Bridgewater, NJ (PRWEB) March 26, 2011
A Scotch Plains project manager for sanofi-aventis, Cristina Heta recently earned the prestigious PMP® (Project Management Professional) credential, issued by the Project Management Institute (PMI). A project manager for 6 years, Cristina Heta earned the credential through Cheetah Learning, (http://www.cheetahlearning.com) an award-winning provider of global education and training for project managers and the winner of the 2008 Professional Development Provider of the Year award from PMI.
"Earning my PMP marks a major step forward in my career development and my career prospects," said Cristina Heta. "With so much at stake, I wanted to make sure I could get it right the first time but didn't want to spend six months or more to prepare. When I learned about the 4-week online accelerated PMP exam prep at Cheetah Learning, its high pass rate of 98 percent and its money-back guarantee for the PMP exam prep program, I knew that was the way to go."
According to the Project Management Institute, the PMP credential is a globally recognized standard that recognizes demonstrated knowledge and skill in leading and directing project teams and in delivering project results within the constraints of schedule, budget and resources. Candidates seeking certification as Project Management Professionals must meet benchmarks for experience and education, and pass a rigorous 200-question, four-hour test.
"I was most impressed with how comprehensive the Cheetah Learning approach was, from advice on lifestyle changes (diet and exercise), to tools and techniques that helped me retain information quickly and easily using their proprietary accelerated learning techniques." Cristina said.
A graduate of College of Saint Elizabeth, NJ, Cristina is currently an Operations and Vendor Management Specialist at sanofi-aventis and is a member of PMI, SHRM and HBA.
"I'd like to congratulate Cristina Heta on this important step," said Michelle LaBrosse, PMP, founder of Cheetah Learning and named one of the 25 Most Influential Women in Project Management in the World by PMI. "With all the challenges facing our country and our businesses, certified project managers can offer the skills and tools to make a difference," she said, "but Cheetah PMPs have an edge in learning how to achieve results quickly and effectively using our proprietary methods."
Certified PMPs' grasp of the methodologies and tools of PMI streamlines each step in projects from planning and budgeting to implementation, monitoring and reporting. More and more public and private sector employers are requiring their project managers to obtain certification, and studies by the PMI and Certification magazine show that holders of the PMP credential can earn more money, and have more job security than those without the credential. PMI's certification program maintains an ISO 9001 accreditation in quality management systems. ISO 9001 is an international standard that validates compliance with quality management processes and performance metrics.
