Network:64554



I've raised a similar question acwhile ago about the same topic but I would like to be more specific in this question in terms of what I am looking for with regards to the RMP exam:

1- Was the level of difficulty for the exam the same as the PMP exam ?
2- Which references did you study from ? Which chapters (Communication, Risk, Stakeholders) ?
3- How much study time did it take you before you sat for the exam ?

Thanks in advance.

1. The level of difficulty was about the same as the PMP, in my opinion.

2. RMC Project Management (the name may have changed) Rita's material

3. I took about 6 months but I don't think it had to take that long. I had other obligations.

Hi Rami,

I found the degree a bit higher than PMP,

I did prefer a book "Passing the RMP certification exam the first time" to Rita's book, plus review the PMBOK

I work in risk full time for years, my study time was a few weeks

Getting PMI-RMP® Certified in 5 Steps:

PMI Risk Management Professional (PMI-RMP)® Certification
The Project Management Institute Risk Management Professional (PMI-RMP)® certification is dedicated to specializing in project risk management and so target primary already project risk managers or people who wants to become one. Nevertheless any project managers could highly benefit from this certification and it is a good complementary for already PMPs for instance.
The PMI Risk Management Professional (PMI-RMP)® highlights your ability to identify and assess project risks, mitigate threats and capitalize on opportunities. In this capacity, you enhance and protect the needs of your organization.
Who Should Apply?
If you have advanced knowledge and experience in risk management, or if you are a project manager focused on project risk management, including for large projects and/or complex environments, then the PMI-RMP® is an excellent choice for you.
You will need to study Chapter 11 of the Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide), and other sources to prepare for the exam.

Here are the stops how to:

Step 1: Get familiar with the basic resources:
• Review the ? PMI-RMP handbook ( https://goo.gl/Rss4cV )
• Review the ? Exam Content Outline (https://goo.gl/XESbYQ )
The PMI-RMP has 170 questions; 150 are scored and the others are pretest questions. The exam is split among PMI’s Five Domains of Risk Management, which are:
o Risk Strategy and Planning:
19-20 percent. Concerns tasks and processes for selecting and developing risk management procedures and tools, producing the risk management plan, and setting procedures for evaluating risks and updating the risk management plan. Be familiar with the parts of the risk management plan, especially its inputs.
o Stakeholder Engagement:
19-20 percent. Activities related to getting stakeholders and project team members on board with risk management. These tasks are important to develop a team-wide, and even organization-wide, commitment to risk management. Be familiar with risk communication procedures, enterprise environmental factors and organizational process assets, and risk tolerance evaluation.
o Risk Process Facilitation:
25-28 percent. Activities related to executing the risk management strategy. Be familiar with qualitative and quantitative risk analysis tools and techniques, estimating probability and impact, and developing contingency reserves.
o Risk Monitoring and Reporting:
19-20 percent. Activities related to evaluating risk response against data gathered, updating stakeholders and the project team on risks, and continuously improving risk management. Be familiar with data gathering and management techniques and communications management.
o Perform Specialized Risk Analyses:
14-16 percent. Activities related to advanced risk identification, analysis, and tools and techniques. Be familiar with statistics, especially concerning interpreting quantitative and qualitative data, and with building representative risk models.

Hi Rami,

well, i just have done a little research on it and it is really not easy to find a good source therefore. I have discovered some links where RMP simulators where offered but i do not know them personal, so please have a closer look on them by yourself.
From my perspective the one by Whizlabs makes a more or less good impression ...
