16. What is the meaning of 24X7 access? What is the maximum in accessible time expected in a 24X7 service?

Normally, in any online study with international accessibility for 3 calendar months and considering various uncontrollable factors (like ISP/local server/shared server/local ISP/migration to higher platform, etc.) which are NOT in the hands of service provider (i.e IIPM®), if the inaccessible time is less than 2 continuous days (48-hrs), it is generally acceptable.

Please contact onlinestudy@iipmchennai.com only in case of 48-hrs of continuous non availability of access to online resources which may be due to problems at ISP/local server/shared server/local ISP/migration to higher platform.

However, any continuous inaccessibility period more than 48-hrs will be compensated with equivalent days of extension period in the access time.

18. Can we get the 35 hours mandatory certificate by taking up the online PMP® course?

Yes. You can get your 35 hour PM education cert from IIPM® once complete 35 hours of study or combination of some study hours and some test hours totaling to 35 hours. Test hours are given just to emphasize the point for testing. Even after 35 hour cert, you can use your balance access hours for taking tests to reinforce your learning.

19. I want to take your PMP® online course, but I can’t spend 3 hours a day for 10 days – I can spend about an hour. Is this OK if I take a month to complete 35 study hours? Please note, I plan to take the PMP® exam after 3 months.

You can read at your own pace. We just suggest for those who are in a hurry to submit their application quickly to PMI® to get eligibility letter from PMI®, to complete the 35 hours quickly to get our mandatory education cert and then you can read leisurely at your pace for 3 months. If you are not in a hurry to get eligibility letter from PMI®, you can complete 35 hours in a month’s time and use balance 2 months to complete in-depth study, tests, etc. If you plan to take the exam after 3 months, your plan to complete 35 hours in one month from now is perfectly all right.


20. Can I take your online Six Sigma course without completing/taking PMP®? Is there any dependency of these two?

Yes as well as No. If you take Six sigma course before becoming PMP®, you will get only Six sigma Green Belt certificate. No PDUs will be awarded. If you take 6sigma course, you will get both Greenbelt cert and 40 PDUs cert. PMPs have to earn 60 PDUs in 3 years time to retain PMP® status. That is the only difference.
