Amy Zeller, PMP
I took the Edwel course last week and sat for the exam Tuesday, and passed! Big thanks to the folks at Edwel for making sure I got into a class that worked with my schedule. Also hats off to our instructor Myra Baskerville for relaying a lot of important information in the Exam Prep class, in a short amount of time (4 days).

Emilia Voge, PMP
Edwel is a MUST boot camp for any aspiring PMP. Great company, great instructors, and all materials are at your fingertips for success.

Russell Roberds, PMP
I am happy to state that I did pass the PMP exam on the first try, three days after the class ended. I know that I would have failed miserably had I not taken the boot camp by Edwel.

Free PMP-certified advisors keep you on track

Our classroom instructors are excellent, but did you know that we provide you a coach outside of the classroom? Here is how it works as you get your PMP certification:

  • Right after registration, you are introduced to your PMP-certified adviser.
  • Working with you, your adviser will submit your application to the Project Management Institute.
  • Your adviser is there to answer your questions before, during and after the class.
Since all advisers have passed the PMP exam themselves, they can really get you over any hurdles of the PMP process.

Frequently asked questions about PMP certification

Achieving the Project Management Professional (PMP) certification is a two-part process. First, there is an application that you need to submit to the Project Management Institute (PMI). This online application asks you to detail some of your work history. It has an auto-save function so you can come back to it if you take a break from working on it. Once submitted, an employee of the Project Management Institute will review it.

Typically, the reviewer takes about five business days to review your application. Once approved, you will receive an e-mail from PMI. In the email will be an eligibility code. You will need this code to pay for and schedule the second part of the PMP certification process: the exam.

How is the PMP exam administered?
    The PMP exam is a non-adaptive, computer based exam of 200 multiple choice questions. Administered by an independent testing administrator (Prometric), each exam question has one correct answer. You have four hours to complete the exam. Most test-takers finish the exam with a little time to spare. Each question has a level of difficulty assigned to it by PMI. The “mix” of difficult and easy questions determines how many questions you need to answer correctly. At the end of the four hours, your exam will be graded immediately and you will receive your scores. The scores are the following:

    • Below Proficient
    • Moderately Proficient
    • Proficient
    It is possible to receive a below proficient score in one area and still pass. However, you will need to offset that below proficient score with higher scores in all other areas.

How much does the PMP exam cost?
    The exam costs $405 for PMI members and $555 for non-members. The annual fee for PMI membership is $139, so you save a few dollars if you become a member and then schedule your exam.

How should I study for the PMP exam?
    Close to 70% of exam questions come directly from the PMBOK® Guide, which stands for Project Management Body of Knowledge. Right now, all PMP exams are based on the 5th edition of the PMBOK® Guide,. This edition has a brown cover to it and can be bought online for less than $50 USD. A successful study plan would be the following:

    • Read the PMBOK® Guide,
    • Download a PDF version of our free textbook before registering.
    • Attend an EdWel boot camp
    • Use our exam simulator to take a few practice exams
    • If you score above 75% on our practice exams, you are ready to take the exam

    Call 800-544-1995 to discuss your learning plan.

How much time should I devote to studying?
    Before attending an Edwel PMP boot camp, we recommend 10-12 hours of pre-class reading over the course of a week or two.

Your exam will have 200 ambiguously-worded problems, randomly chosen from a huge database of 13,000 possible questions - all designed to challenge your ability to maintain focus. With so many possible questions, just knowing the key project management terms is not enough to pass the first time.

Drawing on our 25 years of experience, our instructors teach you how to break down your questions quickly and answer them the right way. Based on the PMBOK® Guide, here is what you will learn:

  • Inputs, Tools & Techniques, Outputs (ITTO)
  • Initiating, Planning, Executing, Control, Closing
  • Project Integration Management
  • Project Scope Management
  • Project Time Management
  • Project Cost Management
