  2. The project management experience includes a four-year degree with 4,500 hours of leading and directing projects or a secondary degree with 7,500 hours leading and directing projects. 
  3. The project management education includes 35 contact hours of project management education.

The PMP® certification training is accessible in three different ways, the classroom training, instructor-led training, and the self-learning method. These modes have their ups and downs but the self-learning is considered the cheapest of the three.

Online training can either be through self-learning mode or instructor-led mode. There are good online platforms where you can get 35 contact hours of PMP® training such as KnowledgeHut.


Following are the important factors you should consider before choosing the right online platform for training:

  • Is the training provider registered?
  • Do they guarantee a 35 hours certificate? 
  • Are the videos presented by an English speaker? 
  • What is the duration of eLearning access?
