First, I hope this is not personalized question, as the type of experiences I mention below might be part of anybody's profile. Hence, I hope my question will be helpful for others as well.
There are three parts of my job history that I need to know if they fit into PMP experience or not, as follows:
- Teaching undergraduate classes (2 years): This was part time job, but I was involved in planning the curriculum, preparing the materials, lecturing and grading.
- Master thesis project (three semesters full time), I worked on a software project, that I prepared the proposal for, obtained fund, carried out the tasks and delivered the results.
- Support position (1 year full time) : This is daily tasks of an ongoing support project, I was involved in executing these tasks, and delivering the results - I assume it entirely falls into execution phase.
These parts of my job history are my concerned, I have other parts where I led software projects in corporate environment. However, without these parts (or at least part of them) I would not be able to meet the minimum requirements for PMP (i.e., 36 months, and 4500 hours).
As my PM experience is in fact scattered over few countries, and it is little hard for me to be in touch with relevant people; I need to know first if my experience warrants me to apply for PMP, before I initiate connections with my former supervisors.
