Are you referring to PMP from PMI (Project Management Institute)?
Lately I also thinking to get the certification but I don't know is it available in Singapore or not. Last time when I was graduted frommy MEM course in Australia, my academic councellor push me to take PMP certification. But I gave it a miss since I don't have enough time (Student Visa almost expired) and money.
If you have information please share it with me.
Also, i'm not sure who will verify the PM-related hours that is needed to be clocked. I can't anyhow say i've done all the hours right?

In IT line, there are 2 ways to be Certified PM.
1. Join Singapore Conmputer Society PM course (can get subsidy if you pass) to be a SCS Certified PM after you work 2 years I think. The work experience requirement is very taugh. Sound like you have to work certain years (may be 2). The course is conducted by ISS in NUS. Duration is half a year and 2 lesson per week and 3 hours each lesson. Now they offer the course through Web based also. Forgot the website but you can go to SCS website to check or go to ISS website.
After that you can go for the PMI's PMP certification. Level 2, like computer game.
2. Another way is to get the PMI's PM certification directly. You can sit for the exam in Singapore. PMI doesn't offer the training course, they only offer the exam. After you pass, you have to submit a report to show them you the relevant working experience in PMgm. There are private institution in Singapore that offer a few weeks training course and they will help you to wirte the Experince Report also. BTW, SCS PM course follow the same curriculum of PMI also.
Hope that help, if you need more info let me know. I know of one institution that offer the short courses for point 2 but the subsidy from govt is lesser.
