Eating, Training and Project Management

The last couple of weeks have been great.  Food has begun to taste good again, I am gaining some much needed weight back and as a result, my energy level has increased.  All the parts finally came in for our treadmill and I have begun putting in some time on it.  It feels good to actually break a sweat again.

Since I am still not back to work, I still have a bunch of free time.  I am going to do some online training.  I am going to work towards getting my project management certification.  As an IT Manager, can anyone recommend which project management certification would be most beneficial?  I am leaning toward CompTIA + Project.

Crystal signed up for the Tri for a Cure again this year.  There is a link to the right to make a donation toward the cause.  This year they need to raise $350.

Also, Crystal and I wanted to say congratulations to Shana and Chris.  We are so happy for you!

PMPs are great. Try

It's great that you got some rest. And that you used your time wisely by training yourself with project management.

I guess you would fit with Risk Project Management. As an IT Manager, you may have worked under pressure and experienced how to control it.

Thanks for sharing!

I'm so glad to hear each week is getting better and better!

Project Management???? Ug. You know what I mean. The study tests in PMI.ORG are good, but I have to say the PMP test is WICKED hard and takes a TON of study time. The CompTIA+ that you mention is much more reasonable. Now that I've been in the job for 5 months and work for a company that's VERY SERIOUS about their project management, I realize the PMP is a good credential to have, but overkill... especially for PWD. Good luck.

Stay healthy - don't over do on the public germs!
