The PM Podcast is NOT for the Project Management Professional (PMP)® Exam
Please note that you cannot use The PM Podcast as a course to earn your 35 Contact Hours for the PMP® Exam. Here is why:
- The PM Podcast is not designed for PMP exam preparation. While some of the topics we discuss on the podcast are topics that may be beneficial for exam preparation, the podcast itself is not created as an exam study tool. It does not follow a curriculum and it is not created based upon best practices in course design. It is "just" a free podcast about project management. Albeit a very good one.
- The Project Management Institute (PMI)® requires that in order for a distance learning course to be valid for PMP exam preparation, the course must include an "end-of-course assessment". The PM Podcast does not offer such an assessment and you cannot obtain a "certificate of completion".
If you are looking for a distance-learning course to help you prepare for The PMP Exam, then we recommend The PM PrepCast. This course was developed by us and follows all PMI quality requirements for PMP Exam prep courses.
