Hi,
I visited your website last year and planned to start the video course (the package with exam simulator). But i cannot find that anymore.
Is that not available anymore?
I only find the new live classroom which is too expensive for me and it is difficult for me to find a whole week time for this.
Thank!
Jisheng

Unfortunately, PMI's guidance says that the official training can only be taught live, so the video course is no longer available.

Jisheng:

It's my understanding that PMI now requires (mandates) live training for preparatory courses. This is beyond guidance - it is a requirement that was thrust upon course providers. The change was announced quite some time ago on the PrepCast, Forums and at PMI. PMI's decision will indeed lock out candidates seeking certification, but certifying organizations occasionally change their rules and candidates need to keep informed regarding certification requirements.

I do not necessarily agree with PMI's decision, but it is one that we all have to live with.

Does anyone know about the self study that PMI offers for USD $700?

I saw an early, beta-version of the PMI course back in April of 2020. It was... how to say this delicately... not up to my quality standards. I do not know if it has been improved.

I was on live chat with PMI today. They no longer offer their self study course. I suppose they received the same feedback and took it offline.

I just checked on the PMI site and their prep course IS STILL AVAILABLE. I am currently at the point where I am ready to hit enter and pay the $700. I am also reviewing other online courses that are still available. Just wondering if this thread was created because you do not have your new version ready yet?

This is incorrect. PMI is still offering their course. I just signed up for it.
