The PMP advantage
A Project Controller (or PCO, known as a Project Control Officer) is responsible for planning, updating and steering projects. Becoming a PCO can be a great stepping stone towards a position as Project Manager. A PCO reports on a project's status and is often seen as a project's co-pilot. While you do not make decisions critical to the project, you play a pivotal role in communication and stakeholder success. You are organized, enthusiastic and speak the same language as your PMP®.
A certification can go a long way in attaining credibility to propulse your career upwards. The Certified Associate in Project Management® certification is designed for junior project managers and students looking to make a career out of project management. This certification demonstrates to employers that you are serious about your career path in project management and that you have best practices as a benchmark. You speak the same language as Project Management Professionals around the world! The CAPM® certification opens doors to your career and within three years you can be eligible for the Project Management Professional® certification.
