Project management can be a rewarding career. As a project manager, you’re responsible for planning and organizing crucial projects for your workplace. Even more importantly, you make sure everything’s on schedule for successful and on-time completion.
If you’re looking to dive deeper and learn more about the world of project management, you may want to consider getting certified as a Project Management Professional (PMP)®.
This important and widely recognized certification comes from the Project Management Institute (PMI). The PMP certification provides project managers with the tools they need to stay on the leading edge of business and project management. In this article, we break down the process and cost of PMP certification.
PMP certification is a widely recognized credential that distinguishes you from your peers in the field. The PMP certification process teaches you about popular project management methods like Agile and waterfall scheduling, among other industry best practices.
PMP certification requires work experience, training courses and the successful completion of an exam. Once you pass the PMP exam, you are considered a PMP. This title can help you advance your career.
The time it takes to get PMP certification depends on where you are in your career. Below, we’ll break down the experience and credentials needed to obtain PMP certification.
If you have completed high school but not a four-year degree, PMP certification requires the following.
If you have completed a four-year degree, the requirements are as follows.
Regardless of your education level, the PMP exam requires you to obtain 35 hours of formal project management training, also called “contact hours.” You can complete your contact hours either online or in person. Costs vary depending on how you complete your contact hours, but generally speaking, online PMP training courses are a less expensive option.
If you have the CAPM credential, you do not have to complete contact hours to obtain the PMP title.
Once you’re ready to sit for the PMP exam, you must submit an application to PMI. An approved application gives you the go-ahead to take the PMP exam. Typically, it only takes about three to five days to hear back from PMI regarding the status of your application.
Once you’ve met the experience and education requirements for the PMP exam, you may still need to put in some additional study time to feel ready to pass the exam. It’s up to you how long you spend studying for the PMP test, but it’s important to prepare before sitting for the test since you’ll have to pay a fee for each attempt.
The amount you’ll pay for your 35 hours of targeted PMP certification classes depends largely on where you take your courses and the format you choose. The cost of PMP training ranges from $300 to more than $3,000. Free PMP certification training is also available, but usually only as a free trial period before a paid course. Online PMP certification courses are often less expensive than in-person options, but this isn’t always the case.
Colleges and universities often offer PMP test prep courses as part of their continuing education curricula as well. Schools typically price these courses according to their regular tuition rates unless otherwise specified.
An in-person bootcamp in the DC/Metro area offered by the Certification Academy costs $1,899 and boasts a 98% pass rate when it comes time to sit for the exam. But a PMP certification course offered by UCLA runs $6,000 and includes both in-person or online options.
The first time you take it, the PMP test costs $555 for those without PMI membership. PMI members, on the other hand, pay $405. If you opt to become a PMI member at the time you sign up to take the exam, you’ll still have to pay the nonmember rate.
If you don’t pass the test the first time, you can retake it in the future. This gives you additional time to study, and you’ll already have some familiarity with the test format and content. The fee to retake the PMP test is $275 for PMI members and $375 for nonmembers.
Once your application is approved by the Project Management Institute, you’ll have one year to take the PMP exam. You can take the test up to three times in one year.
Upon successful completion of the PMP exam, you’ll be responsible for keeping your skills and knowledge up to date. The Project Management Institute promotes a continuing certification requirements program to help you do this.
In a three-year timespan, you’ll need to earn 60 professional development units to keep your certification up to date. You can earn these through courses, often offered online, in areas like leadership, business management and project management. This cycle continues indefinitely at three-year intervals. If you don’t manage to keep your certification up to date, it will be suspended for one year.
In the third year of the renewal cycle, you’ll have to renew your PMP certification by the anniversary date of your initial exam. If you are a PMI member at this time, you’ll pay a renewal fee of $60. The PMP renewal cost for nonmembers is $150.
PMP certification is a great option if you’re working in the field of project management and want to level up your career. By becoming a PMP, you’ll gain exposure to some of today’s most popular project management methods, like waterfall and Agile. You’ll take courses in business management and leadership and learn the skills you need to enhance your portfolio.
