What is PMP Certification?

Getting the Project Management Professional (PMP) certification is a two-part process. First, there is an application that you need to submit to the Project Management Institute (PMI). The application requires you to document 4500 hours of time working on projects within the last eight years. Additionally, you should have completed 35 hours of project management-related training or education. PMI details everything in full in their handbook.

If you think you meet these requirements, then you can submit your application from the section of the PMI website. The online application has an auto-save function so you can come back to it. Once submitted, an employee of the Project Management Institute will review your application. Typically, the reviewer takes about five business days to review your application. Once approved, you will receive an e-mail from PMI. In the email will be an eligibility code. You will need this code to pay for and schedule your exam with Prometric Testing Center.

What is the Project Management Institute (PMI)?

Founded in 1969, The Project Management Institute has the following stated core belief:

Project management is a critical competence that has a positive influence on organizational results and society.

To build a community of professionals with these critical competency standards, PMI developed the PMP exam in 1984. Currently, there are almost 750,000 PMP credential holders globally

How is the PMP exam administered?

The PMP exam is a non-adaptive, computer based exam of 200 multiple choice questions. Administered by an independent testing administrator (Prometric), each exam question has one correct answer. You have four hours to complete the exam. Most test-takers finish the exam with a little time to spare. Each question has a level of difficulty assigned to it by PMI. The “mix” of difficult and easy questions determines how many questions you need to answer correctly. At the end of the four hours, your exam will be graded immediately and you will receive your scores. The scores are the following:

  • Below Target
  • Target
  • Above Target
It is possible to receive a below target score in one area and still pass. However, you will need to offset that below target score with higher scores in all other areas.

How much does the PMP exam cost?

The exam costs $405 for PMI members and $555 for non-members. The annual fee for PMI membership is $139, so you save a few dollars if you become a member and then schedule your exam.

How should I study for the PMP exam?

Close to 70% of exam questions come directly from the PMBOK Guide which stands for Project Management Body of Knowledge. Right now, all PMP exams are based on the 6th edition of the PMBOK Guide. This edition has a blue cover to it and can be bought online for less than $75 USD. A successful study plan would be the following:

  • Read the PMBOK
  • Work through our 40 hour online course
  • Attend a +1 Upgrade boot camp .
  • Use our exam simulator to take a few practice exams

  • I took the boot camp last Monday thru Thursday and I passed my PMP, on my first attempt, on Friday afternoon.

  • I took my bootcamp last week and passed the next day. My instructor was easily one of the best instructors I've ever had.

  • I leveraged the course as somewhat of a capstone to my preparation period. I took the exam the very next day after the boot camp ended, and passed.
