What is the PMP Certification Cost? Or How Much Does the PMP Exam Cost?

How do I prove my PMP experience?
+

While applying online for PMP Certification to record your experience of leading and directing the projects, use the experience verification section on the web page. The experience has to be in a professional setting and does not necessarily have to be paid work. Work done on school projects or personal events would not qualify as work experience. You must record all the project experience individually irrespective of number of projects you include. You can only count the time spent on one of the projects toward fulfilling your eligibility requirements for each month you worked on multiple, overlapping projects. Using the example below, the time spent working on Project One from Oct-Jan would count as four months toward the eligibility requirement, while the time spent working on Project Two during Feb-Mar would count as two months toward the eligibility requirement. However, you cannot count the time working on both projects during Nov-Jan twice. Therefore, Project One and Project Two equal six months (Oct–Mar) of project management experience toward your eligibility requirement.

How difficult is PMP certification with 2021 updates?
+

The difficulty level of PMP Certification Exam has certainly increased with the introduction new Exam Content Outline (ECO). In addition to this new ECO, PMI also increased the syllabus of the exam. Before Jan/02/2021, the go-to reference book was PMBOK Guide 6th Edition. Now, the number of reference books has gone up to 10 (Refer Question # 12). The candidates now have to study more, refer a greater number of books and understand the three new domains of the exam. The exam has certainly become difficult; however, you will be able to pass the PMP exam with flying colours with right resources, study guides, study routine, mock tests and better ATP.

What are the eligibility criteria for PMP certification?
+

You must meet certain educational and professional experience criteria to be eligible for the PMP Certification.. Before application submission, please ensure that you have accumulated all the project management experience within the last eight consecutive years. The details of eligibility criteria are mentioned in the table below.

Eligibility – years of experience Educational Background # of Contact HoursRequired
Minimum five years/60 months unique non-overlapping professional project management experience* Secondary degree (high school diploma, associate’s degree or global equivalent 35 contact hours of formal education unless you are an active CAPM holder
Minimum three years/36 months unique non-overlapping professional project management experience* Four-year degree (bachelor’s degree or global equivalent) 35 contact hours of formal education unless you are an active CAPM holder
Minimum two years/24 months unique non-overlapping professional project management experience* Bachelor's or post-graduate degree from a GAC accredited program (bachelor’s degree or master's or global equivalent) 35 contact hours of formal education unless you are an active CAPM holder

What is the PMP pass rate?
+

PMI uses sound psychometric analysis to determine the passing score in the PMP Exam. Project professionals from around the world and many different disciplines are used by PMI as subject matter expert todetermine the number of questions a candidate must correctly answer to pass the Exam. Each correct answer scores one point on the exam and the final score is calculated by summing all the points. Depending on the number of questions answered correctly, you will be placed in one of the performance rating areas which you can see on the report.

Is PMP better than MBA?
+

This is like comparing apples and oranges. MBA programs are at least 1 year long and cover major subjects like Sales, Marketing, Economics, Finance, etc. You receive a post graduate degree or diploma after completing the course from a University. PMP, on the other hand, is a certification course catering to the management of projects in an organization. I would say that PMP is rather a very small subset of MBA. There are many individuals who completed their MBA and also are PMP Certified. This could be because of organizations’ requirement for managing projects.

What is the validity of PMP Certification? What is the PMP Renew Process?
+

The PMP Certification is valid for 3 years e.g., the certification is valid until Feb/09/2024 if you pass your PMP Exam on Feb/10/2021. PMP Renewal process is simple. All the PMP Certification holders must maintain their certifications through participation in the PMI’s Continuing Certification Requirements (CCR) program. Participating in professional development and learning activities allow certification holders to earn Professional Development Units (PDUs) which would help them to renew their certifications every 3 years. You are required to earn 60 PDUs in 3 years to renew your PMP Certification. You can refer to CCR Handbook from pmi.org for more details and instruction on how to earn and track PDUs in CCR.

Can I take the PMP exam without experience?
+

Please refer question # 4 to know and understand the eligibility criteria for taking the PMP Examination. It clearly states the minimum work experience required to be eligible for taking the certification exam.

What happens if you fail PMP exam?
+

If you fail your PMP exam in the first attempt, you are eligible to appear for the exam 2 more times in one year from the date of approval of your application. e.g., You submit your PMP application and it is approved on Jan/10/2021. You are now eligible to appear for PMP exam 3 times until Jan/09/2022. You take the PMP exam on Mar/10/2021 as your first attempt and you fail it, you still have 2 more attempts to appear for the PMP exam until Jan/09/2022.Re-examination fees apply to the second and third attempts to pass the examination.

Is a PMP certification worth it?
+

TApart from earning 20% more than Non PMPs (per PMI Salary Survey), there are multiple reasons which can make the PMP Certification worth. You as a certification holder become a better manager, better leader, understand the system from bird’s eye and worm’s eye view, better at managing conflicts, better at understanding the risk and so on & so forth. In my experience, PMP Certification is worth it.
