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 out the PMI application form and submit it to PMI for approval.
Step 6: PMI will email your eligibility code and payment request after your online application has been confirmed.
Step 7: Make a payment for the credential cost ($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: Attend the exam with the necessary documents and strive for a score of at least 80% or better (this is a guideline rather than a rigid pass percentage criterion as PMI has not published the passing score in recent times).
