Good point Sante.
Agreed - perhaps down the road the PMIEF could consider sponsoring or subsidizing the certification aspirations of such candidates...
I support sponsoring over reducing the price. Sponsoring does not reduce the value of the PMP certification. Reducng the price does.
First of all, lot of people succeed in project management without having a certification. Some of them have written books and are recognized fellows of institutions and universities including the PMI. The certification does not assure nothing about that. Second, my recommendation, is sending an email to the PMI and to insist about that until getting an answer.
Yes Kiron, I thought of the PMIEF, they could also assist training in especially third world countries, but it would be a massive task. If they are NFP, then I can't see why a subsidized program can't be established.
Stéphane, depends how you define "value". If the content was reduced and the pass mark lowered, I could see how the value would be diminished, but I'm not sure by lowering the price alone in special circumstances reduces the value of the certification.
I believe that anything worthwhile in your life cost you something. It does not have to be prohibitive. It should be sufficiently costly that you actually have to make a deliberate choice to invest into something.
I understand your suggestion. I'm worried that it would be difficult to implement well and it would impact the certification's standing in the eyes of future clients and employers.
Thanks Sergio, actually I did email them around 6 months ago regarding training for some aspirants in the Philippines, something I was willing to do for nothing, but I was told that any course I produced wouldn't get the backing of PMI as a registered education provider until I did that for at least 12 months, so the students wouldn't get the required number of PDU's for the course. Regarding certification, I am yet to contact them about this, and wanted to see what the forum's views were first.
