    • Complete the e-learning course content before the online classroom training
    • Score at least 80% in one out of the seven PMP® full-length practice tests available online at Simplilearn.com

After the PMP® Certification Exam update, the passing score is different for every candidate and is based on the difficulty level of questions being attempted by each candidate.

  • How do I fill out and submit the PMI® Application form online?

    Before you begin, make sure that you meet all certification eligibility requirements and enter the necessary information on the application. Once you start filling out the application form, it cannot be cancelled, but you can save the unfinished form and come back and complete or edit information as required. The application will remain open for 90 days, during which PMI® will send you an email reminder to complete the application.

    Please ensure that the application includes your valid email address, as this will be the primary mode of communication from PMI® throughout the certification process. PMI® will send email reminders during the process, but you must schedule and attend the examination within the one-year eligibility period.

  • Can I send my PMP® Certification Exam application by postal mail or fax service?

    No. PMI® encourages you to apply for the exam online using PMI® Online Certification System.

    How long does PMI® take to process and approve an application?
    Once you have submitted the form online, PMI® will take up to 5 calendar days to process and approve the form. However, these timelines may vary if your application has been selected for PMI®’s audit process.

  • What does PMI® expect from a candidate who is being audited?

    If your application form is selected for an audit, PMI® will request you to provide various documents, such as:
    • Copies of your diploma or global equivalent
    • Signatures from your supervisor(s) or manager(s) from the project(s) recorded in the experience verification section on the application
    • Copies of certificates and/or letters from the training institute(s) for each course recorded on the application to meet the required contact hours of project management education.

  • Who can sign copies of my project experience documents?

    Any verifying manager or supervisor can sign the Experience Verification Form and Experience PDF attachment.

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

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

  • How much time do I have to submit documents?

    Once requested, you have up to 90 days to submit all necessary documentation.

  • What happens if I fail to meet the audit requirements for the PMP® Exam?

    In the event of a failed audit, the certification fee (minus a processing fee) will be refunded. The Certification Department will take further action on a case-by-case basis. If you fail the PMP® application audit, the PMI® will deduct $100 from your application fee, and you will receive a refund of the remaining fees paid.
     

  • When do I pay the fees – before the audit or after the audit?

    You must pay the fee when you submit your application form, which is before the audit.

  • What is the PMP® Exam Fee Refund Policy?

    To claim a refund for the PMP® certification, you must place a request with PMI® at least 30 days before the exam eligibility expiry date. PMI® will retain a processing fee of US$100 if you have not scheduled or taken the examination.

  • How many attempts do I have to pass the PMP® exam?

  • It takes four to six weeks to receive the certificate after passing the exam.

  • What is the Simplilearn certificate?

Simplilearn has bent over backward to assist me in completing the course and even offered me additional course materials to study for the newer version of the PMBOK PMP test when it changed during the course of my studies. I find their customer service very accommodating and their instructors to be very knowledgeable and involved in their students progress.

I had enrolled for PMP course in Simplilearn. The material is easy to follow and explains in a simple way. The knowledge checks at the end of each module reinforce the lessons and prepare you to take practice exams. The only critic I have would be around the formula's I wish they spend more time explaining and help develop them on a brain dump sheet. Overall, this has been a great experience and would recommend Simplilearn to working professionals who are too busy to go to traditional classes.

  • Top 10 reasons to get a PMP certification

    The Project Management Professional (PMP)® 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.

    PMP is a registered mark of the Project Management Institute, Inc. 

  • What are scenario-based games?

    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, as 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.

  • What certification will I receive after completing the training?

    When you have completed the training course, you will receive a course completion certificate along with a 35-hour 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 included in the training?

    The course includes:
    • Access to our e-learning content

  • 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 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.

  • 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.

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

    The average salary for a  PMP® certified project manager is $111,000.

  • 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.
