Can a friend buy The PM PrepCast for me?



To purchase The PM PrepCast you need an accepted credit card or a PayPal account. Unfortunately, there are a number of countries from where credit cards are not accepted and where PayPal does not offer their services. If you live in one of these countries you can purchase the PrepCast via a friend:

  • Ask a friend who lives in another country, if he can buy the PrepCast for you.
  • Your friend now buys the PrepCast in his name.
  • He MUST use your email address in the purchase.
  • You will receive the confirmation and download instructions but the account name is registered to your friend.
  • Send an email to support@pmprepcast.com and request that the name on the account be changed from him to you.
  • We will change it and send the instructions to you.

Now you can start downloading and listening.

Also important to know: When you log in to get your 35 Contact Hour certificate the system will ask you for your name again, so check your name:

  • Make sure that it is not your friend's name
  • Check  for typo error
  • Check if it is the complete name that you would want to be shown on the certificate.

    well said and you saved my day.

    Due to strong firewall at my present project network all downloads are restricted. I have tried with mobile network, but not succeeded due to heavy traffic and lack of signal (offshore_construction project), therefore not able to download a single free podcast.

    Is there any option to download in my friend's name account, and later date to transfer to my name, for 35 contact hour certification?

    Jagan - Not sure that I understand... since you are unable to download the videos where you are, how will it help if your friend downloads them?

    Can i use the study materials (36 contact hours cert.), which is going to purchase and downloaded by my friend's name (who is living in USA and return to site by next week), since, my network is restricted all downloads, where i'm living/working.

    Upon his arrival, i could copy from their system, by an external / poratable drive, so that i could prepare for exam.

    Is it recommeded? please advice...

    Jagan - Theoretically yes. But every system and every technical setup is different. So I cannot guarantee it. Please go ahead and try it with the free version. The free version contains some videos and audio files and you can try if it works for you. The free version can be found here:

    Jagan- I'm sorry but then there is nothing we can do. This is a policy of your company and we cannot circumvent it. You can try this again at an internet cafe and see if you can download it from there.
