I’ve seen you need experience in the field before becoming a PM. But now I’m seeing what the next step for me is to achieve this career.

If you are a welder look into going to the quality side of things. Most companies are generous in helping gain certifications and I think six sigma experience would help too.

Hi Josh,

I would also recommend looking into the Project Management Profession (PMP) certification and see if you can get certified. The best advice is 1) know how to be an effect project manager, and 2) know how to differentiate and market yourself to get the role that is best for you. Hope this helps.

Best,
John

Hello,

I would look at getting some education in this area first. I've looked into this also, I'm already working on managing projects, but I also have a BSME.

Look into this school, it is online.
