After taking the final exam in The Project Management PrepCast™, you will receive the 35 contact hour certificate you can use for your certification. Continue reading this article to learn more about how you can obtain the certificate.
Contact Hours from The PM PrepCast™
The Project Management Institute (PMI)® requires that you undertake 35 contact hours of training in project management before you can apply for the Project Management Professional (PMP)® Exam. The training must be completed before you can sit for the examination.
The Project Management PrepCast™ offers over 35 hours of quality Project Management Professional (PMP)® Exam video and audio training, and you will receive a 35 Contact Hours certificate after you pass The Final Exam.
Professional Development Hours from The PM PrepCast™
The PM PrepCast is a PMP Exam preparation course that PMI credential holders can use to earn Professional Development Units (PDUs). You will receive 60.5 hours of in-depth training based on the latest Knowledge, Skills, Tools, and Techniques from A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) Sixth Edition.
Instructions for Obtaining the Certificate
To receive your 35 contact hour certificate, you must pass our end-of-course assessment, which we call our “Final Exam.” The Final Exam is a 25-question, multiple-choice exam. You must answer 17 questions correctly to pass. Just like in the “real” exam, we will not tell you the correct answers.
There is no time limit for you to take our Final Exam. You can take it after two weeks, two months, or even wait for a year. Also, you can take the final exam as often as you need until you pass. We do not publish the answers to The Final Exam.
