    Common PMP Training and Certification Questions:

    Is the PMP® exam difficult?

    It definitely can be! Any certification, especially an advanced certification such as the PMP®, can be difficult if candidates are not properly prepared. Proper preparedness includes understanding and being able to apply the exam material, as well as, being comfortable in a testing environment. We design our classes to address both needs so that students have the best chance possible to pass on their first attempt.

    Is getting a PMP® worth it?

    In most cases, yes! The PMP® certification is often a requirement for many Project Management positions and it is known to help applicants secure a higher salary for these jobs as well, when compared to their non-certified peers. There is also an added respect among colleagues that comes with earning your PMP®. No matter your motivation for earning the PMP® certification, there is a good reason to attain it.

    Can you pass the PMP® without experience?

    You can’t even sit for the PMP® exam without some experience. Depending on your educational background, you will be required to show 4,500-7,500 hours spent managing projects. However, this is not as hard as it may sound. Have you ever planned a wedding or managed a home improvement project such as building a deck or renovating a kitchen? These are all projects and if you actively managed them, they count toward your experience requirements.

    How do you become eligible for the PMP® certification?

    To be eligible for PMP® certification, you must first meet specific education and experience requirements and agree to adhere to a code of professional conduct. PMI’s® education requirements will be fulfilled by successfully completing the UMBC PMP training course, but the experience requirements are extensive, and can be referenced more specifically at www.pmi.org. The final step in becoming a PMP® credential holder is passing a multiple-choice examination designed to objectively assess and measure your project management knowledge.
