Investing in a Project Management Professional (PMP) certification is money you need to spend to make more money. You may notice that your salary expectations aren’t being fulfilled. Learn about your salary expectations with a PMP and whether the benefits of a PMP outweigh the cost? A budget-oriented project manager understands their personal budget as well as that of the work they’re doing. So, let’s take a minute and find out if it’s just a matter of showing you the money.  We’ll cover salary expectations with a PMP.

 

PMP Salary: Cost vs. Benefits

Going forward with PMP certification is actually a project management task in and of itself. You need to break down the risks and rewards, weigh the pros and cons, determine and budget your time and money. You’ve witnessed your peers become PMP certified, and you’ve discovered that their salaries and marketability have increased. But was it easy for them to achieve their goal? What were the costs? You have the tools so let’s break it down. Is that certification really worth it?

 

PMI Salary Survey: The Lowdown

An individual that holds a PMP certification can increase their salary by up to 32%, which in any job is an impressive raise. The Project Management Institute (PMI) regularly conducts salary surveys for the project management field to determine what the current salary trends are internationally.  Check out the latest PMI salary survey here.  The survey will give you a country by country laydown of what salary expectations with a PMP you can expect.

 

On average the PMP certification will give a newly certified project manager a 22% increase in their salary in the U.S. The United States has the second highest median salaries in the world for PMP holders. Depending on the industry, the median starting salary with a PMP certificate is $116,000 vs. $84,000 for project managers without it. Currently, Switzerland still holds the title of the highest salaries for PMP project managers, around $132,000 and Australia comes in third at roughly $101,000. Even countries such as Indonesia and the Philippines report salaries for PMP holders at 80% over those that haven’t received the certification.

 

Not only is there usually an increase in salary, over 70% of the survey participants reported at minimum an additional 5% increase in salary and benefits year over year.

 

Throughout the world, PMP certification is the standard that shows companies that candidates are ready to receive those increases with their knowledge and ethical standards.

The figures come from the PMI “Earning Power: Project Management Salary Survey”. The survey is conducted with over 30,000 project managers, in over 40 countries, and includes a variety of industries. After looking at the information in the survey, no matter where in the world you are, the pros side of your list has an entry. Which takes us to the next question, what will this cost me?

 

The Steps to Getting Your PMP

After learning about your salary expectations with a PMP, you’re ready to get that salary increase, but have you researched the cost? Do you know the steps you need to take? How close are you to achieving that goal?

 

First you need to understand the requirements to sit for the certification exam. Before you look any further you need to know how many months of project management go towards certification based on the amount of education you have and how many months you have under your belt. Then you can begin the following steps to a higher salary and better job security:

Step 1:  Earn the minimum work experience leading projects (based on your education level)

Step 2: Complete the required 35 hours of project management education required by the PMI

Step 3:  Apply through PMI to take the PMP exam

Step 4:  Study and prepare for the PMP Exam

Step 5: Take and pass the exam!

Want to complete Steps 2, 3 and 4 in the most efficient and cost effective way?   Take a quality PMP Exam Prep course.  You’ll earn the required 35 education hours and be prepared to take the exam all at the same time.  Many providers will also provide some coaching on how to complete the application process, including how to avoid getting audited.  We recommend Brain Sensei’s PMP Exam Prep courses.  Their students have a 99.6% first-try pass rate and they offer a 100% pass guarantee.  They also provide support for completing your application.

 

PMI Requirements for the PMP Certification

In order to be qualified for the PMP exam you have to complete the 35 contact hours of Project Management training. This can be achieved by taking one of many available courses. You often have the option of a PMP bootcamp, either in person, or online with a live instructor. The bootcamps usually go for four to five consecutive business days and are able to pack in the entire 35 hours in that week. There are also live virtual and in-person sessions which are more spread out (e.g. 2 nights a week for 5 weeks). These courses, in many instances, are scheduled in the evenings and on weekends so that they interfere less with your current work schedule. The least costly option is to take a self-paced on-line learning course, where you can sign in at your convenience to obtain the contact hours.

 

At minimum, the cost to complete this prerequisite for PMP certification is around $400 USD. At the top end it can cost over $2,500. You can also check with your company. Some companies provide reimbursement for the courses as well as the exam fees. They understand the benefit to them is as much as it is to you.

