Objectives of the PMP course

The course to the PMP® certification has two main objectives:

  • To learn about good Project Management practices based on the 6th edition PMBOK® Guide
  • To prepare participants to take and pass the PMP® Certification Exam.

Our facilitators have trained over 1000 Project Managers in the last 10 years, and based on 100% of students who reported they took the exam within the last year, we have an impressive record of a pass rate in excess of 97%.

Content of the PMP course

Contrary to most PMP® certification courses, ProPM-P© is structured logically by project phase, which makes it easy to follow, easy to apply to real-life project management, and useful as a guideline to managing projects.

The areas covered are all 5 Process Groups (Initiate, Plan, Execute, Control and Close) as well as the 10 Knowledge Areas (Communication, Time, Cost, Scope, Integration, Human Resources, Risk, Quality, Procurement, Stakeholder Management) and Professional Responsibility.

ProPM-P© provides you with the 35 contact hours necessary to sit the PMP® exam, and you will receive a certificate of attendance at the end of the course.

Method of our PMP course

ProPM-P© uses a blended learning approach: a well-balanced mix of classroom training and self-study using probably one of the best web-based tools for the exam preparation.

The facilitators have a broad experience as Project Managers of large Projects – their goal is to give you all the hints and tips you will need to be sure to pass the exam! They will be available to support you by email for any questions for 30 days after the course.

The course is based on the PM Body of Knowledge Guide – SIXTH Edition (the PMBOK® Guide - the official PMI® guide to Project Management, and the basis for all Certification questions), and also includes all supplementary information needed to pass the exam.