If you embark on a journey toward PMP certification, you can expect to pay $300 to $3,000 or more for the training. It then costs $405 or $555 to sit for the exam, depending on whether you’re a PMI member.
Once you’ve completed the PMP exam, you must maintain a certain level of continuing education to keep your certification active. The renewal fee, paid every three years, costs $60 for PMI members or $150 for nonmembers.
Final test Schedule
The matrix is a grid of predetermined test times for those classes that meet at regular block times during the semester. The day and time of the first class meeting during the week determine the date and time for each exam. Courses that meet outside the normal university block scheduling will be scheduled within the time block that best fits the schedule without creating conflicts for students
Exam times are as follows:
While test blocks are three hours long, the genuine length of the test is determined by the instructor.
If examination days are postponed because of weather conditions, the first make-up day is documented on the academic calendar.
Final "Common" Exams
Common Finals will need to be applied to all sections of a course not to individual instructors. For courses that are scheduled within the finals matrix, the timing of the final test will be determined immediately (by the location in the matrix). For courses requesting a common final, scheduling will not be available until late mid semester. Treatment of course conflicts for common finals will follow current set of priorities (courses with large enrollments will be scheduled first).
Common test Finals must be approved by the chair and the dean of the college and submitted to the Registrar's office. A multiple‐section course that has chosen to provide a "common" final test will be assigned to a common test block. Students who are scheduled for two common exams at the same time should check with their instructors to see which test has priority.
Course Examination Policies
Faculty are not required to administer cumulative final examinations and should assess their students as appropriate to their discipline and course content. Faculty who opt to administer final examinations must do so at the time and place specified by the Registrar's Office. Deadlines or due dates for final take-home examinations or final papers may not be earlier than the time that the Registrar's Office has scheduled the final examination for the course in question (although instructors may opt to allow such examinations or papers to be submitted early). Note: If an academic program requires that students take final examinations for accreditation purposes, faculty are expected to adhere to the requirements of their accrediting organization.
For any course with a final test during the test period, no hour-examination (or major paper or project) shall be administered or due during the last five academic days of the semester unless the college dean has allowed an exemption.
In the event that a student has three (or more) finals scheduled on the same test day, the student has the right to ask that a make up test (or exams) be scheduled to reduce the number of exams in a given day to two. Under these circumstances, required courses take priority, so the student should make every effort to arrange the make-up test for a non-required course with the respective instructor. Likewise, in the event that a student has two finals scheduled in the same test period, the required course takes priority; the student should schedule a make-up test for the non required conflicting course with the respective instructor. If for any reason a mutually agreeable solution between the student and the instructor cannot be achieved, the student should see his or her college dean immediately.
Final Exams for Hybrid and Virtual Class Sections
Exams (including final exams) for fully virtual classes should be administered virtually, as that is the modality which students selected. Exceptions to hold on-campus exams require deans' approval. An email (noting the approval) should be sent by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org so that the test location may be updated – exceptions are subject to room availability. If approved, faculty must indicate the alternate test format in their course syllabus and accommodate students who are unable to attend in-person exams.
If a class section is hybrid (includes both an in-person meeting and either an online or virtual meeting pattern), then the final test will be assigned as in-person, but the instructor may request the final test to be virtual/online depending on the modes of instruction of the hybrid section. Hybrid courses also include courses that have more than one component with different modes of instruction (i.e., the lecture portion is virtual, but the recitation is in-person) and the instructor may decide whether or not the final test is in-person in this scenario as well. Any requests for final test updates should be sent by email to: email@example.com.
Besides, the government has so far received proposals from seven companies from the US and Japan or their subsidiaries for investment in the country under the Modified Special Incentive Package Scheme (M-SIPS), Minister for Communications and IT Ravi Shankar Prasad said in a written reply to the Lok Sabha.
"Several companies, including Cisco are evaluating the various incentives offered by the government for investments in the Electronic System Design & Manufacturing (ESDM) sector," Prasad informed the House.At present, the over $47 billion US-based firm has its largest research and development (R&D) facility outside the US in India. But, it does not have any manufacturing facility in the country.
