PMP® Certification for project management professionals. How Should You Go About Acquiring 35 Hours of Training?
Should you learn project management that is not aligned with the Project Management Institute's Gold Standard?
No. We feel it is a total waste of time to do this if you want a career in project management.
Should You Take a Certification Class before you Take Exam Prep?
That would depend what organization provides you your training. In our experience most PMP Certification Classes are not necessarily aligned with PMI's PMBOK® Guide
, and many provide a lot of conflicting information. So when you take a Prep Course you will need to forget a lot of what you learned. Yes, PMP Certification classes are formal project management training and these certification courses fulfill the 35 hours of education required for the PMP Exam. However, you may not be prepared to pass the Exam. Much of your materials may not even be aligned to the PMP Exam.
Best approach is the SmartPath LLC approach.

And you will have the skills to manage your projects and the roadmaps to guide you for both your projects and the PMP Exam based on industry's best practices.
There's absolutely no reason to take two kinds of training, and absolutely no reason to study for hundreds of hours before coming to class. This is why we have the fastest methods. Learn it correctly from the start and there's no unlearning in order to pass the PMP Exam. Study using our methods and you will still study less hours. All of these reasons make our learning system so powerful!
