Mastering Project Management with PMP® Prep

PMP Prep

This PMP course will provide you with a deeper understanding of project management concepts and applications in the workplace. At the end of this course, you will be prepared to take the Project Management Professional (PMP)® certification exam.

The goal of this PMP training class is to provide you with a detailed exploration of key project management topics and concepts, all on your own time. You’ll finish the class with intermediate- to advanced-level comprehension and be ready to sit for the exam. You’ll learn about project selection, strategy development, complex schedule modeling, forecasting, risk identification and assessment, statusing, recovery, and more. You’ll also cover project proposals, planning components, project evaluation, and discover first-hand the importance of a project manager to an organization. The material covered in this course is guaranteed to meet or exceed the educational prerequisites for PMP certification. 

Project Management Institute (PMI) recently updated the PMBOK Guide with changes to the Project Management Professional (PMP) exam and CAPM exam taking effect in the first quarter of 2018. This course currently references the PMBOK Guide – Fifth Edition and the current version of the PMP and CAPM exams. We welcome you to enroll in this current version of the course as it reflects the current version of the PMP and CAPM exams.

A course that references the PMBOK Guide – Sixth Edition and the upcoming versions of the PMP and CAPM exams will be available February 2018.
