  • PMI's Project Management Professional (PMP®) certification is the preeminent professional credential for individuals associated with project management. This course provides students with the training, the materials and the support to prepare for the challenging PMP examination.
  • This course provides participants with practical guidance on how projects are managed with processes that align with the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide), 6th Edition. You'll find out what components of your project management background will be tested so you know where to focus your attention during the vital weeks of preparation.

PMI's education requirements will be fulfilled by successfully completing the course, but the experience requirements are extensive, and can be referenced more specifically at www.pmi.org.
  • The final step in becoming a PMP is passing a multiple-choice examination designed to objectively assess and measure your project management knowledge.
