Dissertation Process and the 5 process areas of PMP

Greetings all -

   Have the opportunity to take PMP. While some of my experience outside of school can count for PMP experience, my PhD encompasses all areas and could easily take that 4,500 hour requirement to task. I'll spare the details, but Initiating and Planning (PhD proposal), Execution (the research), Monitoring and Controlling (analysis), and Closing (defense). And let's not forget the dissertation (and any peer-reviewed publications) are unique deliverables.

   Obviously I'd go into more detail on PMI, but the question is, has anyone ever heard of one claiming their dissertation process as experience for the PMP cert? I did call PMI, but they wouldn't specify/were not helpful (and had a bit of an attitude).

    That's a creative idea. You might be able to pull off counting your PhD journey as PMP hours and I can't really offer any insight for that. It would be nearly impossible I think to get a job as a project manager with that as project management experience though.

    I was on the fence about going after a PMP a couple of years ago and it would have been a "stretch" to count my project-like work experiences at the time towards the PMP. At the time I'd been on projects and I'd been the lead "student" for several class assignments, but I'd never been a PM. What convinced me to abandon the idea was looking at the excel spreadsheet used to track and submit hours. There's a couple of them out there on the Internet. Have you taken a look at one yet by any chance? Might change your perception.

    Yeah the class I'm in the instructor said she's going to send it. So I'll definitely post back.
