Project Management Professional Exam Prep
Click Here to see the schedule.
A direct result of the need to properly apply project management is the growing demand for project managers with proven credentials. Administered by the Project Management Institute, PMI®, the PMP® Certification exam is intended to provide Project Management Professionals with a credential that attests to their familiarity with standardized, formal and successful project management processes. More and more companies are requiring newly hired project managers, and even their existing project management staff to obtain their PMP certification, as a way of helping ensure their project management staff has these desired capabilities.
This course prepares participants for taking the PMP Certification exam via a focused approach on what you need to know and do in order to pass the PMP exam, rather than what you need to know and do to be an effective project manager. Once completed, those involved with the PMP program are awarded 14 PDUs or 14 training hours, towards the 35 “contact” hours needed to sit for the examination.
