Do I Have To Spent $2000 To Get PMP Certified?

Survey says….


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.

Free PMP Coaching / Guide

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.

Second, the rise of state power in developed as well as developing countries has made the nexus of business and government the decisive one, with far greater policy event-risk in the markets as a consequence.Barack Obama did not win the election because more Americans thought he would be a better president than Mitt Romney.

    It’s maybe comforting to think that today’s euros are somehow real and that tomorrow’s hypothetical Deutschmarks are not real, and that therefore if tomorrow those euros ceased to exist and were replaced by Deutschmarks, that there would be a loss of hundreds of billions of euros. But that’s not how fiat currencies work. Tomorrow’s Deutschmark is no more or less real than today’s euro, and in fact the most likely problem with the Deutschmark is not that it would be weakened when the Bundesbank printed lots of it, but rather that it would be such a popular currency that it would soar in value, making German exports uncompetitive.

    There’s one big exception to that rule, however. Often, a reporter spends a long time getting a big and important scoop, which comes in the form of a long and deeply-reported story. When other news organizations cover that news, they really do have to link to the original story — the place which did it best. Otherwise, they shortchange their readers.

He has taken the well-worn story of Abraham Lincoln’s final days and turned it into a pointed piece of contemporary political commentary. When he first met Doris Kearns Goodwin back in 1999, well before she had completed of the Lincoln White House, Team of Rivals, it seems Spielberg decided to film an episode in Lincoln’s life that would ring true at the time of release many years later. He chose to concentrate his “Lincoln” movie on a pivotal time in the presidency: the final five months when Lincoln had just been re-elected, when the Civil War was all-but won, and when the fractious House was undecided about whether to fall in with Lincoln’s stated aim of abolishing slavery.

    Several months into the Kim Jong-un regime, there’s little cause for optimism. There’s much cause to be on heightened alert, though, because other than belligerent press releases, the new regime has not shown any ability to deliver on its promises. The South Koreans recently held live-fire exercises on five islands near the disputed Yellow Sea boundary with North Korea; their angry neighbors, despite loudly promising a response, did nothing. As much as we can be glad there was no international incident as a result, it’s not a good sign if the reason the North Koreans didn’t follow through on their threats was that the Kim Jong-un regime was unable to control the military well enough to direct it to do so. The regime change, in other words, has not yet stabilized.
