I am applying to take the PMP exam and need advice on where to go for the Educational Hours. I want to be sure I'm spending the money in the right place!
Network:18



I would like to know what the best options are for the Educational credit hours. I would like to do a one week boot camp, however if there is an option that doesn't cost me $2,000 I'll be quite interested in learning about it!

Check out courses on Udemy. Along with the Rita Material, I did a course given by Joseph Phillips there. I found it to be helpful and it will give you the 35 educational hours needed at a fraction of the cost. His courses usually run $200 but there are often sales. I think I paid $15 for the course at the time.

Same for me. I took both of Joseph Phillips' online seminars at Udemy to qualify for the required contact hours:
1. PMP Exam Prep Seminar (PMBOK Guide 6th Ed), 35 PDUs. About 25.5hrs of video.
2. PMI-ACP Exam Prep Seminar, 21 PDUs. About 13hrs of video.

Then I supplement with new 2018 study guides by:
1. Kim Heldman for PMP Exam, 9th Edition.
2. J Ashley Hunt for PMI-ACP Exam, 1st Edition.

As you know, reading PMI guides and external cram books don't count for contact hours. Both the Udemy courses were purchased during discounts, like $15.

Wow! That is a much better number. How long do the courses take? I really appreciate the information.

Mike,

You set the Pace. Also, note that in a separate course he offers 3 practice exams (100 questions each). I looked up the courses on Udemy and I currently see them for $11.99.

PMI R.E.Ps(Registered Education Providers) can be found on PMI site.

https://ccrs.pmi.org/search/providers

Even PMI local chapters provide the required Education Contact Hours

https://www.pmi.org/membership/chapters

Moreover, these contact hours can also be obtained "online".
All above options are less than what you mentioned.

I see that. I’m really happy to see these options, Google is pretty limited for this kind of information. Thanks so much!

Udemy is g]a good option like Janice said but Just make sure that the provider is accredited by PMI so you can guarantee getting your 30 contact hours.

You can also check other providers like Simple Learn ... The link Najam provided will give you an idea and many options.

Good Luck

I was able to use Udemy in one of my applications. However, when I go to the CCRS dashboard to report PDU's I have not found Udemy in the list of providers. Therefore, I have not been able to use them for PDUs

Udemy is not listed on CCRS. Try searching for his company "Instructing.com, LLC" or search the course activity id e.g. "PMIACP416" or "109EPSWB".

I did the same on my PMI applications. I don't mention Udemy.

I have also used SimpleLearn and LearnSmart (which I think is now called RedVector)