Cisco, which manufactures wireless access points or modems, has various manufacturing facilities across the globe.
When contacted, a Cisco spokesperson said: "Cisco believes that the government and industry should work together to remove roadblocks and provide enablers so that India can become a leader in manufacturing."
The spokesperson further added: "Although we have nothing to announce, companies that manufacture on a global scale will always seek to manufacture for the right reasons."
"Cisco believes that India's world-class engineering talent, along with consistent tax policies and market access, can help the country accelerate its journey towards becoming a manufacturing hub," the spokesperson said.
Prasad added that 60 companies have evinced interest towards investment under the M-SIPS in electronic hardware manufacturing so far and this does not include Cisco.
Cisco also announced that it use its "India manufacturing operations to produce and ship orders for customers in India, as well as for testing, development, logistics, and in-house repair capabilities." While the company did not specify timelines or details of what it plans to manufacture in the country, the facility is likely to be based in Maharashtra.
"We also see great value in having the entire lifecycle - from inception to development to manufacturing of the product and delivering the product – all here," Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins, told ET. Robbins, who is visiting India, had met PM Narendra Modi in June 2015 during his last visit to India.India will be the the 12th country in which Cisco will set up manufacturing facilities. Cisco also announced that it will roll out Smart City solutions in Nagpur in areas like city-wide network connectivity, secure Wi-Fi hotspots, surveillance solutions.
CBSE Class 12 test date and its format will be announced on this date
The Central Board of Secondary Education will announce the CBSE Class 12 test dates on June 1, government sources told NDTV. The major entrance exams for undergraduate engineering and medicine - JEE Main and NEET - will be held as well, the same sources said. While the Central Government is inclined to hold the Class 12 board exams, it has left state governments to decide on their own school boards.

Class 12 Board Exams Live Updates: CBSE test To Be Conducted; Dates Yet To Be Finalised
The decision was taken after a meeting between several high-ranking Union ministers, state education ministers and officials held on May 23 to decide the fate of Class 12 students whose final board exams have been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Government sources told NDTV that the Joint Entrance Examination-Main (JEE Main 2021) for admission to undergraduate engineering and National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET UG 2021) for undergraduate medicine will both be held as well. These are national-level examinations conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA).
The CBSE test format is likely to change into the short-format type, sources told NDTV. Two proposals had been placed before states - one was to hold exams in only a handful of "major subjects" and the second was to hold exams in schools but they would be of the objective-type only and of a much shorter duration. Delhi Government, at least, opposed both formats and urged the Centre to hold off examinations until all 1.5 crore students in the relevant age-group are vaccinated, said Delhi's Education Minister Manish Sisodia in a press conference following the meeting. All Delhi Government schools are affiliated to the CBSE. Therefore, the option given to states to decide about their own exams will not apply to Delhi this year.
The high-level meeting was attended by the Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal 'Nishank'; Minister for Women and Child Development, Smriti Irani; Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar; and was chaired by the Defence Minister Rajnath Singh.

CINCINNATI, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Velo3D, Inc. (NYSE: VLD), a leading metal additive manufacturing technology company for mission-critical parts, today announced Vertex Manufacturing (a subsidiary of PrinterPrezz) has ordered two new Sapphire XC printers to complement its existing fleet and meet the demands of its customers. The large-format Sapphire printers will help Vertex offer production capabilities at scale, are calibrated for Inconel 718 and GRCop-42, and will be capable of printing parts 600 mm in diameter and 550 mm in height.
As a leader in additive manufacturing (AM) and secondary processes, Vertex specializes in providing effective solutions to demanding customer engineering challenges. Capabilities include a wide range of post-processing services such as full 5-axis machining and finished-product surface treatments. Vertex currently operates a fleet of Sapphire printers calibrated to print in Inconel 718, a nickel-based superalloy that provides high strength and oxidation resistance even at near-melting point temperatures. Available at scale, Vertex also offers manufacturing using GRCop-42, a copper, chromium and niobium alloy that was developed by NASA for use in regeneratively-cooled rocket engines. With these technologies, customers spanning multiple critical industries including aerospace, space, medical devices, and semiconductor, can rely on Vertex for all challenging scenarios.