 

That’s the cost for the required training. The next step is deciding on which company to go with and which training to choose

 

Things to Look for in a PMP Training Course

Making the decision on which course to take requires some additional research. Here’s what we recommend you consider when looking for a quality course:

  • What’s the first-try pass rate for students?
  • Are any guarantees provided (e.g. 100% pass guarantee or money back guarantee)?
  • Does the course include a PMP exam simulator or a large number of realistic practice questions?
  • The skill, knowledge, and experience of the instructors or the quality of the material if it’s a self-paced online course.
  • Reviews from peers that have taken the course before, making sure to check the bad reviews and the good ones.
  • Is the material up-to-date and applicable to the current exam?
  • Is there support before, during, and after you take the course?
  • If you’re taking a course that isn’t self-paced, is there a penalty for being late or missing a class. Many courses won’t allow you to continue with the rest of the course if you miss one class.
  • What additional preparation does the company provide to prepare you for the exam? Are there sample tests or exam simulators that switch up the questions that may be asked?

Once you’ve decided which course is best for your schedule and which company you want to use you can decide if you want to go forward. The key is to continue weighing the costs, time, and money, versus the benefits.  Keep those salary expectations with a PMP in mind as you do.

Exam Preparation

You’re at the final part of the journey.

Depending on where you are in your career, it may have been a while since you sat for an exam, so preparation is key.

  • Make sure you have a study guide that works with you not against you. Don’t exceed your limits, take the time to make sure that you adapt the plan as you go forward.  Check out the article Choosing and Using a PMP Study Guide | Creating the Best Strategy to Pass the PMP Exam on your 1st Try!.
  • Plan-Do-Check-Act- using the PDCA cycle to get ready allows you tohttps://www.google.com/url?q=https://brainsensei.com/choosing-and-using-a-pmp-study-guide-creating-the-best-strategy-to-pass-the-pmp-exam-on-your-1st-try/&sa=D&source=editors&ust=1655929536657942&usg=AOvVaw3HR9eOuQrtVm_WzLmS2XIy see what areas you need to work on. Read the PMBOK, take sample tests, and assess yourself. If necessary, adjust your preparation to ensure you are absorbing the information you need.  A good prep course will help you do this.
  • Have questions as you study or about the application process, ask your course provider for help! They should have support to help you if you are stuck.
  • Generate reminders, outlines, bullet points, whatever helps you to review quickly as the time towards the exam gets closer.
  • Remember, this is not Just about a new salary. This is about becoming an ethical, knowledgeable, creative, thinker that deserves to be counted among the best.

Make a checklist of all the items you need to proceed.

What Are The Next Steps?

You’ve made the decision, chosen your PMP exam prep course provider, and taken the course, you are ready to go forward.

  • Organize and document your project management experience.
  • Visit the PMI website and apply by filling in the information required, including your contact hour program completion certificate.
  • If you can, ask someone who has had experience with the PMP application to review it for you (or ask your course provider for tips).
  • Then submit the application. There is a fee for the examination, $405 for PMI members and $555 for non-members.

The Exam

You’ve followed your checklist. You have your ID cards. You are good to go. You’ve got this. After the 3 – 5 years of experience, the 35 hours of project management education, the hours of preparation, you know what’s on the exam and you are ready.

You sit through the exam, you submit it and wait for the swirling circle until you see “CONGRATULATIONS” and voila, PMP success!

 

The work isn’t done. To keep that PMP certificate and continue increasing your salary, every three years you will need to submit Professional Development Units (PDUs) to PMI for your certificate renewal. There are a number of relatively easy ways to do this.  Try not to leave it to the last minute.

I think the course is good. I wouldn't mind a few more videos and audible in the trainings. I do a lot do reading. I bought the PMBOK book on the side and sometimes have trouble connect the class to the PMBOK book. I do enjoy your format. I am learning. Personally I need buckle down and spend more time on it.

Brain Sensei helped me to prepare for and pass the PMP exam on the first try. I used many exam simulators and this one was by far the most similar to the exam. Im so happy I found Brain Sensei and chose to prepare with them!

I am a refugee from Ukraine. I applied to Brain Sensei with a request to provide me with a scholarship so that I could prove my skills and abilities for Europe where I am now due to the invasion of my country. The Brain Sensei team promptly responded to my request and provided the opportunity to study in their PMP course. I am very grateful to the Brain Sensei team and am happy to start learning! Thank you very much!

