PMP 35 Contact Hours Online Course - Full Money Back Guarantee

This course has been updated with new PMP Exam changes, effective January 02, 2021.

To know on the latest updates, you can refer the below link:

I am pleased to announce the availability of the 35 contact hours program for Project Management Professional (PMP®) examination: 


It’s a complete video course and comes with full money back guarantee. This course is based on PMBOK® Guide 6th edition from Project Management Institute (PMI®), along with Agile Practice Guide (APG) and certain PMI recommended references.

This course has been requested by many aspiring PMPs in last few months. They want to join my class, but can't join because I am not the speaker. Also, sometimes, there are geographical constraints. Many have informed that other classroom training that they attended were of no real value for them and they learned almost nothing from those sessions. 

This course is a very much like my classroom training, which has created many successful PMPs. On difference here is this: it will be an online course. On the other hand, this 35-contact hours online course has many areas of coverage, which are not possible to cover in a 4-day classroom training, e.g., 
  • 200+  additional exercises in video format (one of its kind) 
  • 6 full-length practice question sets, including full-length question set specifically on Agile/Hybrid approaches
  • 450+ lesson end practice questions 
  • 100 questions for end course assessment
    (Point based like PMI's exam and instant score result will be shown)
  • . . . etc.

How to Claim 35 Contact Hours, When not an ATP or REP? 
One of the biggest misconceptions about PMI-PMP’s 35 Contact Hour program is this: You have to mandatorily get training from a Authorized Training Partner (ATP) or a Registered Education Provider (R.E.P). Nothing can be further from the truth. 

In fact, the Handbook for PMI-PMP exam has long noted clearly on this aspect. Below, I've a direct snippet from the PMP Handbook.

The aforementioned education requirements is about the 35 contact hours. 
Reference: PMI-PMP Certification Handbook, Section: "PMP Application & Payment", Page 8 (source:
PMI-PMP Hand Book - Link to Check 

Hence, only ATP or REP can provide 35-contact hours is just not true. I’ve also noted it long back – 10 years before in an article published from North America. (Link)
  • Myth -1: Only a A.T.P/R.E.P can provide 35 hour mandatory contact program.
  • Fact: No, there are many alternatives.

With this course, you will meet the 35-contact hour pre-requisite for your PMP examination. This course comes with an end course assessment of 100 questions.

    PMP Protein: Emotional Quotient – A Risk Factor

    By Manjunath R, PMP        

            Taking ownership is the best way to get the things done. No matter what project management methodology is adapted, taking ownership always works. It is all about involving completely and taking accountability of the consequences. One needs to give his or her mind, heart and soul to the activity involved and make sure it is delivered with maximum possible efficiency. It requires lot of attention to detail. In the sense, one needs to understand the consequences of each actions. This is nothing but risk analysis. 
            Risk analysis is carried out in planning stage. Also, during execution unexpected things prop up and will become threat to the project progress. One such risk is emotions flowing through the project TEAM. The emotional balance of team members plays a very important role in the journey of the project. The emotional quotient should be kept in a watch list. If pulse of the team members isn’t understood properly, it will have an impact on project constraints. 

            Most of the times, a good rapport between the team members will be a great motivational factor. The team leader needs to respect the team member’s emotional bonding with the rest of the team. Efforts should be made to have an honest relationship, not only for the sake of the project, but also otherwise. 

            An honest relationship always works, may it be professional or family or social life. Team motivating programs should be designed to enhance the cohesiveness of the team.  If team members happen to lose faith in one another, then the fate of the project will be at stake. Having said that, people should not mix up their personal problems with profession. The distinction should be manifested. 

    Conclusion: To summarize, every team member including the team lead, should have a great bonding which will eventually contribute to the self-development as well as strategic alignment to the vision and mission of the organization.
