FAQ

Frequently asked questions

Why is getting certified an important part of a career as a project manager?
Project managers seek certifications like the PMP to prove their expertise in a competitive industry and broaden their professional horizons — gaining access to many different industries they want to explore. Certification proves to employers that you have the credentials to plan, manage and maintain projects of any size.
What qualifies as project management experience?

Project management experience must be gained across all five process groups as defined by the PMP Handbook. See the handbook's breakdown of PMP Eligibility Requirements.

How does the PMP examination process work?
The exam consists of 200 multiple-choice questions that must be completed within four hours. There is no fixed score to pass the PMP exam, as this depends on the difficulty level of the questions assigned. For example, an exam with less complicated questions might have a higher passing score, while an exam with more challenging questions might have a significantly lower passing score. You will need to pass each section of the exam to progress.
What material is covered on the PMP exam?

The five domains of questions that the PMP focuses on are as follows: Initiating (13%), Planning (24%), Executing (31%), Monitoring and Controlling (25%), and Closing (7%). PMI has released an Exam Content Guide with detailed information about each domain, which you can access here.

How is the PMP certification different from other comparable certifications?
Another certification comparable to the PMP is the CAPM, which PMI also offers. The main difference between these certifications is their focus. While the PMP is a more involved, upper-level certification, the CAPM is geared toward entry-level professionals. CompTIA also has a Project+ certification that is a good pre-cursor to the PMP.
Is a PMP exam voucher included with the purchase of this course?

The course was phenomenal. I'm entry-level in terms of PMP, however, the course really opened up my viewpoints and allowed me to see the form and function that is needed in order to complete tasks and run projects.
