The PMI Project Management Ready certification is a new way for students to immerse themselves in the project management industry and get involved with this passionate community of professionals. This is an entry level certification that does not require any prior work experience in project management and/or may not have the minimal educational hours needed to take the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) exam. We had a conversation with Darko Dimitrovski, a project management business expert, regarding the importance of getting a professional international certificate in this branch.

What is Project Management?
To my practical opinion, the project management is virtuosity skill that persistent people have in order to lead people and processes in delivering the majority of project goals.
What is this project methodology used for?
There are different approaches in explaining, as well as understanding methodologies. The point with the methodology is that methods will always provide you with the nearly ideal framework how to do it but the actual WoW (Way of Working) is dependent on the environment and the people that you are collaborating with.
So, make good progress with methodology but always rely on your experience and environment that you are working in.
Why is it important to start learning Project Management in high school?
The most important thing is to start learning project management in the early stages of development. The best results can come from combining junior managerial as well as operational skills simulateously with conventional education.
What are the career pathways or benefits for the students who may follow the Project Management path?
To be honest, it depends from the path that they will choose. The real Project management is an excellent skill which embraces social as well as technical skilled mindset which can be very useful for every future managerial position.
Why is having an international certification a big advantage in the business world?
As the working environment has begun to develop internationally, working with virtual teams and the recognition of your knowledge and experience are made possible only through international certifications. In other words, an international certification is the way to work globally.
