Course Overview
Hi, everyone, my name is Casey Ayers, and welcome to my course Earning and Retaining your PMP Certification. This course is the 14th and final entry in our newly updated series, helping you prepare for the latest version of the PMP exam based on the sixth edition of the Project Management Body of Knowledge, better known as the PMBOK Guide. By completing this course and others in our PMP prep series, you'll not only be better prepared to ace the certification exam, but critically, will also completely fulfill the mandatory training requirement that must be met before taking the exam. The PMP or Product Management Professional certification is consistently listed as one of the top five most valuable certifications for IT professionals, and is also broadly applicable to a wide range of industries. A PMP builds the skills needed to succeed as a project manager and opens new doors for those with the certification. In this final course in our PMP learning path, we'll begin with an overview of the PMI code of ethics, the rules of conduct you pledge to abide by as a project management professional. Then we'll look closely at the structure of the PMP exam, how to complete your exam application, and important tips and tricks you need to know as you prepare for the big day of the test. Finally, we'll look at how to retain your PMP certification once you've passed the exam with flying colors by explaining the continuing education and professional development requirements that must be fulfilled every three years you hold a PMP credential. By the end of this course, you'll understand how everything you've learned can be put to use in acing the PMP exam, and how you can hold onto your valuable new certification for years to come. This course and others in the series can not only help you learn more about product management and prepare for the PMP exam, but also serve as a great refresher for established project managers, and as an opportunity to earn continuing education credit. I hope you'll join me on this journey to prepare for the PMP exam and learn about earning and retaining your PMP certification here at Pluralsight.
