The Journey is Over…well for the moment anyway.

Well it’s been 255 days since i embarked on the adventure, and last night the fruits of my labour were rewarded in the form of an email advising that I had successfully achieved my Guild of Project Certification – Expert in Project Controls (see figure 1 below).

Figure 1 – Expert Level Accreditation

What made it more worthwhile is that this was the first certificate at ‘EXPERT’ level that the GPC has issued, so its a special achievement. FYI 00120 is my GPC Membership number.

The course had prepared me well for the examination and interview, but the achieving the certificate consisted of 5 processes:

  1. GPC Profile & Skills
  2. GPC 360 Degree Capability References
  3. Library Submissions – 5 Papers
  4. Examination – 5 Essay type Questions / 5 Hours
  5. Assessor Interview

The only step left for improvement in my certification would be to aim for “Fellow” status (refer to figure 2 Below). Time will tell whether or not this path will be taken.
