Project Management, as a career is on the rise as the demand for the number of people who have the skills and expertise in executing and planning projects is on the rise. As a result, many professionals are opting for PMP certification, which is the most popular and among the most widely sought-after certification courses going around right now.

As far as the PMP Certification eligibility goes, you need to have 3 years of relevant project related experience. Apart from your prior work experience, you would also need 35 PDU’s or 35 hours of training from a PMI recognized institute. There are various institutes across the country who provide such trainings, but it is essential to check the credentials and authenticity of the institutes and the quality of trainers who conduct the workshops. Always check the PMP course details in its entirety before going ahead.

The PMP Certification course details of the institute will generally give you a good overview of how the institute would be conducting their course, and the manner in which they operate. Every institute has a different structure, way of teaching and study material that they use. The best ones teach you in a conceptualized manner, give you the correct study material as per your needs and clear all your doubts- before, during, and after the course.

It is advisable for you to be involved in some kind of a project-related work before you opt for this certification, as you would be better equipped to understand and grasp the concept and apply the same as well. Not necessarily a project manager, but having a fair bit of understanding in handling a real-time project would add great value to you. Any PMI- member or consultant from the REP Centers can guide you with the experience sharing if you are eligible or not.

As per recent studies, it was seen that a person with a PMP certification ends up earning a 20 percent higher salary compared to their counterparts who are not PMP certified. This trend transcends geographies, i.e. it is seen in many countries thereby underlying the importance and the recognition or appeal of this certification.

The total cost of getting the certification depends on the training cost of the institute as well as the PMI membership and exam fees that you would be paying for, while writing the exam. The PMI Membership cost is USD 139 and exam cost would be USD 405. Thus, the total cost of just writing the exam is well over USD 500, i.e. USD 544 to be precise, which is close to 40 thousand INR taking into consideration the conversion rate today. Thus, it becomes all the more important to choose the right partner, i.e. the right institute who makes sure that all your concepts are clear while you attend the workshop, and also provide post workshop support.

Make an informed choice before going ahead with any institute, as PMP is a certification that can add a lot of value to your career and getting it right is very essential, as you only have to get it right once.

All the best preparing for PMP.
