Obtain A PMP Certification While Maintaining Your Work Schedule

This is a guest post by
Gurudutta Mohanty, writer

Project management professional (PMP) certification awarded by the Project Management Institute (PMI) is recognized in various parts of the world.

In addition to getting international recognition, the professional credential will further help you in building a successful career in project management fields.

But you have to invest time, efforts, and money to prepare for and pass the PMP Exam.

An aspirant has options to get PMP training through several traditional and online training providers.

If you are already working as a project manager, your busy work schedule will not allow you to attend classes on a regular basis.

So you have to consider joining an online PMP Exam Prep course to acquire the knowledge and skills required to clear the certification exam.

However, you must keep some important points in mind, while comparing different PMP training providers.

Course Duration and Schedule

A simple web search will fetch you information about a large number of institutions offering online PMP Exam Prep courses.

But the learning style and course schedule will vary from on training provider to another.

Also, the duration of the training provider will also differ based on the option selected by you.

That is why; you must spend some time in understanding the duration and schedule of the courses offered by each institution.

You need to choose the course that allows you t0 acquire the relevant knowledge and skill at your own pace and convenience.

Credibility of the Online Training Provider

While evaluating the PMP Exam Prep courses, you also need to concentrate on the professional reputation and credibility of the training provider.

You can find many training providers registered with the PMI.

But you have to concentrate on experience and track record of the institution.

It is always advisable to choose an institution with longer experience in offering project management training and high success rate.

You can even evaluate the reputation of an institution based on the word of mouth of the professionals who have already availed training from the institution.

Assistance of a Dedicated Trainer

You can join an online course to obtain the training without attending regular classes.

But you will still need the assistance of a qualified and experienced trainer to clarify your doubts.

So you must choose an institution that allows learners to interact with in-house trainers through emails, voice chats and phone calls.

The in-house trainer can further monitor your progress and suggest you techniques to enhance your skills.

Consider Money Back Guarantee

It may sound odd to choose an online PMP training provider based on the money back guarantee offered by it.

But the guarantee will enable you to appear multiple times for the exam without incurring any extra fees.

Also, when an institution offers money back guarantee to the learners, the same indicates the quality and effectiveness of its training methods and techniques.

Many institution allow learners to repeat the certification test without paying examination fees, whereas other offer additional instruction time to prepare you for the second attempt.


When you are appearing first time for the PMP Exam, it is important to gather information from various sources.

You can even choose the right PMP Exam Prep course based on the feedback and suggestions received from other designation holders.
