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).
