STUDY APPROACH
 

We will spend approximately one hour per each of the ten knowledge areas, and the code of ethics (review + exam questions).  The rest of the time will be spent on review of the PMP framework and exam facts, perspective, and approach.  Practice exam questions are used to test proficiency in each area.

 

You will receive a course manual, which includes sections on all chapters of the PMBOK® Guide, professional responsibility, exam information, and practice questions.

WHY PMP CERTIFICATION?

 

One-fifth of the world’s GDP, or $12 trillion, is spent on projects. And with many skilled practitioners leaving or scheduled to leave the workforce due to retirement – in the United States alone, 40% of the workforce by 2015 – there is a great demand for knowledgeable project managers. So much so that $4.5 million of that total is at risk, and the talent gap is widening. When these opportunities arise, certification helps make sure that you’ll be ready. There are already more than 500,000 PMP credential holders around the world and in every industry, from healthcare, tele-communications and finance to IT and construction.

 

According to a 2007 PricewaterhouseCoopers survey, 80% of high-performing projects use a credentialed project manager. Make sure you’re one of them by earning a PMP certification.
