Below are the certifications offered by PMI institute. We will talk about PMI-ACP here.
Project Scheduling refers to curating timeframes for the entire project. Since the organizations today are extremely complex in their structure, it takes detailed management skills to design a schedule for everyone involved in the projects. Most of the time, the firms are unable to complete the projects on time and this is solely because of inappropriate scheduling and this is where a PMI Scheduling Professional (PMI-SP) steps in to perform the job efficiently.
PMI-SP credential is exclusively for professionals who do not want to restrict themselves to software and rather look out for holistic growth in terms of project management. A practitioner working towards formulating and maintaining project schedules and wants to be recognized for the work with the appropriate knowledge should get this certification.
The overall cost for the certification depends upon the PMI membership status of the candidate. Moreover, it is also dependent upon whether it is a center-based test or a paper-based test.
Center-Based Testing (CBT)/ Paper-Based Testing (PBT)
US$520.0 (Member) | US$670.0 (Non-member)
Similar to other PMI certifications, PMI-RMP certification is also valid for exactly three years from the date of the certification. For instance, Paul got his certification on 10 July 2018, then it will be valid until 10 July 2021. However, the credential can be renewed by accruing 30 Professional Development Units (PDU) in specific topics of Project Scheduling.
A total of 200-400 hours is required to prepare for a PMI-SP examination using multiple study aids.
