- Are seeking to become certified professional project managers
- Might or might not have received formal project management training.
The course enables candidates to develop professionally, increase their project management skills, apply a formalized and standards-based approach to project management, and seek career advancement by moving into a formal project manager job role, as well as to apply for the Project Management Professional (PMP)® certification.
This course is taught by expert project management practitioners, with many years of experience in teaching project management and a proven track record in PMP Exam preparation. Based on this accumulated experience, the material mandated by PMI has been enriched with additional activities and exercises, to enhance the learning experience and further reinforce the tools and skills presented.
WHAT CAN A PMP® CREDENTIAL DO FOR YOU?
Globally recognized and demanded, the PMP® certification demonstrates to employers, clients, and colleagues that a project manager possesses project management knowledge, experience, and skills to bring projects to successful completion.
As the demand for skilled project managers is at a critically urgent level, practitioners who hold the PMP certification are well-positioned to provide the professional skills necessary to lead project teams and achieve successful project results.
The PMP certification recognizes the competence of an individual to perform in the role of a project manager, specifically experience in leading and directing projects. Year after year, the PMP certification has garnered global recognition and commanded a higher salary for certified individuals over non-certified individuals. PMP certification holders report earning up to 25% more than non-certified project professionals.
