Self Study for PMP Certification

The PMP certification is the highest certification for Project Managers. It is issued by the Project Management Institute in USA.

Eligibility Criteria for PMP Certification
To be eligible to sit for the PMP exam, and get PMP certification, you need to have 3 things.

  1. Degree or Diploma
  2. 4500 hours (3 years) of project management experience for Degree holders; 7500 hours (5 years) of experience for Diploma Holders. If you are not sure about how to compile your experience and check if it meets the 4500 hour requirements, you can contact the PMP Trainer in the class.
  3. 35 Hours of Formal education in Project Management ( 35 PDU Certificate).

Self Study for the PMP Examination

Yes, you can do self study for the PMP examination. In fact, once you have attained the 3 minimum requirements for the PMP Exam, almost all people will do self study for at least 6-8 weeks (about 2 months), before they will be ready for the PMP examination.

Usually, at Intellisoft, in our 4 Day PMP Examination Preparation Training Workshop in Singapore, or Malaysia, we help each student to come up with an individualized study plan, based on the amount of time available. This is a must, because of the sheer amount of study material.

There are 10 knowledge areas, and 5 process groups. In between them, there are 47 unique processes, each with its own Inputs, Tools & Techniques & Outputs.

Most PMP Books in the market are quite voluminous, huge and scary to look at. If you do not have a study plan, you will soon begin to wander, and begin to procrastinate.

In the PMP Boot camp at Intellisoft, we will help you to come up with a study plan, that is easy to follow, requires only 1-1.5 hours per day, and has a extremely high success ratio. Over a thousand students have followed it, and passed the PMP exam after studying and following the study plan created with Intellisoft.

How to Do Self Study for PMP Certification?

One of the first things you should do is to set a deadline – by when do you want to achieve the PMP certification? Set a date.

Nothing works better than a deadline. Remember your old college days? Most of the time, you used to complete that college assignment the night before it was due to be turned in… Remember those days!

Well, the PMP Exam is not something that you can take lightly and study the night before only. You need to study consistently for a longer period, usually 6-8 weeks.

So persistence. Consistent Persistence is required.

If you really desire the goal of being a certified PMP, you must exercise persistence, consistently. Study each and every day…. even if you study for only 1 hour each day.

You will be amazed at the progress you can make in a week of consistent effort.

Find a Buddy or a Partner with whom you can practice, and quiz each other for the PMP exam preparation.

This helps tremendously, and checking each other brings in some accountability. Now you have promised your buddy that you will study, so you end up studying.

In the PMP Training workshop in Singapore, our certified PMP trainers will give you hundreds of tips, techniques, tricks and mock exam questions to prepare, and get ready for the PMP certification examination.

Follow it, act on it, consistently. And you will be ready for the certification exam in no time.

We can help you!

To your success in the PMP Examination. All The Best!
