What if you have your 35 hours of training already?
Trainees who have already taken their 35 hours of formal project management training and are pre-approved to take the PMP Exam should consider allowing enough time to complete all of the quiz practice before taking the exam. Many courses that provide you 35 hours of formal education don't cover what you need to know to pass the PMP Exam.

Most people know less than they realize when they come to training so allowing at least 10 to 20 days to do some additional Prep Exercises can be great risk mitigation. You will need to complete all online quiz practice to stay compliant with our pass guarantee. (We pay for the third exam based on compliance for 4 or 5 day course when you start at exam one.) It's even better to take full advantage of the Online Quiz Practice, dedicating your evenings and a weekend to give yourself a 10 to 15 day practice window at the very least. You can request the Online Quiz practice after purchasing your class, if you wish to begin your practice early in order to take your Exam faster after training. However, this won't help you unless your 35 hours of education covered all of the processes. We find that many people coming from other centers of learning do not have enough in-depth knowledge to begin practice questions before taking our quizzes. You can be the judge of that. At SmartPath LLC we don't believe in cramming for the Exam because you cannot apply what you have crammed. We have shown that understanding is key to higher passing rates.

What if you have not taken a PMP Certification class before?
If you have not taken a PMP certification class before, you should allow at least 15 - 20 days to take your Exam or even up to 30 days if you feel you need it. If you have gaps, take advantage of the many resitting opportunities where you get additional instructor assistance Live Online during class. We provide free PMP Online Quiz Subscription for up to 30 days only. You can purchase additional timeQuiz Extensions for a nominal fee but most will not need extensions. Online quiz practice is designed to guide your learning, increase your speed and increase your accuracy through understanding. You use them along with your materials for easy look up.

What Happens to Resitting when the classes are already full?. There is no onsite resitting. All resitting is 100% Live Online, so the size of an onsite class doesn't matter.
