Your access to The PM PrepCast is not forever. Please read the Terms and Conditions for all the details before you make a purchase. Here are some highlights:
- Purchase of The PM PrepCast does not grant you a perpetual ("continuous" or "indefinite") license to the product. You are buying a license to access the current version of the product, which you may use to prepare for the current exam.
- The PM PrepCast will become immediately outdated and obsolete once PMI implements an exam update. We are a PMI Registered Education Provider and at the time of such an exam update we are required to remove outdated training materials.
- Your purchase grants you access to The PM PrepCast until you pass your PMI exam, provided this occurs before PMI makes an exam update. The next such update is expected in July 2017. We will close your account when PMI updates the exam and you will no longer be able to access The PM PrepCast. No exceptions.
- Customers who purchase The PM PrepCast within 180 days of a PMI exam update receive a free or discounted upgrade. All others must purchase the new version.
Please remember that the above are just informational highlights. Please read the Terms and Conditions where all the details are explained before you purchase.
