Simplilearn's PMP Certification training content, coaching, delivery methodology and teaching capability is excellent. I took the online coaching classes as well as referred the online material on the Simpliearn website, and both were very helpful.

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.

  • 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 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.

  • If I fail the PMP® Exam, how soon can I retake it?

    You are granted a one-year eligibility period in which to pass the examination. During the eligibility period, you may take the examination up to three times. If you fail the examination three times within your one-year eligibility period, you must wait one year from the date of the last examination you took to reapply for the certification. However, after failing a certification examination three times, candidates may opt to apply for any other PMI® certification.

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

    Participants are granted 3 chances to pass the PMP® exam in one year, for the second and the third attempt for the examination, the participants have to to pay an additional fee of $275 (for members) or $375 (non-members) as a re-examination fee. The participants will have a waiting period of 1 year before the can re-appear for the exam in case they don't pass in their first 3 attempts.

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

    Yes, you can apply for re-evaluation. 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 e-mail to certappeals@pmi.org.

  • How do I document the experience?

    Use the experience verification section of the online application to record your experience leading and directing the project. Record projects individually regardless of the number of projects you include.
     
    What does 36 months of non-overlapping experience requirement mean for the PMP® 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.

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