Hey! Still looking to get your PMP certification?
Don't forget the PMP Preparation class offered by PM One!
Date: December 7-11, 2015
Course Cost: $2099
This 5-day bootcamp has been successfully preparing students for the PMP exam for 11 years in South Carolina! PM One is the ONLY training provider in SC that is 100% dedicated to training project managers. Why trust your project staff with any other provider?
A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) - Fifth Edition should be used as a study reference if taking the PMP® exam. Though the Fifth edition is very similar in many ways to earlier editions, the test is based only on the Fifth edition and using an earlier version may not cover the changes that were made.
Note: Looking for opportunities for more education? Check out the "Education Opportunities" here!
PMPs are required to attain 60 PDUs within a 3-year period. PDUs are classified in five categories, and PMI Members can track and record PDUs online.
CAPMS are not required to attain any PDUs; however, CAPMs are only allowed to hold the CAPM designation for a maximum of 5 years. After 5 years, CAPMs must apply for PMP certification or retake the CAPM exam.
