This course is specifically designed to assist students in preparing for the Project Management Professional (PMP)® exam, given by the Project Management Institute (PMI)®.
A powerful mix of a highly personalized five-day session combined with a complete on-demand course allows students focused time to learn and review the concepts and terms necessary to pass the PMP® exam. Included with the class are tips, tricks, exercises and targeted materials that will assist the student in reviewing for and passing the exam. A complete PMP® exam simulation at the end of the course helps students determine if they are ready to take the official exam, and gives them insight into specific areas they will need to study in order to succeed. Your Trainer will provide you with an Individualized Study Plan with step-by-step instructions for preparing for and taking the exam, along with a recommended target date based on the results of your exam simulation.
This course will also prepare students for the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)® exam, which requires no experience and fewer hours of education for certification.
