FAQ: 35 Contact Hour PMP Exam Prep Course
35 Contact Hours Certificate
The PMP35H course includes multiple series of mini exam simulator activities you must answer with a passing grade (75%) to earn your certificate of 35 Contact Hours. These activities include comprehensive explanations and can be redone an unlimited number of times until you pass them successfully. You can retry these groups of questions as many times as necessary to get the passing grade and earn your contact hours certificate.
The 35 contact hour certificate of completion is included in your online course and updates online automatically while your progress in your activities. You can print off your certificate from within our training center at anytime after you purchase the PMP35H course. You do not have to wait for a specific period of time, but you do have to complete all the activities which count towards your certificate before it will show that you completed 35 contact hours of education.
Once you have completed your course activities, the certificate of completion can be printed at your own convenience for your records and application. We want our students to be able to have immediate access to their certificate. Please note that we do not ship a paper version of your certificate but we keep all records of certificates issued by our company and we are available to respond to any audit or request from PMI or Third Party regarding certificates issued by PMCAMPUS.com since 2005.
The contact hours certificate of project management education that you earn at PMCAMPUS.com is a training credential and does not expire. You would be able to use it towards your PMP exam application at anytime in the future.
How long it takes from buying to completing training?
After you purchase you should receive immediately your course welcome email with login information and instructions. Then, you are ready to start browsing your course and earning contact hours.
The time it takes to complete the training depends on various factors such as your ease to learn online, the time available you have to study and your educational background and experience, which is different for each person.
For the course PMP35H (35 Hour PMP Exam Prep), Typical study time is in the range 35-50 hours. The course "Study Road Map" gives more details on timing and sequencing of all learning activities.
When you purchase supplemental courses, or other training materials, you will need to factor that as well into your preparation time.

Our PMP35H course is designed to help you pass the PMP exam. By purchasing and then completing the PMP35H course you will be able to satisfy PMI's 35 contact hours education requirement.
However you may also experience you need other supplemental courses we offer to fully prepare for the demanding PMP examination. Here are many individual factors which will determine how prepared you are to take the PMP exam such as:
