MS Academy Dec month PMP boot camp photos

By God’s grace, we had 27 PMs participating the December month PMP boot camp. They were from IBM, HCL, Wipro, Visteon, Patni, Cognizant, Dell, PayPal, Verizon, Frost and Sullivan, BWIR, TelcorIndia, 3i infotech, and Lycos.

When I founded MS Academy in December 2009, I thought I will give myself one year to evaluate the results from the venture. At the end of November 2010, when I took stock, I was happy with the impact we made in the market, especially the terrific positive impact on the confidence level of the Project Managers who attended our training programs, but the bottom line from a business view was not very encouraging.

What interests me as an educator is this section below.

They had 18 PDU categories which has been reduced to just 6 categories. 3 categories in ‘Education’ and 3 in ‘Giving back to the profession’. You can see details here Revised PMI PDU categories The place where they have mentioned ‘BLOG’ is category D.