I really enjoyed the Brain Sensei self learning course as well as the virtual course with the instructor. I was able to pass the PMP with above target ratings for every section. I am so pleased with how easy and efficient the courses were to navigate, and how simply the PMI approach was placed into every day situations. I would highly recommend this course to everyone wanting to either freshen up on their Project skills or to master the PMP.

Hi Folks, good course there. More info/exercises on EV and formulas would be really helpful. Thank you very much.

- Vasil

I passed my test on the first try! Excellent learning tool. There were some questions that I found to be confusing or contradictory with the answers, so I sent those to the Brain Sensei team. They always responded quickly, even on the weekend! Some adjustments are being made because of my feedback. I appreciate their care and that they take the time to support during the studying period.

- Pamla Kendrick

Perfect program for me. I did it at my own pace, and passed the exam with flying colors.

- Mary Garnett

---

I'm very satisfied with the Brain Sensei PMP Exam Preparation Course. All 8 Modules are very well structured and detailed. This course is best for those who would like to learn at their own pace. Of course, lots of studying is needed (PMBOOK and other agile-related books and material). The customer service team is exceptional, very supportive. I had an immediate response to whatever I needed.

- PS

This is a great course!!!!

- Darrius Cooley

Great training tool! I learned a lot and realized how much training I needed to learn. Now to take my exam!

- Michelle

Engaging, self-pacing course that contains accurate content. Prepared me well for the PMP exam which I passed on my first attempt. This course is best for those who would like to learn at their own pace. For example, I completed it over the span of 2 and a half months.

The course was thorough and the practice exams enhanced my learning. However, I am having a hard time receiving my PDU credit for taking the course.

I loved the PMP prep course and the level of learning from this. I am hoping this learning to be translated in PMP certification as well :) Another thing to mention is the very responsive support and quickest issue resolution. I had an issue with subscription expiry and they resolved it very swiftly. Thanks!

- Kamal

phenomenal training opportunity that provides a variety of learning styles for all.

Great way to prepare for the PMP Exam!

- Matthew

Excellent test prep for the exam, though some more practice tests on agile would be beneficial

- eric

---

It is often hard to figure out what the right answer was on a quiz or practice exam. Frequently, the correct answer is buried in a lot of text about what options are wrong.

- James

---

The content was spot on and I am much more confident in understanding the processes and how everything works together now. (The) course is great; however, the customer service team is Exceptional! Very responsive and thorough, and at all times; and when I had some technical difficulties (or questions) they stuck with me through resolution. Highly recommended program and company.

The Course documents should remain open for longer than 6 months, given that PMI gives you 365 days to prepare for exam. Also, the option to extend visibility for the course documents, costs almost a 5th of the course, but opens up the docs for just 30 more days. Propose to extend this to 90 days at the very least.

- Vasily

---

I'm very satisfied with the Brain Sensei PMP Exam Preparation Course. All 8 Modules are very well structured and detailed. I believe that practice exams included in the course helped me a lot with the preparation for my PMP Exam. I appreciate Brain Sensei for their amazing course and for the awesome service. They responded to all my requests immediately. Thanks. Highly recommended.

- Helen Borimsky

---

The format of the prep-course is great overall and a great alternative to reading the PMBOK. Barring a few minor glitches here and there, the flow of information ensures that concepts are well understood not only from the point of examination but to the point of application in day to day professional activities. Explanations provided in the answers of prep exams (apart from the 1st one) are also a key to understanding the thought process to be applied. With the focus being on Agile approaches from 2021, the information in the course seemed adequate to cover the concepts. All the Best to all aspirants.

Studied BrainSensei for 11 days and passed. Succinct and highly informational chapters. The 4 practice exams are marginally more difficult then the PMP. Borderline impossible to fail the PMP if you pass this course.

Great course! They break down all concepts in a very clear and interactive way, that doesn't put you to sleep. Would recommend to anyone who is looking to pass the PMP exam with flying colors.