“As the AM landscape continues to mature, the technology has become invaluable, enabling faster product development times and significantly reduced manufacturing cycles,” stated Tim Warden, VP of Sales and Manufacturing at Vertex Manufacturing. “Velo3D’s fully integrated solution allows our customers to print difficult geometries with limited support structures, so they can focus on optimizing their parts rather than having to adjust and compromise designs. We’re thrilled to add these printers to our manufacturing floor, especially our new GRCop-42 printer, empowering our customers to solve their evolving demands”
With Vertex focused on advanced industries like aerospace, defense, and medical devices, customers at scale rely on Vertex to stay competitive. Vertex’s comprehensive and agile manufacturing pipeline pairs advanced tools such as Makino a61nx CNC machining and FANUC Robodrill tools to deliver finished, ready-to-use parts to its customers.
“The traction additive manufacturing continues to see in the aerospace industry is largely driven by the significant advancements that have been made and the ability for contract manufacturers like Vertex to execute successfully on its goal of delivering high-quality, finished parts, allowing engineers to focus on designing—rather than manufacturing,” said Dr. Zach Murphree, Velo3D VP of Global Sales and Business Development. “The feedback we’ve heard from Vertex’s customers has been very positive and it’s largely due to Vertex’s ability to deliver exactly what customers need.”
Vertex’s leadership team has extensive experience in AM. Greg Morris, Vertex’s co-founder, was a pioneer in the metal AM industry. In 1994, Morris founded Morris Technologies (MTI), the first company in North America to deliver a metal sintering 3D printer to market. MTI was acquired by GE Aviation in 2012.
To learn more about Velo3D and Vertex’s partnership, stop by the Velo3D booth (#2.0-D01) at Formnext in Frankfurt, Germany November 15-18.
Velo3D is a metal 3D printing technology company. 3D printing—also known as additive manufacturing (AM)—has a unique ability to Boost the way high-value metal parts are built. However, legacy metal AM has been greatly limited in its capabilities since its invention almost 30 years ago. This has prevented the technology from being used to create the most valuable and impactful parts, restricting its use to specific niches where the limitations were acceptable.
Velo3D has overcome these limitations so engineers can design and print the parts they want. The company’s solution unlocks a wide breadth of design freedom and enables customers in space exploration, aviation, power generation, energy and semiconductor to innovate the future in their respective industries. Using Velo3D, these customers can now build mission-critical metal parts that were previously impossible to manufacture. The end-to-end solution includes the Flow print preparation software, the Sapphire family of printers, and the Assure quality control system—all of which are powered by Velo3D’s Intelligent Fusion manufacturing process. The company delivered its first Sapphire system in 2018 and has been a strategic partner to innovators such as SpaceX, Honeywell, Honda, Chromalloy, and Lam Research.

This press release includes “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the “safe harbor” provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1996. The Company’s genuine results may differ from its expectations, estimates and projections and consequently, you should not rely on these forward-looking statements as predictions of future events. Words such as “expect”, “estimate”, “project”, “budget”, “forecast”, “anticipate”, “intend”, “plan”, “may”, “will”, “could”, “should”, “believes”, “predicts”, “potential”, “continue”, and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements include, without limitation, the Company’s expectations, hopes, beliefs, intentions or strategies for the future. These forward-looking statements involve significant risks and uncertainties that could cause the genuine results to differ materially from the expected results. You should carefully consider the risks and uncertainties described in the documents filed by the Company from time to time with the SEC. These filings identify and address other important risks and uncertainties that could cause genuine events and results to differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements. Most of these factors are outside the Company’s control and are difficult to predict. The Company cautions not to place undue reliance upon any forward-looking statements, including projections, which speak only as of the date made. The Company does not undertake or accept any obligation to release publicly any updates or revisions to any forward-looking statements to reflect any change in its expectations or any change in events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statement is based.
