"The APMP Certification process has allowed me to take a step back from my day to day activities and gain a broader perspective on how industry perceives the proposal management profession. I gained insight into areas of proposal management which I had maybe only been partially exposed to in my career. The process served as sort of a 'career checkup,' not only identifying strengths in my background, experience and skills gained, but opportunities for personal and career development which will allow me to take the next step in my career as a proposal manager."
Tom Fieldson, Rockwell Collins, PPM.APMP
