PMP Certification Process

PMP certifications are offered by Project Management Institute, Inc. (PMI®), the accrediting body for PMP certification. 

KnowledgeHut’s partnership with PMI dates back to 2011 when it became a Registered Education Provider (R.E.P.). As a result of meeting rigorous standards for training quality and effectiveness over the years, KnowledgeHut has now achieved Premier Authorized Training Partner (ATP) status with PMI.  

You cannot take the PMP exam without undertaking 35 hours of project management education, either as a self-paced e-learning or live instructor-led training from an Authorized Training Partner (ATP) of PMI, like KnowledgeHut.

To fulfil eligibility requirements for the PMP exam, you must fulfill the following: 

EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND:

  • Secondary Degree (high school diploma, associate’s degree or global equivalent), OR
  • Four-year Degree (bachelor’s degree or global equivalent), OR
  • Bachelor's or Post-Graduate degree from a GAC accredited program (bachelor’s degree or master's or global equivalent).

PROJECT MANAGEMENT EXPERIENCE:

  • Minimum five years/60 months unique non-overlapping professional project management experience, OR
  • Minimum three years/36 months unique non-overlapping professional project management experience, OR
  • Minimum two years/24 months unique non-overlapping professional project management experience.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT EDUCATION

  • 35 contact hours of formal education, unless you are an active CAPM holder.

Some find the application process for the PMP exam to be quite complex. When you enrol for a PMP certification training program with KnowledgeHut, you'll benefit from step-by-step guidance by a KnowledgeHut in-house SME on your PMI® registration and membership as well as your application review and submission. The expert will hand-hold you through the entire process, so that you can focus on what matters - your exam preparation. In addition to this, you’ll also benefit from a 100% money-back guarantee.

Here are the ten steps to get PMP certified: 

Step 1: Confirm your eligibility to become a PMP certified project manager before proceeding.

Step 2: Register on the PMI® website, or become a PMI® member and member of your local chapter.

Step 3: Undertake 35 hours of PMP Training from an Authorized Training Partner (ATP) like KnowledgeHut to earn 35 PDUs (PMI’s Education requirement).

Step 4: Check out the PMP classroom training schedules & dates to find a suitable session that meets your requirements.

Step 5: Sign up for the PMP Exam by filling the PMI® application form and submit it to PMI® for approval.

Step 6: Once your online application has been determined to be complete, PMI will send your eligibility code, requesting payment.

Step 7: Pay the credential fee payment ($405 for PMI members; $555 for non-members). 

Step 8: Schedule your PMP exam on the PMI® app, my.pmi.org; you can choose to take the exam at a Pearson VUE test center or via the online proctored testing solution.

Step 9: Develop a detailed study plan and study hard; study the PMBOK® Guide thoroughly a few times, as it is one of the primary references for the Exam.

Step 10: Appear for the exam with the required documents and aim for at least 80% or higher (this is a guideline rather than a rigid pass percentage criterion as PMI have not published the pass score in recent times).

You will get detailed information about applying for the PMP exam in PMI’s PMP Handbook. The handbook provides information on all testing modalities, policies and procedures for obtaining and maintaining the PMP certification. You will find tips and important information on the certification process including the Continuing Certification Requirements (CCR) program. 

You do not need to earn all 35 contact hours from one project management course. However, it is more structured to acquire all the project management knowledge from a single course that focuses on the latest PMBOK® Guide framework.  

Yes, you should have completed the 35 PMP contact hours before submitting your PMP application. Yes. You would need to enter the course details together with the date of completion on the PMP application form before submitting. 

The PMBOK® Guide refers to PMI's Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge® , PMI’s flagship publication which is a fundamental resource for effective project management in any industry.

The book includes The Standard for Project Management. The standard is the foundation upon which the vast body of knowledge builds, and the guide serves to capture and summarize that knowledge.

The latest version is the Seventh Edition, published in July 2021.

The PMBOK® Guide is a great resource and an extremely useful one to master project management skills. 

Please note that the PMBOK® Guide, 7th Edition does not impact the PMP® Exam Prep Training Material, which has been developed to align to the PMP Exam Content Outline. It is important to note that the current PMP exam is based on the Exam Content Outline, dated January 2021, and not on the PMBOK® Guide. The Exam Content Outline summarizes the research conducted to create the PMP® exam and includes the most critical tasks required for project managers to master in their role.

Yes, you will receive a course completion certificate from KnowledgeHut on successfully completing the course.  

The time it will take you to get PMP certified depends on your effort and capability as well as your experience and qualifications. To be eligible for the PMP exam, you need to meet the experience and education requirements, and pass the PMP examination, a 180-question, multiple-choice exam. Along with fulfilling eligibility requirements, professionals typically take between 2 to 4 months to prepare for the exam.

The PMP certification status can be verified via PMI’s Certification Registry. However, inclusion in the registry is voluntary, so not all certification holders may be listed.

To verify a certification holder's status, enter an individual's last name/surname in the search field and a list of matches will be displayed.

Renewing your certification enables you to demonstrate your commitment to continuing professional development. It also demonstrates the value of your knowledge in project management to employers, peers and colleagues.  

Below are the steps to renew your PMP certification. 

  • Acquire 60 PDUs for every 3-year cycle. 
  • Enter your PDUs in the online CCR system (CCRS). 
  • Pay the renewal fee according to the instructions mentioned on the renewal reminder notification from PMI. 

Ways to earn PDUS; 

  • Through education you can earn a maximum of 35 PDUs 
  • Giving back to the PMI will get you a maximum of 25 PDUs. Volunteering activities, working as project management professional and generating knowledge are some ways to give back to the PMI.  

Professional Development Units (PDUs)

PDUs are Professional Development Units issued by the Project Management Institute®. They can be earned by completing educational training or learning opportunities, which serve to validate your participation and continued proficiency in the principles and practices of project management. 

PDUs are the measuring unit used to quantify your professional development as part of the PMI’s Continuing Certification Requirements (CCR) program. 1 PDU = 1 hour of learning/activity. 

PDUs recognize your dedication to the project management world through the award of credits for every educational effort you make throughout your career. PDUs are offered by the PMI®, and every PMI certification, except the CAPM®, requires you to earn a specific number of PDUs per three-year certification cycle.  

You will be eligible for 35 PDUs on course completion that can be used for recertification from PMI® Inc. 

You can earn PDUs by attending training programs offered by PMI Authorized Training Partners or by organizations or universities. Whenever you attend a PMI congress, webinar, conference or any other event or indulge in self-directed learning, you can earn PDUs. 

You can start earning and recording PDUs as soon as you earn a PMI certification. Any activities you have completed before earning your certification will not count as PDUs for your newly acquired certification. 

Yes, you can transfer PDUs to your next certification cycle if you have earned PDUs above the required total of 60 for PMP, in the last year of your 3-year certification cycle. The PDUs you earned in the first two years cannot be utilized in a future cycle. Further details can be found in the PMP Handbook 

No, you do not need to submit any supporting documentation to report new PDUs. However, it is recommended that you keep a folder of all PDU-related documentation handy for at least 18 months post your Continual Certification Requirement (CCR) cycle, so it is readily available should you be randomly selected for an audit. 

You can find out more about PDUs in PMI’s FAQs
