There is a growing demand for project managers with proven credentials. Administered by the Project Management Institute, PMI®, the PMP® Certification exam is intended to provide experienced Project Management Professionals with a credential that attests to their familiarity with standardized, formal and successful project management processes. More and more companies are requiring newly hired project managers, and even their existing project management staff to obtain their PMP credential as a way of helping ensure their project management staff possesses the desired capabilities. The CAPM® Certification is designed for those individuals who have not yet attained the real world experience in project management to the level of a PMP, but do want to demonstrate their familiarity and understanding of standardized, formal and successful project management best practices and processes.
This course prepares participants to take either the PMP or CAPM Certification exam using a highly focused approach - that is, you learn what you need to know and do in order to pass the PMP or CAPM exam, rather than what you need to know and do to be an effective project manager. Here we make the same assumption for the experienced project manager as the PMP exam itself, that participants already have the required project management experience.
Those involved with the PMP/CAPM certification programs are awarded 24 PDUs - "Contact Hours" towards the requirement needed to sit for the exams. Our Global R.E.P. number is 1270.
Instructional methods for this three-day module are lecture, discussion, individual and team exercises, sample test questions, simulation and references to the PMI Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) Fifth Edition. It is recommended that all course participants read the PMBOK and apply for and receive approval from PMI to take the certification exam, prior to attending this course. Further, it is strongly recommended that participants plan to sit for the PMP or CAPM exam within 45 days of attending this workshop.
