Why get certified? It confirms your validity. It’s a challenge to turn the military skill set into a story that civilian employers understand. Teamwork, process improvement and seeing a project from concept to completion are all things we do in the army. You have to be technically and tactically efficient and those attributes directly relate to project management.
