The Project Management Institute's Project Management Professional (PMP) certification is a credential that demonstrates project management experience and knowledge. This workshop will teach the participant the logistics of the examination, how to apply for it, how to prepare for it and help provide the knowledge needed to pass the exam.
This workshop is designed for professionals seeking to refresh their knowledge on the PMBOK before taking the PMP exam, as well as for those who are interested in understanding the science of Project Management and how it applies to their business. This course is relevant for experienced project managers and those who want to eventually become project managers, and very important for those who want to pass the PMP exam.
The workshop flows through the five process groups and includes the information in each of the ten Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) areas. Each PMBOK process is introduced and discussed. Interactice exercises are performed to help understand the content and retain the knowledge. Practice exam questions help the participants get an understanding of their exam readiness. Plus information that is needed for the exam, but which is not provided in the PMBOK, will be covered.
We alternate between lecture, full and small group discussions, practice questions, and accelerated learning techniques.
We recommend staying at the hotel during the workshop to help you focus on the material during the week. Exercise and dining facilities are onsite. Connecting with other participants to help informally study in the evenings is encouraged. Scheduling your exam the following week is an excellent strategy.
