Course Objectives

The purpose of our 17-Week PMP® Prep Course is to provide an extensive review of the PMBOK® Guide, 6th Edition. This course includes a wide variety of learning activities, tools, and study aids, all using relevant PMBOK® Guide terminology.

The course is designed as if you were performing a project. Our classes and learning modules are built around the five project management processes – initiating, planning, executing, monitoring and controlling, and closing.

Our course is based on the belief that a PMP® credential should mean more than passing an exam. The PMP® credential should also mean you have “real world” knowledge about project management that you can apply in your projects.

The key to successfully completing the 17-Week PMP® Prep Course is preparation, commitment, and follow-through. You will be led through an extensive review of the PMBOK® Guide, 6th Edition, focused on:

  • Reviewing the concepts and terminology of project management processes
  • Providing an explanation of tools & techniques described in the PMBOK® Guide
  • Helping you apply this knowledge to your projects in the real world
  • Identifying your strengths and weaknesses to provide you confidence to successfully pass the PMP® Exam
