Huge congratulations to Carmen Campos, one of the Parallel Project Training trainers, who recently became a Chartered Project Professional. She had her ChPP interview on the 31st January 2023 and was awarded chartered status on the 22nd February 2023.
The APM ChPP is a prestigious award, which requires hard work and commitment to achieve. There are only around 500 people worldwide who have earned this accreditation so Carmen truly deserves our congratulations.
Chartered status means that Carmen has proven that projects she has managed were complex and had a high level of uncertainty or unpredictability, and that she demonstrated relevant technical knowledge.
After 14 years of working in the project management industry Carmen felt the chartered standard would be evidence of the experience she had managing projects with a high level of complexity, risk and uncertainty. And as she transitioned into another chapter of her career as a trainer with Parallel Project Training it would cement her industry experience.
As part of her new career as a trainer, her personal experience of gaining chartered status would enable her to help other people grow in their own project management careers. She wanted to be able to do that at all levels of experience. Achieving chartered status will allow her to empathise with candidates on the same journey, and guide them through that journey. What better way to inspire others and relate to them, than doing the journey yourself?
