By participating in Destination Imagination (DI), students learn valuable project management skills. Did you know that these skills are highly sought after in the workplace, and even on college campuses?
For a limited time, our friends at PMI Educational Foundation (PMIEF) are offering 250 Destination Imagination students (grades 7-12) the opportunity to document their knowledge and skills by earning a Fundamentals of Project Management digital badge at NO COST. The badge complies with Mozilla Open Badge standards, making it easy to share and easily verified by potential employers or colleges.
To take the exam, students will need an adult (Team Manager or teacher) to monitor them while they are taking the test. The test is given online, so students will need access to a computer and the internet. If you are interested earning a badge that demonstrates to future employers and college recruiters the project management skills you have learned through Destination Imagination, find an adult who is willing to monitor the test for you and have them contact Kris Beisel at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up your exam access.
The 50 question, 1-hour test will test your knowledge of project management and will use the language of the Project Management Institute. The following subjects will be covered by this exam:
- Project Stakeholder Management
- Project Risk Management
- Project Communications Management
- Project Human Resources Management
- Project Quality Management
- Project Time Management
- Project Score Management
- Project Integration Management
- Process Groups
- Project Management Foundational Knowledge
All of that may sound more intense that what you learned in Destination Imagination, but DI participants experience and lead the project management process as they work through the Challenges. You do a part of the project management process at every meeting!
To ensure that you have a strong understanding of the vocabulary and to prepare for the exam, you will want to review Destination Imagination’s Roadmap resource (your Team Manager has a copy) and PMIEF’s Project Management Skills for Life® resource (available in the Learning Resources Library at www.pmief.org. Please note that you may need to create an account to gain access to the document.
Grab your Team Manager or teacher and a few of your friends and earn your badge!
