CompTIA PK0-003 : CompTIA Project+ Certification Exam
The CompTIA Project+ Certification Exam (PK0-003) is an internationally recognized certification program for IT project managers. Unlike many other project management credentialing programs, the PK0-003 Exam has no prerequisites and does not require extensive and costly continuing education for maintaining the credential. While there are no prerequisites, there are certain recommendations for successful performance on the test, including at least one year of direct project management or project team participation experience.
The PK0-003 Exam is designed to measure the skills and abilities of IT personnel involved in all stages of the project life cycle. There are 100 questions on the exam and a passing score of 710 on a scale of 100 to 900 is required for success. The PK0-003 Exam is currently offered in three languages and 90 minutes are allotted for completion.
The PK0-003 Exam is vendor-neutral and contains sections pertinent to the entire life cycle of IT projects, including the project phases of planning, execution, support, acceptance and closure as well as project budgeting and scheduling skills required for the on-time, in-budget completion of small-, mid- and large-scale IT projects.
Other crucial subjects in the project management discipline are also covered in the PK0-003 Exam, including the role of stakeholders in project success and how to obtain stakeholder buy-in. Management of non-technical aspects of projects and understanding the larger business implications of project management processes and initiatives is also covered by the PK0-003 Exam and Certification.
