Project Management Professional (PMP)® Examination Preparation Course

PMP Course

PMP Exam Update


Course Overview:

The primary aim of this course is to enable eligible project management practitioners to pass the Project Management Professional (PMP)® examination by exposing them, in a structured manner, to relevant information about the nature and typical content of the PMP® exam. We embed long-term memory by having candidates apply key project management processes in accordance with the Project Management Institute's (PMI)®’s standards as expressed in the PMBOK® Guide. This courses also ensures that candidates acquire the 35 hours of formal project management training as required for eligibility for the PMP® exam.

Course Format:

The course is designed to form part of the candidate’s preparations for the PMP® exam. As such it is facilitative, rather than instructive, requiring the candidate to do pre-reading for each session. Each session involves a test of 60 PMP® exam type questions, which each candidate is required to complete in class, followed by a facilitated session involving a discussion and explanation of the correct answers along with the pointing out of pitfalls to be expected during the exam proper. Each session is concluded with a small group assignment on key topics, the intention being the embedding of long term memory through practical application.
