Our speaker, who is a magna-cum laude graduate of Don Bosco Technical College class 2014. Even such a young age, he has accomplished great things and one of our promising leaders in the organization.
Engr. Jean Claude de Villeres, kicking off an introduction for PMP certification. As engineers are technically inclined, we are not aware that every day we are applying project management as a tool. We were given the advantages and upgrades the certification offers, and at this time of pandemic and job security, having a global certification in your CV guarantees opportunities. PMP requirements and online application were discussed, as well as the exam proper environment. Passing the exam is the only hurdle, as you need to continue projects execution and education, as they are needed for your renewal. PMP topics were divided from initiation, planning, execution, monitoring and controlling, and closing. During each segment, a QR code was presented to gather data among the attendees.
After the presentation, the observations and concerns of the group were answered in the Question and Answer segment. The online assessment form connect was shared with the participants to express their opinions, feedback, and suggestions for improving the upcoming events of the chapter, in which part of the evaluation was quizzed-type items that measured the learning they gained from the subject.
Engr. De Villeres was presented with a Certificate of Appreciation as a professional resource speaker for imparting his invaluable knowledge and experience that encourages and builds faith for the Filipino Electronics Engineers.
Engr. Enrico Claro Delmoro (Member) of the Professional Regulatory Board of Electronics Engineering at the Professional Regulation Commission attended the webinar and was able to give insights into the PMP certification. He also updated us with a board resolution for PRC e-COGS implementation.
