Steps to Becoming a Project Management Professional

Fulfill the Project Management Education and Work Experience Requirements

Before you can become a PMP, you have to complete all of the education and work experience requirements. The PMI gives you two different options depending on your educational background and level of education.

Here are the different educational and work experience requirements:

Candidates with a High School Diploma or Associate’s Degree must complete 7,500 hours of project management education and experience in leading and directing projects.

Kapenanso, candidates with a four-year college degree don’t have to complete as much work experience because they have more education. m'malo, they only have to complete 4,500 hours of experience in leading and directing projects or the global equivalent.

No matter what education level you have, all PMP candidates must pass a 35-hour project PMP exam prep course given by a PMI recognized provider.

This will speed things up and make sure that your application doesn’t get stopped at some point for more information or worse rejected.

After the application has been submitted, the approval email from PMI usually arrives in less than ten days and the next step is paying the fees for the exam.
