    A PMP Certification in Chicago applicant can reschedule or cancel their exam up until two calendar days before the scheduled exam date. However, the applicant will have to pay a fee.
     
    Please read the following policy carefully:
     
    Within 30 days of the exam appointment:
     
    Rescheduling or canceling the exam within 30 days of a scheduled appointment will result in a US $70 fee. The fee is charged when you go online to reschedule or cancel. The $70 charge will appear on your credit card statement as a charge from the test vendor. 
     
    This fee is intended to help secure greater seating availability at test centers. Canceling or rescheduling a test right before the exam date means they keep other candidates from taking the exam that day.
     
    The 30-day period does not include the day of the exam appointment. For example, candidates who schedule their exam for May 5 must reschedule or cancel the exam on or before April 4 to avoid a fee.

Within two days of your exam appointment, you will be unable to cancel your appointment and you will forfeit the entire exam fee. In addition, you will not be able to reschedule your exam and will need to pay a reexamination fee to schedule a new exam.
     
    Extenuating Circumstances
    A personal emergency may cause the need to reschedule or cancel an exam within 30 days of the exam OR cause you to miss a scheduled exam appointment (resulting in a no-show status). 
     

    • Extenuating circumstances can include:
    • Medical emergency
    • Military deployment
    • Death in the immediate family
    • Illness in the immediate family
    • Natural disaster

     
    PMI will evaluate these situations on a case-by-case basis to determine if a refund of the rescheduling fee is warranted. 
     

  • How many attempts do I have to pass the PMP certification program in Chicago?

    Candidates can take the exam up to three times in one calendar year after completing the PMP course in Chicago. This PMP training in Chicago is designed to give project management candidates everything they need to pass the exam.

    The trainer was EXCELLENT. He gave real life examples which we could apply the concepts to, rather than go through the slide word for word. We could always read the slides on our own. The examples were much appreciated. very informative.

  • Top 10 reasons to get a PMP certification in Chicago

    The Project Management Professional (PMP)®  in Chicago is a globally acknowledged professional certification that validates a professional’s education and experience in project management. This coveted credential is offered by the reputed Project Management Institute to professionals who qualify in the PMP Exam conducted by the Project Management Institute (PMI)®.

    Why PMP certification? Here are the top 10 reasons you should consider getting PMP certified:

    Reason 1: Globally Acknowledged

    Who should become PMP certified? Anyone who wants the freedom to work anywhere in the world. The PMP is one of those credentials whose reputation precedes them, recognized and sought-after the world over (there are more than 760,000 PMP certified professionals worldwide as of May 2017). Achieving the PMP certification helps professionals demonstrate and showcase their skills and expertise to potential employers across the globe.

    Reason 2: Salary Bump

    If you’ve wondered why to get a PMP certification, you should know that PMP holders typically enjoy a dramatic and steep hike in salary once they have attained the PMP certification. On average, PMP certified professionals earn 17% more than their non-certified counterparts, according to the Project Management Salary Survey, Eighth Edition. According to the PMI’s Project Management Salary Survey released in July 2017, PMP certified professionals earn a median salary of $111,969 per year in the United States.

    Reason 3: Expand Your Market Reach and Scope

    PMP certification holders are a global yet close-knit community. There are many Project Management forums and online communities that attract PMP professionals from across the world who are willing to share tips, insights, and pool their experience—helping everyone stay abreast of the latest industry developments and trends.

    Reason 4: Better Job Opportunities

    PMP Certification opens up better career avenues and provides professionals with greater job opportunities in the project management world. According to a PricewaterhouseCoopers survey, 80% of high-performing projects use PMP credentialed project managers; according to the PMI Pulse of the Profession study, organizations with more than 35% PMP certified project managers demonstrated much better project performance than those without a certification.

    Reason 5: Project Management Professionals Get The Most Challenging Projects

    The PMP Certification earns a professional a challenging and important role since the certification demonstrates an individual’s dedication to project management and attests to that person’s knowledge and experience in handling challenging projects. Additionally, since even the eligibility to take the PMP exam includes both education and experience, the PMP Certification validates one’s skills and experience leading and directing projects.