Your course, quizzes at the end of most modules and practice exams truly challenged me. I definitely derived the value and knowledge I was looking for in preparation for taking the PMP Certification Test. In particular, I appreciated the explanations that popped-up in the tests after an answer was submitted - very educational and helpful to my learning/understanding the material and concepts better. Some areas that could be improved (and some of this is nit-picking) include: * Some of the grammar and overall sentence structures, particularly in the latest set of practice exams, needs to be cleaned-up. Some were missing 'of', 'for, or had an extra 'an' in the narrative - got confusing at times. * In the practice exams, I'd like to see shorter sentences rather than the flurry of 'and' and 'or' conjunctions that made reading the sentences go on forever (had to read them multiple times to truly understand their meaning). That said, I enjoyed the overall online course taking experience and thank you for accommodating my requested time extensions. Best regards, Scott Conn

Liked it. Need access for longer though.

- Jerome

What I like best about Brain Sensei is the interactive nature of the course. I think this material would be numbing if delivered as simple lectures with slides. This method is an improvement on that. On the other hand, an in-person course, while more expensive, would likely be even more useful if you have the funds and the time. I haven't taken the PMP exam yet, so I can't comment on how useful the practice tests are.

- James

---

Great

- Yennyfer

The Brain Sensei PMP program is a wonderful program that condenses the PMBOK into digestible and retainable bites leveraging the power of story telling. If you're looking for a program that will get you your credit hours but also help establish a foundation of PMI knowledge this is the program for you!

- Kenny Dalen

Passed first attempt

- Lee

---

Truly the best course in town if you wish to pass the PMP exam on the first try. I love the idea of playing the role of the samurai and practice your project management skill in her shoes. And not to forget, the generous amount of practice exam gave me just the right dose of confidence before taking the real one. Highly recommended

- Minh Vo

---

The course was great, though I found a lot of parts hard to comprehend. I feel a lot more prepared and better skilled to manage projects in my career. Thanks, Brain Sensei.

- Jill Finkelstein

The BrainSensei PMP preparation course provided me with all the material required to be ready for the exam. It is well structured, explains the concepts clearly, and most importantly, provides ample training questions through the four mock exams and assessment questions at the end of each module. I passed the exam with Above Target in all sections on the first attempt.

- Gael Riethmuller

---

Overall I really liked this learning course. It was very helpful and allowed me to be well prepared for the exam. The 2nd and 3rd practice exam are great to give you real example questions and help prepare you for what to expect. BrainSensei's customer service was the best. I had to delay taking my test due to COVID and they extended my membership for free. They went above and beyond my expectation which was great. Only changes I would recommend is to add 1 or 2 more practice exams like the 2nd and 3rd exam and get rid of the agile practice exam. This is not a real focus of the test and therefore is not really applicable in my opinion.

- Ronnie

---

BrainSensei developed a great learning method to prepare for the PMP certification exam. Their customer service is always very professional, fast, spot on and dedicated to your success. I recommend them.

- G. Buchs

---

I've sent several emails to BrainSensei (one of them not so nice, but the rest were okay) and the team has always been so polite in answering the questions. I'm a very straight-forward person and don't like the PMI-ism type questions because they seem like 'gotchas' or traps, and this is not how I manage my team. I took the Master of Project course (which was garbage) then failed the PMP exam. Throughout the PMP exam I felt so out of touch. Even with the first practice exam on BrainSensei I felt out of place, but I am not getting the hang of things. I hope to pass the exam on the second attempt! The brain sensei experience has been *miles* ahead of the Master of Project garbage. Brain Sensei should be proud of both their product and of their team! I love getting replies to my concerns so quickly. Nice work :) !!!

I have studied with other programs and I didn’t feel prepared. After a short time with Brain Sensei, I had the confidence to succeed on exam day, which I did on the first try after studying with Brain Sensei. It was worth every penny.

Great program

- Ashley

Course is made for people who are already grounded in the material, not for someone that needs all the basics. Was budget friendly and OK content.

Need improvement in presenting more relevant real exam type questions. The practice exams are too simple and easy and do not prepare you for the real exam. Otherwise, good concept presenting material

- Amir

---

The prep materials provided plenty of content which prepared me well for the PMP exam. The questions were packed with information.

