I have attended a class room training from a REP two years back and some how I was not able to prepare for the exam and I didn't register with PMI either. Now I want to attend the exam and going to register. the training I attended two years back is eligible for 35 contact hours for now or do i need to get training again? Appreciate your feedback.

Thanks PP

You're fine, as long as you have some proof that you attended that course.

The time of education doesn't matter (even college courses about project management comply). The PMP handbook clearly states

Record all education hours regardless of when they were accrued.

Good luck


Short answer - you do not need another training to fulfil 35 hour contact requirement.

35 contact hours do not expire. For more details, you can read this article - http://www.pmbypm.com/pmp-pdu-validity/

However, attending another training has many advantages. The main advantage is that you get access to latest exam material. You should read the following article to understand all the advantages.
