is on their website.
As PCO we can help with the finance and schedule follow up. I’m confused but I don’t know how to describe this in terms of the application.
Thank you again!!
Ana
