Have you ever heard about Project Management? Do you want to become a Project Management Professional someday? If your answer is yes, then, all you need to do is to take the PMP Certification Exam and you're halfway through to your dreams! You will be able to learn many things related to project management that will help to improve yourself and see what particular career you want to pursue.
Just like any other exams, this PMP Certification Exam also has standards we need to meet in order to pass. You will go through certain methods and the PMP Course that offers necessary information to get certified.
The PMP Course that you will about to take will train you properly on what to do during the exam. With this training, you will have a better understanding about project management and how to deal with it such us making a project successful and more. You will also get to know other instructions to add up for your full preparation for the exam.
This PMP Exam certifies that an individual is well-equipped with the right knowledge and skills to be a Project Management Professional and that will be your goal. For a start, you should collect information about the departments on the exam: Project Initiation, Planning, Execution, Project Monitoring and Control, Closing and Professional and Social Responsibility
The next step is to make yourself ready to study all the fields related to project management that will come out during the exam. You could study about human resources management, cost management, risk management, time management and many more.
Get the materials needed in your study like PMP sample questions. Practice answering them so that you would have the idea on what will be the exam like. Time yourself in and see if you can get a passing score and answer them calmly within 4 hours. Then you can look to what particular part of the exam are you weak and need further study.
After months of studying, when you feel like you are ready to take the exam, you can now fill up the PMP Exam Application. In applying for the PMP Exam, two options are given: You can either go to PMI website and apply online or just get a PMP Credential Handbook and a paper application form will be given to you.
Now that you applied, you still need to meet the requirements given to get fitted to take the exam. These will be the experience and training session you need to take. Record the hours you spend for them and if ever you completed the required number of hours, you are now able to take the exam.
Well, you need to know that the PMP Exam is normally done online. It contains 200 multiple-choice questions and is done within 4 hours. After taking the exam, because it's online, you can immediately see the results and even print it out. But, if ever you have taken the PMP Exam the manual way, it will take you 6 to 8 weeks before getting the results. For me, I guess I will prefer taking the exam online. It will be more convenient than the other one.
