PMP Certification and 35-hour mandatory training program

The chapter conducts on a monthly basis training programs for project management practitioners who are aspiring to get PMP certified. The details of the program are as follows:

1. Eligibility criteria

The candidate should have a either:
A four-year degree (bachelor’s or the global equivalent) and at least three years of project management experience, with 4,500 hours leading and directing projects and 35 hours of project management education.
A secondary diploma (high school or the global equivalent) with at least five years of project management experience, with 7,500 hours leading and directing projects and 35 hours of project management education.

The candidate does not need the title of project manager to have the experience count, but instead must have worked in the project management processes of initiation, planning, execution, controlling and closing with identified deliverables.

2. Training program course content:

The 35-hour contact course is mandatory for candidates wanting to appear for the PMP certification Exam and is designed towards exam preparation. The course is based on PMI’ s Project Management Body of Knowledge ( PMBOK – 6 ) covering Project Management Processes in 10 Knowledge areas of Scope, Schedule, Cost, Quality, Risk, Resource, Communication, Procurement, Stakeholder and Integration Management. The course starts with describing the concepts and framework of project management. The course will also cover principles of Professional Responsibility.

Sample tests will be conducted after each session to provide an idea of the type of questions one should be ready to tackle in the PMP certification exam. A one and half hour composite test in the lines of the PMP certification exam will provide the candidates a feel for the pace one needs to maintain. Finally a session will be held on what to expect in the exam and how previous successful candidates prepared for the PMP Certification.

Participants are expected to attend all sessions of the training program in order to get the 35 PDU certificate.
