The Project Management Professional (PMP) is the world’s leading project management certification and validates that you have strong project leadership skills, giving you a competitive edge. The PMP certification indicates that you are highly skilled in the key areas of project management—people, process, and business environment—and it shows your knowledge of predictive, agile, and hybrid management approaches.
You must pass the PMP exam in order to receive certification. The Project Management Institute (PMI) requires exam applicants to have a four-year degree, 36 months leading projects, and 35 hours of project management education. For individuals that did not follow the convention educational trajectory of a four-year college, PMI also accept a high school diploma or an associate degree combined with 60 months leading projects and 35 hours of project management education. There is an application process where you will need to provide proof that you have fulfilled these requirements.
The PMP exam is comprised of 180 questions.
In order to receive your project management certification, you will need to earn a four-year degree from an accredited university. You will also need to have 36 documented months leading projects as well as 35 hours of project management education. The certifying body also accepts a high school diploma or an associate degree but require extensive documented project management experience—60 months, to be exact, in addition to the 35 hours of project management education. Once you have fulfilled these requirements, you will need to apply for the exam, sit for the exam, and wait to hear your results.
You can elect to take the PMP exam in one of two places: in a test center or in your own home. Regardless of where you take your exam, you will be able to schedule your exam on the date that works best for you.
Project management training not only looks good on a resume but also teaches practical skills applicable across numerous fields. Anyone seeking to gain organizational and leadership skills and/or boost their careers will benefit from this training.
The application process involves three steps: (1) confirm you are eligible, (2) gather your information (projects you’ve led and training you’ve completed), and (3) use your information to fill out the application at pmi.org. Once you have completed these steps, your application will be reviewed, and then you will have to pay an exam fee if you are qualified to move forward. Once approved, you can schedule your exam time at a testing site near you or take the exam online.
The exam fee for PMI members is $405. Non-members pay $555.
We offer a PMP training course designed to help you receive the required hours of project management training and prepare to pass your exam.
All PMP certification courses will vary in their form and construction, but they will likely all center around PMI’s three exam domains: people, emphasizing the soft skills you need to effectively lead a project team in today's changing environment, process, reinforcing the technical aspects of successfully managing projects, and business environment, highlighting the connection between projects and organizational strategy. Content that spans the value delivery system, including predictive, agile, and hybrid approaches, will all be included across the three exam domains.
There are no specific prerequisites required to register for our PMP exam prep course. However, if you are interested in obtaining your PMP certificate within the same time period as your exam prep course, you will need to fulfill PMI’s requirements.
There is no right answer for this question because the number of hours will vary between each person. PMI requires a set amount of hours of project management education, but each person might need more time to keep studying and preparing.
Our PMP training course provides the required educational hours to obtain a PMP certification.
You will receive a PDF of a course competition certificate from EduMind after you complete our PMP exam prep course. Within 6-8 weeks of passing your PMP exam, you will receive a PMP credential certificate in the mail.
After completing our PMP exam prep course, you will have a stronger foundation in project management. You will learn topics based on the exam content outline provided by PMI, which center around people, process, and business environment. Some of the skills you can expect to learn about include conflict management, leadership, team building, managing scope, assessing risk, and more!
Project management professionals are in high demand across numerous job fields. According to PMI, research indicates that 2.2 million new project-oriented roles will need to be filled through 2027. The demand for certified PMPs means that job searching should be more fruitful. Another great thing about being a certified PMP is that project management is required in all different types of industries. There is no limit to the different options of projects you can manage.
Absolutely. PMP certification and training is extremely beneficial to career growth. Earning this certification demonstrates to employers that you have an understanding of project management trends, that you are committed to personal growth, and that you have experience managing projects from start to finish.
Although there are some project managers without a PMP certification, ultimately, having the certification is more beneficial than not having it. Being a PMP means you can increase your technical skills, lead larger projects, and advance your career. The additional knowledge and experience associated with PMP certification is well worth the effort it takes to earn it.
You will need to bring a valid, government-issued ID that included both your photo and signature. You will not need to bring any other materials, as a calculator is built into the exam. Scratch paper, erasable boards, pencils, and markers will all be provided by test administrators.
The amount of necessary personal preparation time will vary for everyone.
You receive your PMP exam results immediately after finishing the exam.
The PMP certification exam result report is broken up into two parts: the first part will contain your name, certification name, eligibility, code, report generation date, and test center code. The second part will consist of your overall performance, your performance by domain, and what you can do next. A passing performance will be described as Target or Above Target. A failing performance will be described as Needs Improvement or Below Target. If you passed, you will be able to double check your email on this document to ensure that your certificate is delivered properly. This report will also provide suggestions for further professional development in project management.
You may cancel your scheduled exam for a refund within 30 days of the date of purchase. If you cancel outside of the 30 days, a rescheduling fee will be applied. If you do not show up for your PMP exam and fail to cancel/reschedule up to 48 hours before the exam, then you will not receive a refund.
Once you obtain your PMP certification, you can now begin attaching the acronym “PMP” after your name in your resume etc. to indicate your certified status. You will need to start thinking about earning Professional Development Units (PDUs). To retain your certification, you will need to earn 60 PDUs every three years.
You may pursue a PMP for many reasons, but the top reasons typically include goals of personal growth, furthering yourself in your career, demonstrating your leadership in your industry, and keeping up with the latest trends in your field.
Since the PMP is a globally recognized certificate, it all depends on where you happen to be living. In the United States, you can expect anywhere from a 23-25% increase.
Although the process has changed over the years, it has remained relatively easy. You will need to go to PMI’s website and register for a free account. Next, select which certification exam you’re applying for. You will need to include documentation showing your educational history work experience, project management experience, and 35 contact hours of training.
After you submit your application, it will take 7-10 days to get an email that your application has been accepted. You can then choose whether you want to schedule your exam in person or online and pay the respective registration fees.
We recommend you schedule your exam as early as possible to ensure you have the study time you need. One of the problems students often encounter is they forget to apply for the exam—they will take the necessary time to prepare and study, but when exam day rolls around, their names aren’t on the list. Don’t let this happen to you! Apply for and schedule your exam before you begin studying or take a review course so that it’s completely done, and then you can fully commit yourself to your preparation efforts.
