PMP Certification Cost
The Project Management Professional (PMP)® exam is considered the ‘gold standard’ certification for many project managers and employers.
The standard is high, both for the exam itself and also for the eligibility requirements. In particular, you need to be able to evidence that you have 35 contact hours of formal education. Are you seeing the costs already start to add up?
The latest edition of A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) is larger than ever before. The exam covers a huge range of topics and is more experience-based than it was in the past. That is why it’s no longer enough to memorize what you need to know. You also have to be able to understand and apply the concepts.
