Make sure you are fully informed before spending money on PMP training of any kind. Knowledge is power, and there are tons of free resources out there for you to learn how deep the water is before you dive in.

So I’ll take this opportunity to give some tips and point you to resources I’ve created in the past to help guide you through the maze.

I recently answered some questions which spurred this post:

Hi Josh;

Thank you so much for your email. I really really appreciate the time you took to write back to me personally. I had almost registered for a boot camp costing me over $2,000. I thought the 35 contact hours training has to be done in class and can’t be done online. So, going through a boot camp that gives you certificate for the required 35 contact hours mandatory to sit in an exam made sense at that time. This actually fits my busy life style. Again, thanks for the advice.

There are times when it takes a few days for me to respond to questions, and I’m so glad I reached him in time, I do not recommend boot camps at all! Too much money and too much focus on memorization in my opinion.

As for the 35 contact hours, you can get that online via the training I used myself and now promote as an affiliate: there are other options and some people prefer self-study with books, but this is what I used myself and recommend.

Check this out (note the second headline, “No Boot Camps” ) LOL :

Documenting Experience

This is one of the questions I answered, since the application process by itself is probably the most daunting part of the whole process.

I put together a template I used to organize my own experience:

All About Audits

I recommend you read this (and the comments too)

And if you have questions after all that, you can always reply to any coaching email I send to you and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

Feel free to leave questions in the comments here too, for the benefit of all.

The Obamas did not dance the whole night; it had been a long day. Besides, it’s always too crowded to dance much at presidential inaugural balls. The larger ball was packed to the gills, with little room to move around, let alone dance. At the larger ball, some 35,000 guests were expected to fill the Washington Convention Center to watch the presidential couple’s pas de deux.
