Help! Missing Just One PMI Contact Hour


Question: PMI contact hour


I am missing one PMI contact hour needed for PMP certification.  Where can I get my last contact hour?


Answer: PMI contact hour


Track down your local PMI chapter chapter and attend an event that includes at least a 1 hour presentation. (i.e. not just a networking event.) This can count as your 1 remaining contact hour. Make sure that your attendance is recorded, and keep a copy of all handouts, presentation outlines etc.


Bonus Question: What is a Contact Hour for the PMP certification application process?


One hour of classroom instruction equals one contact hour. If you have completed a university or college course on project management that met for three hours per week for 15 weeks, you would record 45 contact hours. If only a portion of a course dealt with project management, only the hours spent on project management can be applied toward the total.  The course work must be completed at the time you submit the application.
