Compared to the PMP ?


Considered easier than CPA

I’m studying for the cdfm now and it’s a lot easier

20 hours of study in total for all 3 parts should be enough to pass the test

Not difficult

AITA? my manager came in today coughing up a lung and she sits at the desk right next to me. She says she doesn't think she has COVID but doesn't want to test because if it is positive then she has to quarantine. I asked her to wear a mask if she's in the office with me and she said no. I went to the director and basically said that either she goes home or I go home.
