Hi, to be eligible for PMP examination you need to have 4500 hours of experience in assisting or managing a project (if you hold a bachelors degree) OR 7500 hours of experience in ssisting or managing a project (if you hold a diploma). In addition to this, you need to have 35 hours of formal PMP education. To know more about how you can gain these 35 contact hours, please read PMI PMP handbook http://www.pmi.org/Certification/~/media/PDF/Certifications/pdc_pmphandbook.ashx
thoroughly. One way that I am aware of is through a Registered Education Provider (REP). I know this one REP called Simplilearn (http://www.simplilearn.com
). I took my ITIL Foundation training from them and currently I am preparing for Intermediate level. You can probably visit their website or contact them to furnish further details.
I read an article on internet stating PMP is one of the highest paying certifications. So, I feel that this will a right choice if you want to make a career in project management and if you fulfil the eligibility criteria. Best of luck!
