If you hope to apply for PMP, there’re some requirements to be addressed – i.e. paying PMP certification exam fees, meeting requirements around educational levels, project directing and leading experience, and project management specific education.
Another way, you will be eligible once you already earned a secondary degree (high school diploma, associate’s degree or the international equivalent) plus five-year-or-more experience in project management with 7,500 hours dedicated to project leading and direction and 35 hours of project management education. Otherwise, you should have a four-year degree (bachelor’s degree or the international equivalent) and 4,500 hours leading and directing projects and 35 hours of project management education. To sum up,
In case you don’t fulfill the said requirements, no need to worry because there’s always a way if there’s a will. Archbold, a teacher of a PMP exam prep course. says that such requirements can be satisfied in the course of three to four months at the cost of $1,500 to $4,000.
Once you’re qualified for those requirements, you must sit a backbreaking 200-question exam costing $500 or so based on your membership status and whether you prefer computer-based testing. That’s final challenge facing you, and if you manage it, you’re entitled to a PMP certified project manager. This is when the result bears fruits!
