  1. 1. All you wanted to know about PMP Certification Training program Does PMI Bangalore Chapter conduct the PMP 35-hour mandatory training program? The chapter conducts on a monthly basis training programs for project management practitioners who are aspiring to get PMP certified. The details of the program are as follows: What is the Eligibility criteria ? The candidate should have a bachelor's degree and will need 4500 hours of experience in project management related activities over 36 months of the last 8 years. The candidate does not need the title of project manager to have the experience count, but instead must have worked in the project management processes of initiation, planning, execution, controlling and closing with identified deliverables. What is the Training program course content? The 35-hour contact course is mandatory for candidates wanting to appear for the PMP certification Exam and is designed towards exam preparation. The course is based on PMIs Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) covering Project Management Processes in 9 Knowledge areas of Scope, Time, Cost, Quality, Risk, HR, Communication, Procurement and Integration. The course starts with describing the concepts and framework of project management. The course will also cover principles of Professional Responsibility. Sample tests will be conducted after each session to provide an idea of the type of questions one should be ready to tackle in the PMP certification exam. A one and half hour composite test in the lines of the PMP certification exam will provide the candidates a feel for the pace one needs to maintain. Finally a session will be held on what to expect in the exam and how previous successful candidates prepared for the PMP Certification. What is the Duration & time of the course conducted by the Bangalore Chapter? The course is held over two consecutive weekends as our faculties are mostly working PMPs and are able to provide their time only in the weekends. On these four days the course is held from 8.30 AM to 6.30 PM. One faculty member generally covers each knowledge area. The program is normally held in the 2nd and 3rd weekend of each month.
  2. 2. Can I know the Venue & Cost details? The course will be held in Central Park Hotel at the following address: Central Park Hotel Manipal Center Dickenson Road Bangalore Tel.: +91-80-2558 4242 The cost for each participant will be Rs. 12,000 for Non-members of PMI Rs. 9,000 for Members The cost is inclusive of cost of study material, tea and Lunch and issue of certificate at the end of the training program We strongly recommend becoming a member of PMI since besides the savings in attending this program the savings in the exam fee will more than offset the membership fee as detailed below: As a new PMI member, one will pay $141.00 made up of $119.00 PMI membership, $10.00 quot;New Member Application Feequot; and $ 12.00 to be a member of Bangalore Chapter. Now, the PMP exam costs $555.00 if you are not a member and $405.00 if you are a member. The difference is $150.00 which right there covers your membership expense. Now begin to factor in the free publications, discounts on courses, books and so on for being a member.
