I have a colleague interested in obtaining her PMP, and she read she needs the 35 hours prior to applying for eligibility. Is that true?
Can someone guide me to the step by step process of applying for eligibility for the PMP? I have a colleague interested in the process, but I can't find and confirm what the requirements are.

Kiron,

Read the book does not count as training. He should consult the project management professional handbook to see the requirements more in detail.
The following section specifies the following:

PMP Application & Payment:

The course hours may include content on project quality, project scope, project schedule, project budget,
project communications, project risk, project procurement, and project integration management.
You can satisfy the education requirements by demonstrating the successful completion of courses,
workshops and training sessions offered by one or more of the following types of education providers:
A. PMI Registered Education Providers (R.E.P.s)*
B. PMI chapters *
C. Employer/company-sponsored programs
D. Training companies or consultants (e.g., training schools)
E. Distance-learning companies, including an end-of-course assessment
F. University/college academic and continuing education programs
The following education does not satisfy the education requirements:
PMI chapter meetings*
Self-directed learning (e.g., reading books, watching instructional videos or sessions
with coaches or mentors)

Adding to both comments your "consultant" side must be PMI´s customer care.
Paul - The PMI website has all the required information.

I think you misinterpreted my response.

I was suggesting he download and read the PMP handbook (not the PMBOK Guide) as that is the ONLY authoritative source for eligibility and all other PMP requirements.

As an REP, I well know the requirements for achieving the required 35 contact hours :-)

Kiron,

Yes i misunderstood your answer, sorry for the inconvenient. Some how i thought you were referring to the PMBOK guide. Must read more careful next time, it happens.
A perfect example of failed communication, in this case from my part the receptor :) .

Thanks everyone! Super helpful and I also re-read the handbook after. It helped me remember the steps I took, so I was able to follow up and guide the PMP hopeful.