    Reason 6: Project Management Professionals Demonstrate Better Project Performance

    Not all project managers are PMP certified. Consequently, project managers who lack the credential perform less efficiently than their certified peers. The standards for the rigorous PMP exam are higher than other project management certifications, testing professionals on five project management processes: initiating, planning, executing, monitoring & controlling, and closing, providing the Project manager with a detailed, standardized, actionable set of project management best practices.

    Further, in order to qualify for the PMP exam, aspirants must have an in-depth understanding of nine knowledge areas of project management, including project scope management, integration management, human resource management, time management, cost management, quality management, and procurement management.

    Reason 7: Greater Visibility To Recruiters

    Research across industries suggests that organizations prefer hiring PMP certified project managers rather their non-credentialed peers. The PMP certification is a standard that demonstrates a professional’s expertise in project management and it immediately catches a recruiter’s eye during profile evaluation.

    Reason 8: Applicable to Most Industries

    The PMP certification is an ideal bet for all project managers in various professional fields, including IT, telecom, business processing, commerce, finance, research, and more.

    Reason 9: A Great Investment for Your Future

    The exam itself falls into about the middle range in terms of cost. While not as expensive as many of the high-tech, very specific exams, it isn’t something you are likely to take lightly. At $555 a test (unless you are a PMI® member, in which case it is $405), it doesn’t seem too expensive.

    The passing rate of the PMP exam is estimated to be around 50 – 60%. Once you consider the pass/fail rate, you may decide that you need formal training. These types, of course, can cost between $1,500 and $2,000—not counting the cost of the exam.

    Reason 10: Project Management Professionals are Secure Even During Economic Downturns

    With the economy yet to get back to where it was 15 years ago, there is still plenty of uncertainty. While no one is immune to layoffs and downsizing, 80% of executives around the world believe that having a PMP certification demonstrated core competencies that made the certification holders valuable even during a recession.

    If you are considering working toward your PMP exam, Simplilearn offers a variety of project management courses that will help you pass, including the PMP Certification Training Course. Our PMP training courses are conducted by certified, highly experienced professionals with at least ten years of experience.

  • What is the difference between Contact Hours and PDUs?

    One hour of classroom instruction equals one contact hour. If you have completed a university or college course on project management that met for three hours per week for 15 weeks, you would record 45 contact hours. If only a portion of a pmp course dealt with project management, only the hours spent on project management can be applied toward the total.

    PDUs are the measuring unit used to quantify approved learning and professional service activities.

  • Do Contact Hours have an expiry date?

    No. PMI® does not mandate any expiry timeline for contact hours earned to qualify for the PMP® Exam, as long as you retain the proof (certificate). There is no deadline or expiry date, though the contact hours must have been acquired before the submission of the application to PMI®. For example, if you earn the contact hours in 2013, there's nothing stopping you from taking the exam in 2017.

  • How do I apply for PMP® re-examination?

    Participants are granted three chances to pass the PMP® exam in one year. For the second and the third attempt for the examination, the participants have to pay an additional fee of $275 (for members) or $375 (nonmembers) as a reexamination fee. The participants will have a waiting period of one year before they can re-appear for the exam in case they don't pass in their first three attempts after completion of PMP training course.

  • If I fail in the PMP® Exam, can I apply for re-evaluation?

    Yes, you can apply for reevaluation. You may submit a written request to the PMI® Certification Department for review of their decision. Requests can be sent by postal mail to PMI®, or by email to certappeals@pmi.org.

  • What does 36 months of non-overlapping experience requirement mean for the PMP Certification Exam?

    According to PMIs calculation, the concept of non-overlapping experience refers to the following:
     
    If a professional is working on multiple projects at the same time, then the experience will be counted for one project over that stipulated period for which he/she worked on the project.

    Example: Mr. A has managed 2 projects in 2016, Project 1 ran from Jan'16 to Aug'16 (8 months) and Project 2 ran from April'16 to Dec'16 (9 months). In this case, we have an overlap of 5 months (Apr'16 to Aug'16). So the experience for these 5 months will be counted as 5 months and not as 10 months (5x2=10). The non-overlapping experience is 12 months.
