Learning path description:
The Project Management Institute (PMI) Project Management Professional (PMP) certification requires extensive training, education and experience. It helps identify professionals who have significant experience in best practice-based project management. A full list of PMP requirements can be found at the Project Management Institute but, briefly, you must meet one of the following:
- A secondary degree (high school diploma, associate degree or the global equivalent) with at least five years of project management experience, with 7,500 hours leading and directing projects and 35 hours of project management education.
- A four-year degree (bachelor's degree or the global equivalent) and at least three years of project management experience, with 4,500 hours leading and directing projects and 35 hours of project management education.
Pluralsight's PMP courses should provide you with the 35 hours of education indicated in these requirements, and help prepare you for the actual PMP exam. Note that our courses are currently in production; this link provides a list of all current courses, which may include more courses than this learning path (which is updated less frequently).
