With over a million Project Management Professionals worldwide, the Project Management Institute’s certification program is now a standard across all industries. Becoming a certified Project Management Professional (PMP)® involves meeting certain education and experience requirements, and passing a 200-question exam. (PMP certification handbook from PMI)

 

The key to passing the exam is to understand the Project Management Institute’s (PMI) view of project management.  This means reviewing and understanding PMI’s Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide), but also becoming familiar with how PMI expects project managers to apply that knowledge.  In most cases, this requires PMP-candidates to become familiar with new concepts during their PMP exam preparation, and/or to “unlearn” practices that they have picked up over the years.

 

This course provides a solid PMP prep foundation – we present and explain all the concepts you need to know.  While other PMP training courses focus on last-minute cramming to prepare you for the exam, we assume you actually want to learn something from your PMP education.  No pre-reading is required before taking our course, but you should be prepared to study the materials we provide – it’s a closed book exam.

 

Who should take this PMP Certification Prep course?

 

Course participants should be familiar with the certification process, and meet the PMP experience requirements prior to attending.  You should also be reasonably familiar with modern project management techniques, as advocated by PMI, and be planning on sitting for the exam within a couple of months of completing this course.

The course is offered on an open-enrollment basis at our Project Management Education Center in Bellevue/Kirkland, WA, (which also serves Seattle, Olympia, Redmond, Renton, Everett, and Tacoma), as well as at our Project Management Education Center in Tucson, AZ (which also serves the Greater Phoenix area, Oro Valley, and Sierra Vista / Fort Huachuca), and other select locations such as Grand Cayman.  We also provide it on an on-site basis anywhere in the world, and online using live instructors.
