Registration Process

I registered for the PMP exam on 17-Apr-07. Actually I started the process on 16-Apr-07.

You should become a member of PMI first to register for the exam. To become a member use this link. (This is for individual membership).

For registering for the exam, follow this link.

Somehow I felt that PMI website is not that user friendly. I had to look around a lot in PMI's website to locate the link to register for membership and exam.

Registering for the exam is somewhat a long process. Giving the Project Management Experience in the application is a good time consuming job. To make this process fast I used a spreadsheet where I gave all the data of my project management experience and kept it ready. It helped a lot while feeding the data into this online application. Even then, may be because of the server delay or my network delay it took a lot of time. So be prepared. :)

Membership costs $129 (valid for only one year)
Exam registration costs $405
For non-members exam registration costs $555
You need the following to become eligible to take the PMP exam.

Educational Background
A baccalaureate degree (or equivalent) (or High school diploma or equivalent secondary school credential)

Project Management Experience
4,500 hours leading and directing specific tasks in Project Management Area (Initiating, Planning, Executing, Monitoring & Controlling and Closing)
(7,500 hrs of experience for those who do not have a baccalaureate degree)

Project Management Education
35 hrs

If you do not have any of these better equip yourself well to become eligible first.

All eligible applications may get selected to Audit. Audit is another long process.

About Audit - in my next post.

A banks is a financial institution that accepts deposits and channels those deposits into lending activities. Bank primarily provide financial services to customers while enriching investors. Government restrictions on financial activities by banks vary over time and location. Bank are important players in financial markets and offer services such as investment funds and loans. In some countries such as Germany, banks have historically owned major stakes in industrial corporations while in other countries such as the United States banks are prohibited from owning non-financial companies. In Japan, banks are usually the nexus of a cross-share holding entity known as the keiretsu. In France, bancassurance is prevalent, as most banks offer insurance services (and now real estate services) to their clients.

The level of government regulation of the banking industry varies widely, with countries such as Iceland, having relatively light regulation of the banking sector, and countries such as China having a wide variety of regulations but no systematic process that can be followed typical of a communist system.[url=http://projectcontrol.v3host.nl]CLICK HERE[/url]

PMI’s Project Management Professional (PMP)® credential is the most important industry-recognized certification for project managers. Recently I went for a PMP prep course by the training provider mentioned above, Instructor was too good and I passed with relative ease. Looking forwards to apply what I learned in PMP class in my company.
