    Thanks for contacting us!!

    Here are the responses to your questions:

    1. PMI-ACP will have only online training? there will not be any classroom training?
    We have a self-paced online program. Reason- You need to prepare well for the exam. It is a journey. It is not a kind of certificate where you interact with the trainer for a few days, and you are ready for the exam. Then, what you need to pass the exam?
    – A study material to prepare as per your time and availability. Self-paced material also helps you to recollect concepts which you find, especially mock questions practice.
    – Trainer support to clarify your doubts. We have an exclusive forum which will help you getting trainer support. – You can also schedule on-demand sessions with me. So, it has everything to pass the exam, a self-paced study material, and trainer support till you get certified.

    2. If classroom available, is there any planned in Dec in Bangalore/Hyderabad?
    Seema: I hope I have your answer your question well above.

    3. How to become member of PMI? what is the procedure and if interested, you/coach will help me for the same? Is there any benefit if I am member?
    It would be great if you please share cost details.
    Seema: It’s very easy. Its simple like registration and paying for membership. After becoming member, you can download resources from PMI, and you can also save a few $ in the exam fee.

    I am looking for ICC-ACP coaching in the month of Dec in Bangalore/Hyderabad, please let me know if there is any planned classroom training for this month.

    Hi Vanita,

    Greetings!!

    Thanks for contacting us on chat.

    For your message:

    “I am intrested in PMI-ACP and I would like to know if this training will give me 21 PDU’s. I am worried only because it has self paced training and no virtual training”

    Yes, the course is approved for 21 contact hours. I understand our worry for self-paced training. We can discuss it. I have shared my number on email.

    Self-paced program does not mean there is a no connect with the trainer. You will get support from trainer whenever you need. Based on our experience, this program is best working model for any PMI exam. it is not like CSM where you interact with trainer for two days and you are ready for the exam.

    The preparation of this exam is a journey. You need to recollect concepts again and again through study material. Also trainer support should be available whenever you need. This program gives you both.

    It also takes care of flexibility need of working professionals. You can follow a goal based plan as per your timing and schedule.

    Regards,
    Seema
