7 Myths About The PMP® Certification Exposed (Part 2)

#4 MYTH: PMI® CHOOSES CANDIDATES FOR AUDITING BASED ON THEIR PROFILE

This is a commonly-held belief about how PMI® selects its candidates for auditing. In fact, this process is random-based, which means every PMP® aspirants stand an equal chance to be selected for an audit. The audit is just for the quality assurance of PMI®. You will need proof of your academic education, 35 contact hours of Project Management Education and your project management experience.

#5 MYTH: YOU NEED TO LEARN BY HEART THE ITTO

The ITTO (Inputs – Tool & Technique – Output) may appear to be arduous to most PMP® aspirants. However, this is the basis of the PMP® exam. However, there is no need to learn by heart 516 ITTOs in 47 processes and 10 knowledge areas. The cornerstone of this is to have a grasp of how these ITTOs work and how they interact with each other. To do this, you need to read the PMBOK® as many times as possible to dig deeper into the logic behind it. 

#6 MYTH: YOU NEED 35 PDUS TO GET THE PMP® CERTIFICATION

There is often a misunderstanding between the PDUs and contact hours. PDUs are for certification holders, which means once you become a certified practitioner, you need to earn PDUs for your professional development during the 3-year cycle. In addition, contact hours are for PMP® aspirants to become eligible for the PMP® exam.

#7 MYTH: ONLY R.E.P (REGISTERED EDUCATION PROVIDER) IS AUTHORIZED TO PROVIDE 35 CONTACT HOURS

In fact, you can get your 35 contact hours from any providers qualified by PMI®, not only from R.E.P. The only difference when you learn at R.E.P is that you do not need to submit the course curriculum if you are selected for audit. Centers recognized as R.E.P provide materials reviewed by PMI® and competent lecturers that meet standard requirements.
