FAQ

There are three requirements to get the PMP certification;

  1. You should have project management experience.
  2. You should attend formal project management training.
  3. You should apply for and pass the PMP exam.

The PMP exam is based on the PMBOK Guide which is published by the PMI and been reviewed and updated every four years. Therefore, you should attend formal project management training which explains all the concepts in the PMBOK Guide. Contact for more information for PMP Training from Britain International Academy, Kuwait.

The PMP exam consists of 200 questions. The duration of the exam is four hours. Once you apply for the exam and your application is accepted, you will be given three attempts in one year to pass the exam. If you fail to do so, you will have to wait for one year to apply for the exam again.

The PMP certification comes with many benefits, which includes:

  • It shows your commitment to learn and acquire new skills.
  • It demonstrates your professional achievements.
  • It makes you a more appealing job candidate.
  • It boosts your self-confidence.
  • It increases your employer’s confidence in you.
  • It boosts clients’ confidence in you as well as in your organization

To apply for the PMP exam, you have to fulfill three eligibility requirements mandated by PMI.

These PMP exam eligibility requirements can be classified into three categories. They are as follows:

  1. Education
  2. Project management experience
  3. Project management training

Education

The first condition is education. You should be either a Bachelor’s Degree holder (or global equivalent) or secondary degree holder (high school diploma, associate’s degree or global equivalent). The degree or diploma can be in any discipline.

Project Management Experience

The second condition is the project management experience. If you are a degree holder, you should have at least 4,500 hours (about three years) of experience in leading and directing project, and 7,500 hours (about five years) for a diploma holder.

Project Management Training

This is the last condition. You must attend 35 contact hours of formal project management training. Britain International Academy, Kuwait is one of the best and top institute providing PMP Training in Kuwait.

Most professionals working in project management do not hold the project manager title, so they get confused if they can apply for the exam.Please note that the PMI eligibility requirements say that “you should have experience in leading and directing the project.”If you’re not a project manager but are working in project management and have experience as mentioned in eligibility criteria, you are eligible to apply for the PMP exam.

This is wrong.You can get your training from any provider regardless of whether it is PMI approved or not. Although it is not necessary, I suggest you get your 35 contact hours training from Britain International Academy, Kuwait.

This is one of the most frequently asked questions by PMP aspirants on blogs and forums. Everybody has his or her own view. However, if you are asking me what the passing score for the PMP certification exam is, my answer is: nobody knows except the PMI.

If you fail in your first attempt of the PMP exam, you don’t have to panic, because you still have two more attempts within one year of your eligibility period to retake the test.

While providing PMP Training on the platform of Britain International Academy, Kuwait, BIA collects all related documents from its trainee to rectify the PMP audit objections. Because it has been observed that some professionals are worry more about the audit than the PMP exam.

Honestly, you shouldn’t fear an audit; an audit is nothing but a verification of the facts that you have provided to the PMI while filling out the PMP exam application form.

In an audit, the PMI will ask you to submit the copies of your education certificates, experience certificates, and training program certificates.

Once you provide them with these documents, your audit will be cleared within one week. Always be truthful with your experiences. Provide legitimate information to the PMI, and you will not fail the PMI audit. Failing audit is rare.

You will be notified of your PMP certification exam test result before you leave your test desk.

After answering and reviewing all questions, and you click on the submit button there will be a short survey.

After that, for a moment, the whole screen will change to a white display, and then your test result will display on the screen.

It will give you a congratulatory message if you pass the exam, and inform you that you will get your certificate within four to six weeks at the address you provided to PMI at the time of filling out the application form.

You will also see it there as well if you fail.

The PMBOK Guide; an acronym for “Project Management Body of Knowledge,” is a book that defines the standard guidelines in project management, and sets the terminology and everyday vocabulary.

PMI publishes the PMBOK Guide, and the first edition of this book was printed in 1996. Since then, this guide has been re-published every four years. As of now, the current version is the 6th Edition.

The PMBOK Guide is a process-based guide that provides a framework to manage projects. The knowledge contained in this book has evolved from the best practices of project management professionals throughout the world and in different fields. PMP trainer at Britain International Academy will provide you the complete guide during PMP Training.

PDUs are required to renew your PMP certificate every three years.

The PMP certification is valid for three years, and you must go through the CCR cycle if you are a PMP and want to keep this certification valid for more than three years.

This CCR program requires you to take part in some activities to earn professional development units (PDUs) to maintain your credentials.

The activities can be anything related to project management such as getting training on any course which could help you in project management. You will earn one PDU for every hour of activity.

According to the PMI “The professional development units (PDUs) are the measuring unit used to quantify approved learning and professional service activities.”

The PDU requirement for each PMI certification is as follows:

CertificationNos of PDU’s
PMP60
PFMP60
PGMP60
PMI-PBA60
PMI-RMP30
PMI-SP30
PMI-ACP30
CAPMPDU’s are not Required; Re-Exam is Required to renew the CAPM

The PMI has introduced the new concept of the Talent Triangle to classify the PDUs since December 1, 2015. Therefore, you will have to earn PDUs according to this new rule. The Talent Triangle divides PDUs into three categories: technical project management, leadership, and strategic and business management. You will have to earn PDUs in all three branches of the triangle.

You need 35 contact hours to apply for the PMP exam. This is one of the three mandatory eligibility requirements to apply for the PMP exam. You cannot apply for the exam without these contact hours. Britain International Academy’s PMP Training is fulfilling the requirement of 35 contact hours.

PDUs are needed when you become a PMP, and your certificate is about to expire after three years. You can complete the CCR program and renew your PMP certificate for a further three years with the help of these PDUs.