- Cameron

Teaches the PMP in a solid manner, some things you need to know as a potential consumer: -The Samurai backstory is extremely short, and didn’t really assist me with recall in any in-depth way. It only gave broad brush-strokes as to what each phase entailed. -MOST of what was on the test was covered in the lessons, however if I had zero real prior PM knowledge prior to the test, I would have failed. -The first practice test forces you, as the student to actually read into the PMBOK, which was a benefit in the long run as it assisted me with quickly referencing what I needed to find. -The course will likely cover wave tops and subjects, forcing me to self-study for a week before my test... not a bad deal all things considered. -Brain Sensei’s course has incorporated Agile into one of their practice tests, and this test IS mandatory. This may seem strange, and I didn’t get a satisfactory reason why I needed to take a purely Agile test when I only wanted to take the PMP, for anyone else in this scenario, this is the reason: In June, PMI is revamping the PMP test to include Agile as a significant portion of the PMP. Brain Sensei is just ahead of the curve trying to get students prepared... fret not. Their customer service is extremely responsive and does take care of their members. My program had a couple bugs, and the customer service fixed my problems within 24 hours. All in all... it was absolutely worth the money for me.

- Kevin

I am very impressed with this learning system. The content is laid out in a way that will make any learner understand all the process groups and ITTOs in order to understand Project management and be equipped to excel in the test. The learning system is engaging and fun at the same time. It's very different than other learning material which is composed mostly of videos. Some improvements are needed, but in my opinion Brain Sensei is great value for money

- said durra

At first, I was attracted to Brain Sensei training for their original learning program using a Samurai's story. And indeed it made the whole learning experience funnier - so easier. I felt like the Samurai. Then, I was amazed by The Brain Sensei Team's reactivity and help when I reached out through contact@brainsensei.com Their support was constantly reliable and efficient. I appreciated their professionalism and didn't feel on my own. At last, the course and the practice exams proved to be efficient since I passed the PMP exam - with 'Above Targe't in all Domains. So thank you so much Brain Sensei Team !! Charlene

- Charlene LU

Overall very good. Got stuck a few times trying to find resources which I should have downloaded the before starting the program. Customer service has been great.

- Jonathan Williams

SO far I am thoroughly enjoying the Brain Sensei PMP prep course. I have taken a Project management class as a part of my degree which I recently completed and project management has always interested me. I find the course to be educational and easy to follow. I am grateful that this course has been designed in such a way that is simple to understand all of the complexities in project management and that allows me to study at my own pace.

The content is good and easy to understand

This review is based on completing all course work through module 102. The story and interactive nature of the course are helpful for learning and relating the material. It would be nice to have the page numbers to the PMBOK guide where references are made to it. Other information that will be helpful, are the explanations to the practice questions at the end of each module. These are provided only after immediately answering the questions. Having these available in the score summary from the 'history' tab will be helpful to refresh why the answer is correct and other options are not.

- Rohan Punit

Overall I would rate this course an 8/10. I liked how there were exams towards the end of every module and I felt that it was very useful having it laid out in different scenarios. I rate it only an 8/10 as I had some glitch/software issues and lost my progress resulting in me having to re-do modules/exams multiple times. All in all, that was maybe useful in the end as it was a way for me study or 're-learn' the course material. Thank you!

- Nikki Cordy

---

Clear and precise explanations of how things work. I was never lost navigating the course.

- Gary Nicol

A smart approach to present the information which makes it fun and engaging while at the same time preparing for the PMP exam. Brain Sensei differentiates itself from other PMP exam preps in that it delivers the knowledge through the use of storytelling technique. I recommend this course because it will help you pass your PMP exam on the first try.

- Jamal

---

Loved the story telling and the practice exams. I felt very prepared when the actual exam came around.

- Josh

---

One of a kind training that was truly engaging!

- Claire

---

Excellent course for preparing for the PMP exam in a fun and engaging way! The practice questions resemble the actual questions on the exam making it a completely worthwhile experience.

- Rossetta

---

I passed the PMP exam after taking Brain Sensei's Online PMP Certification Exam Prep. The practice exam questions were so similar to the questions that appeared on the exam. On exam day, when I sat down to take the test and started running through the questions I felt so relieved! The practice exams are also timed so you get more comfortable with the exam experience and feel better prepared when you sit down to take the test. The other differentiator was the video content throughout the modules. The concepts are taught through a story of a young samurai defending her kingdom. This will probably be the only PMP prep course where you can learn all the knowledge areas and feudal Japan at the same time. I'd recommend this course not just because of the videos but because it helped me pass my exam on the first try.

- Jackie

Good course, but a few grammatical errors with how some questions were worded.

It was good!

Loved the unique approach and it still had all the info I'd expect from a full PMP exam prep course. Very responsive on questions too.
