Based on the PMBOK® Guide, 5th Edition
This workshop has a simple goal-to prepare participants to successfully pass the Project Management Professional (PMP®) certification exam. It's for those who are looking for a very rapid infusion of information targeted toward increasing their ability and the probability that they will pass the exam. It does not meet the requirements for the 35 hours of contact education required for registering for the PMP® exam and presumes that participants have taken other project management courses that fill that requirement. This workshop does provide 14 hours of contact education.
Some participants may use this workshop as the beginning of their preparation and may plan to take the examination at some point in the future. Others will use this workshop as a capstone experience and take the examination soon after the workshop. (Some training providers have an audit policy that may allow you to do both.)
This workshop principally focuses on the materials included in the PMBOK® Guide, Fifth Edition, which is the principal source of questions on the PMP® exam. It also includes materials from "other authoritative sources" of project management literature, which are also tested on the exam.
Because this workshop is intended to prepare you to successfully take the exam, the flow of the course is directed toward that end. On the last day of class, a 100-question practice exam will be administered to test your readiness to take the exam. Those questions are similar in difficulty to PMP® exam questions. You are not required to share your results on sample exam or achieve a particular score in order to get "credit" for this workshop. The test is there to help you learn and assess your progress.
This workshop is organized around the various types of PMP® exam questions and provides guidance for them. In general, this workshop positions you to answer what we regard to be the four types of PMP® exam questions.
Anyone who has at least three years of experience working in a project-oriented environment, and who has already completed a rigorous certificate or self-study program and wants a compressed, targeted approach toward preparing for the PMP® exam.
