Some information on the PMP Examination

PMP is one of the most recognised of all IT training certification programs. Appearing for the PMP certification exam tests the capability and skills of individuals who have undergone the PMP training from accredited and acknowledged institutes in the country. The main test is in verifying the knowledge and the skills of individuals in leading and controlling different teams in an association, and also delivering competent results for projects. All these skills and the ability to execute can be learned through a proper PMP certification training which gets tested during the PMP Certification Examination.

The six major areas covered by the PMP training constitutes of-
•    Initiation of Projects
•    Planning of Projects
•    Execution of Projects
•    Controlling of the activities linked to a project
•    Closing a Project
•    Taking up professional responsibilities

Once you are well trained in all these arenas, you become fit to appear for the PMP certification Exam. Since the certificate in this discipline is recognised by IT companies all over the world, scoring high in the Exam opens up huge number of professional opportunities for you and gives you an edge over and above other IT professionals.

Myths about PMP Certification exam:
There are a number of myths that pertain when considering attempting to appear for the PMP certification Examination. Most of these myths are devoid of any base and hence are regarded as myths. The following points are going to help you tackle a couple of these myths and learn about their validity.

1.    Scoring 61% is must-
There is no hard and fast rule that says that if you do not score 61% in tour PMP exam then you fail to become eligible for the certificate. Though this had been once the case, the rule no longer exists. The percentage of correctly answered questions in the exam is now calculated using a special Psychometric Analysis procedure which allows you to get higher score for answering questions which are tougher than the ones which are not. Hence you do not get marked for the number of questions answered but the tackling of the difficult ones. The passing percentage is determined based on the difficulty of the set paper.

2.    Courses are to be taken from PMI Registered institutions-
There are a number of training companies all over the nation who are providing competent and heading PMP training and do not need to be authorised or unauthorised by the PMI registration process. Though anyone and everyone can provide a good PMP certification program training, a PMI REP gives you the assurance that the training providers are reviewed on their standards by the PMI.

Apart from preparing yourself with adequate training and ridding yourself of the various myths, you also need to make yourself ready to face the unexpected in the PM exam. You might go through cover to cover of the PMBOK but still find things that are out of the context. The PMP exam rules clearly specify that they will also test the contenders on concepts that are not present in the PMBOK.

Along with PMP Certification, ITIL and PRINCE2 certification are also important in IT industry. Choosing better training center is also key thing to get this certification. Visit Skillogic Knowledge Solutions is one of the top training centers for PMP, ITIL and Prince2 certification in Bangalore.
