  • What is the best way to send the audit documents to PMI®?

    You can send your completed audit forms to PMI®'s official address by regular postal mail or express courier service. PMI® does not accept faxed or emailed audits documents. Hence the participants should send all documents in one envelope to expedite the processing time.

Simplilearn PMP online course was excellent, covering breadth of the Project Management knowledge and processes. The online delivery is well presented with a combination of both video and downloadable notes. Having taken clinical process improvement courses and business courses in the past, I felt the PMP training brought numerous concepts together in a "simple" and cohesive package. Highly recommend Simplilearn PMP course even if you don't plan to sit for the PMP 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.

Very clear communication by the trainer, understanding participants average pace of learning and delivering with simple examples along with few breaks with some fun makes session more lively and effective. Thanks Simplilearn.

Coming from a non-profit background, this instruction really helped to reduce the learning curve and to transit knowledge from one field to another. It's also wonderful that we can go back and review the recordings and access the material on SimpliLearn. I think it's an excellent course. Thank you.

I am already confident in cracking PMP after two sessions! The trainer has a wonderful art of teaching.

Good flow, I particularly like it when you link the processes to the overall process map (e.g. using paint). That helps in understanding the logical connection/ interrelation of the processes. (e.g. deliverables undergo internal Quality control, being validated and formally accepted by customer...) I like the project documents you provide during the sessions (e.g. project management plan, sample project charter, etc.). Those are very helpful in illustrating and understanding what the content of those project documents really is.

This course was great! I feel much more confident about the material now. The trainer was wonderful! I liked that we were able to fire questions at him and he would respond with examples of his experience. Also no question was a "dumb" question. Give him a Raise! :)

    Scenario-based games are simulations of real-world cases that project managers may encounter in their everyday work. We have designed solutions for these cases, per the PMBOK Guide - Fifth Edition to help you resolve the problems in these cases. Each scenario allows you to choose a path and gauge how you fare in handling the situation as a project manager. For each correct or incorrect choice, an explanation is provided—creating a stimulating and immersive learning environment that helps you improve conceptual understanding and build your project management skills.

  • Is the PMP® Exam fee included in the course fee?

    No. Exam fees are not included for any of the courses we offer. You must pay the Project Management Institute (PMI)® to take the exam.

  • How many questions are there in the PMP® (Project Management Professional) certification exam?

    The PMP® exam has a total of 200 questions that must be answered within 4 hours. Among the 200 questions will be 25 randomly chosen questions that are considered pre-test questions for future tests and are not scored. Since they are randomly chosen, you should answer all 200 questions.

    When you have completed the training course, you will receive a course completion certificate along with a 35 hours PDU certificate. Simplilearn does not administer the PMP® certification, but once you have passed that exam, you will receive the prestigious PMP® certification from the Project Management Institute.

  • 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

  • How to 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 implies to - 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, Professional Mr. A has managed 2 projects in 2016, Project I ran from Jan'16 to Aug'16 (8 months) and Project II 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). So, the non-overlapping experience is 12 months.

  • What is the average salary for a PMP® certified project manager?

    A PMP® certification gained a higher salary (20% higher on average) than those without a PMP® certification.
