Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) – ManagementYogi’s PMP 35 Contact Hours Online Course

This is in continuation of the following post:

There are many questions which came on ManagementYogi’s PMP 35 Contact Hours Online Course. Here, I’ve tried to address as many questions as I can. 

Question - 1: What are the applicability and validity of this course?
Answer: This course is based on PMBOK® Guide, 6th edition,along with Agile Practice Guide (APG) and certain PMI recommended references. This course will be valid for 6 months, from the date of purchase. The price of the course is $259 USD (Rs 20,719) for 6 months access or $379 USD (Rs 30,319) for 1 year access. I believe it is one of the lowest priced PMP® courses in the world. But it comes with high quality.

This course will enable you to achieve the 35 mandatory contact hours needed for the PMP exam. It's a reflection of my classroom training, which has created 100s of genuinely successful PMPs. 
Few have written their success stories: PMP Success Stories.

Question - 2: Does this course cover Agile and/or Hybrid approaches?
Answer: Yes, absolutely. Agile/Hybrid approaches will be have 50% questions in the exam. Hence, this course will all the needed details for Agile and Hybrid approaches. Every knowledge area has content on Agile. There are also processes, T&Ts which has Agile content. This course covers all of them.

In addition, this course has a dedicated lesson for Agile Project Management. I call it the 11th Knowledge Area, other 10 being in the PMBOK guide. This lesson covers in detail (nearly 3 hours of duration) the Agile artifacts, practices, events/ceremonies, Agile PMO, Agile contracting techniques, among many others.

Question - 3: What is full money back guarantee for this course?
Answer: This course comes with full money back guarantee with respect to your 35 contact hours of learning. There are no tricky terms and conditions. 
Please watch this video for more details.

Question - 4: Why I should opt for it instead of classroom training?
Answer: Because, this training is:
  • Convenient - you can learn at your own time with your own speed. You can watch the content as many times as you want. 
  • Longer duration - 6 months of duration (not just 2 or 4-days of training)
  • Low cost - much lower than classroom training
Also, if you are going for a classroom training, but the training is useless because you understood little to nothing, then where is the value? I've seen many such cases where aspiring PMPs suffer. Any form of training you take (classroom or online or any other form) should put you on a solid track towards your PMP exam success.

Question - 5: How will I be eligible to have 35 contact hours?
Answer: It's simple. You complete the entire course, primarily from “Lesson - 2: Introduction” to “Lesson – 14: Project Stakeholder Management” and "Lesson - 15: Agile Project Management". Next, you will be assessed with 100 questions. It is a comprehensive evaluation. 
After that, you will get the “35 Contact Hour Course Completion Certificate” from Management Yogi. 

Question - 6: What is ManagementYogi’s PMP 35 Contact Hour Certificate?
Answer: ManagementYogi’s contact hour certificate acts as a proof to claim the 35 Contact Hours. These contact hours are mandatory for you to appear for the PMP examination. The certificate testifies that you have completed the 35 contact hours of learning.

Question - 7: Is there a plan of action on how to complete this course?
Answer: Yes, you will receive a plan of action which illustrates the course structure, hours per individual lessons, number of videos, and number of questions – both lesson end practice questions and full-length questions. Based on it, you have to follow a simple a plan on completing this course and take your PMP exam.  

Question - 8: How can you provide the 35 Contact Hours when not an ATP or REP?
Answer: This is one of the biggest misconceptions that only Authorized Training Partners (ATPs) or Registered Education Providers (REPs) can give PMP training. It is just not true. As per PMI-PMP Handbook (link to check - page number 13 of the PMP-ECO), there are many providers who can provide the 35 mandatory contact hours. 

The snippet taken from the handbook is shown below.

They are:
  • PMI Registered Education Providers (R.E.P.s)
  • PMI Authorized Training Partners (ATPs)
  • PMI chapters
  • Employer/company-sponsored programs
  • Training companies or consultants (e.g., training schools)
  • Distance-learning companies, including an end-of-course assessment
  • University/college academic and continuing education programs
Hence, it is not needed to be a R.E.P to provide the 35 contact hours training and the certificate. 

Important Notes: Always focus on what you learn and how best you can learn.
This is 100% dependent on:

  • The content of learning, and 
  • How well the content is explained to you. 
    (Not a machine reading the content or a person just going through slide by slide. You get absolutely no value out of it, especially in exams like PMP.)

Question - 9: Why should I go with Management Yogi, compared to others?
Answer: Indeed, there are many providers who provide PMP training. Possibly, hundreds of them! But, many do not have any real-world project management experiences, work on an aggregator model and have no real contribution of their own with respect to project management domain. They are primarily focused on high profit.

I’m engaged in project management, continuously write on it, contribute towards it. The courses are continuously upgraded based on the feedback from successful PMPs. There have been many PMP success stories. I’m primarily focused on your success.

So, you decide – whom to choose:  Aggregator model with no real project management passion or from someone who is continuously engaged in project management and have created 100s of successful PMPs? 

Simply speaking, decide whom would you choose – their high profit (and many times useless training) or your probable success? 

You can also compare this course with courses provided by any other provider on these aspects:
  • Price
  • Quality
  • Content
  • Coverage

Question - 10: What happens when my application is selected for audit? What will be needed?

Question - 11: Will you help if my application is selected for audit with respect to 35 contact hours?
Answer: Yes, absolutely. After all, this course is primarily about that.  You will get full help in case proof is needed for your 35 contact hours. I’ll provide all details needed by Project Management Institute (PMI).

Question - 12: Will you help in filling up the PMP application form?
Answer: Yes, absolutely. You will get these:

 2) What to do in case of an audit
  3) Application forms from successful PMPs – there are many such application forms which will be shared with you.

Answer: Yes, definitely. Please send an email to and your questions will be answered within 3 working days or 72 hours. 

Question - 14: What is your success rate for PMP exam, who have taken the courses or classes?
Answer: I’ve taken numerous classroom and virtual sessions on PMP exam preparation, worldwide.  The success rate of people who have sincerely prepared with the plan of action I've shared, is high.
