					4 Points to Keep in Mind while Evaluating the Available PMP Training
Mediums
The project management professional (PMP) certification can definitely enhance your long-term
career prospects as a project manager. The PMP certification, administered by the Project
Management Institute, is also considered as the premiere certification in project management
fields. In addition to getting recognition from your employer, clients and peers, the designation will
also enable you to join the large multinational companies.

However, a professional interested in obtaining the designation has to invest some amount of time,
efforts and resources. You have to evaluate the various options available to get credit for 35 hours
of formal project management education. Also, you have to choose the convenient PMP exam prep
mode to obtain the professional designation within a predetermined timeframe.




    1. Amount of Time Available at Your Disposal: The advancement in communication
       technologies has made it easier for the modern learners to avail training at their own pace.
       Along with the traditional classroom based training models, a modern learner also has
       options to choose from the web based self-study models. But the classroom training model
       requires a learner to attend classes on a regular basis. So you may not prefer the training
       mode, if you are already working in a company. As you have to spend long hours in
       managing and leading a project, the online PMP training programs will complement your
       needs.

    2. Nature and Structure of the PMP Training Program: You can access the PMI website to
       understand various aspects of PMP certification process. Each learner is required to obtain
       35 hours of formal project management education, (4 Simple Steps to Obtain 35 Contact
       Hours for PMP Certification) along with clearing the four-hour multiple choice exam
       containing 200 questions. Therefore, you have to refer to a wide range of study materials to
       acquire the knowledge and clear the project management certification examination in one
       attempt. Irrespective of the training mode selected by you, the educational institution will
    provide you the required textbooks and study material. However, you must compare the
    course structure to acquire the knowledge to suit your personal convenience.

3. Assistance and Guidance of an Instructor: When you decide to join a classroom based PMP
   training program, you can constantly avail the assistance and guidance of a qualified trainer
   deployed by the education institutions. On the other hand, the web based training models
   may not enable you to avail the continuous assistance of an in-house trainer. But many
   online training providers, nowadays, allow learners to avail the help of an instructor through
   emails, online chat and phone calls. If you have decided to avail the PMP training from
   online sources, it becomes essential to ensure that the educational institution is offering the
   assistance of a qualified in-house PMP trainer.

4. Monitoring Your Progress: While preparing for the PMP exam, a learner needs to evaluate
   his progress and preparedness on a constant basis. After completing a lesson, you have to
   evaluate your knowledge by answering specific courses. Similarly, you also need to appear
   for mock PMP exam to ensure that you are able to obtain the score required to clear the
   final examination. In a classroom based training setup, the instructor can help you in
   monitoring and evaluating your progress. But you have to check the types of self-evaluation
   facilities offered by the training provider, if you have opted for the online self-paced PMP
   training medium.
