Of all of CompTIA certifications, Project+ on the surface looks like the odd duck. That is because most of the CompTIA certifications deal with bits and bytes, speeds and feeds in one way or another around computers.
CTT+ (Certified Technical Trainer) and Project+ don’t seem to fit this mold. At least at first glance. And they do. The two certifications are in fact technical in nature.
And they come with acronyms (jargon) that is completely alien to a computer geek. Terms such as (WBS) Work Breakdown Structure, Gantt chart, and Stakeholder leave the geek wondering what planet they landed on.
A lot of this terminology comes from the Professional Management Inst. (PMI). PMI certification is quite expensive and takes years to accomplish. This makes CompTIA Project+ a good entry-level certification for those wishing to show their moxie in project management.
While I have not personally met trainsignal.com video host Bill Kulterman, I can say he has done a great job in laying out Project Management, even for those who are not necessarily going to take the CompTIA Project+ certification.
Perhaps it is due to all the relatively alien jargon, and generally speaking, the assessment is Project+ is a difficult exam. Fortunately, trainsignal.com includes a Transcender exam simulation so you will not find any surprises when you go spend your hard earned dollars to prove you have some clue about project management.
