Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What do I need to do to complete the courses?

  A:   Study at your own pace.  When you are ready, there is a short (maximum 20 questions) online multiple choice quiz you take to pass the course and obtain your certificate.   A passing score on the quiz is 68%, and you can take the quiz as many times as necessary to obtain a passing score at no extra charge. The quizzes are not timed.

Q: Are your PDU courses updated for the new Project Management Institute (PMI)® CCR and PMI Talent Triangle requirements?

Yes they are.  All our PDU courses are pre-approved by the PMI and meet the new PMI CCR and PMI Talent Triangle requirements.  You can view the amount of PDUS in each Talent Triangle category per course by viewing the description for each course.

Q:  I see course access is 90 days, does that mean that I have to take all 90 days to complete the course?

A:  No, you can complete the course as soon as you like, you progress through the courses at your own pace.

Q:  What guarantee do you offer with your PMP and CAPM Exam Prep Courses?

A:  We fully stand behind our exam prep courses.  If you do not pass the PMP or CAPM exam on your first attempt after completing the course, simply email a scanned copy of your test results and your PM Educate course completion certificate  for reimbursement of your PM Educate course cost.  Note that completing the course requires passing all practice exams within the course.  Upon refund, all course access will be terminated immediately.  Alternatively, you may select the following course offer:  PM Educate will provide one full year of access to the PMP Exam Preparation course or CAPM Exam Preparation course AND free PM Educate courses of your choice totaling 60 PDUs for use after you obtain your PMP certification (a $1000 value!).   You must take the PMP or CAPM exam within 45 days of the date on your original PM Educate course completion certificate to qualify for reimbursement or free courses.  Include your name, full mailing address and your preference (reimbursement or free course access).   Any requests for reimbursement or free courses MUST be sent within 5 business days of completing the PMP or CAPM Exam.  You will receive a confirmation email acknowledging receipt of your request for your records.

Q:  I found a similar PDU course offer, why should I buy from PM Educate?

A:  Check through the competing offer carefully.  Does the competitor offer live phone support for online courses?  We are available by phone as well as email for any questions or issues.  Does the competitor require completing many separate exams to obtain the PDUs?  Each of our courses only requires completing one multiple choice quiz to demonstrate learning.
