And when you have that validation and Ken Lay that line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>piece of paper in front of your boss or maybe in front of a new line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>potential employer, it speaks volumes. It out not only speaks line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>that, you know, the step that that you've taken the time to line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>validate that, you know these things and it can lead to line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>advancement. This is a starting point for project management, line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>but it's a great starting point. Okay. And you need to line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>really dive into this if you love it like I did line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>built or knowledge and even high on the project management line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>scale. Well, it sounds like a lot of opportunities for line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>advancement and just having a better knowledge in your line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>workplace. But let's talk about the structure of this when line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>we're moving forward into the course has this line with our line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>goals overall. All. Okay. So guys, line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>best of my project management knowledge. I did kind of line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>structure this around the topics as I know them and tried line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>to make it more logical and a group of things together. line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>So the content just made sense. There was no reason to jump all line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>around and go here and then go over here. I tried to keep the line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>things that were related to gather together so that it make line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>more sense for you. line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>Well, and we appreciate that because it's based off of your line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>experience as a project manager and what makes sense for a good line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>flow. But when it comes to CompTIA and their structure, line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>what does that look like? So, guys, let's take a little line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>bit of time here to get to their website so I can show you line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>a few things and how you can find out about this. Okay. line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>So first of all, we have the top 10 dot org site. This is line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>their main site and they have all of the certifications here. line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>It's not just project. Plus, there's many other line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>certifications. So in order to look for information about line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>project, plus, specifically, you would click, click on or line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>just hover over certifications and you're going to go down and line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>click the project. Plus to see it down there. Look how nice line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>that looks when you get there here on this page, you're going line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>to get an overview of the exam where they give you a brief line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>description out here. By the way, they're going to top that. line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>They're going mention that there's 2 additions right now. line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>We're on the newest addition is what we're covering. But there line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>is an elder edition line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>and they give you a link down here, paid him down. You can line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>fill out the information over here and you can download those line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>objectives. They just want you to get a little bit of line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>information, which is typical. And then they have a little bit line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>of descriptive information over here about the exam at sales line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>that tells you who should take it. It also says things like line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>the number of questions, 90 the types of questions, you'll say line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>multiple choice and performance-based. The amount line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>of time you're going to be given, which is 90 minutes, line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>the minimum score, which is 710 and then finally you'll get line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>a prompt. The pricing details you can buy factors that are line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>cheaper than this. But the maximum pressure can pay for line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>this exam is $358. Well, this actually is really helpful to line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>be able to navigate the site and see how they structure it. line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>But you mentioned earlier about some of career advancement. line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>What what kind of jobs could be looking at after this exam? line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>So CompTIA does list a few job titles that are kind of related line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>to this exam, to remember that this is considered a good base line:-1 <v.Female.spk2 Speaker2>for your project management knowledge.
