Course Overview:

The Project Management Professional (PMP) exam is offered by the Project Management Institute (PMI), who have been acknowledged as pioneers in the field. Their membership represents a truly global community with more than 500,000 professionals, representing 185 countries. The PMP is the profession’s most globally recognized and respected credential.
This is an intense three-day course leading to delegates sitting the Project Management Professional exam with the PMI. This course is aimed at those wishing to gain the qualification and to understand the terminology and principles behind the methods.

Course Aim:

This course provides a comprehensive walk through of all of the PMBOK knowledge and process areas. The programme has been revised and updated in line with the PMBOK 6th edition (2017).

Course Structure:

This course will comprise two days of interactive workshops, complemented by pre-session reading and preparation. These days will be held a week apart, to ensure delegates have adequate reflection time and time to prepare in between. Delegates will have the opportunity to complete Learning Contracts after the course is complete in order to gain extra CPD credit.
