The Project Management Institute (PMI®) sponsors a Project Management Credentialing Program. The purpose and goal of this is the development, maintenance, evaluation, promotion, and administration of a rigorous education, experience and examination-based, professional certification credential of the highest calibre. It is called the Project Management Professional (PMP®).

The PMP® Credential Program supports the international community of Project Management Professionals and is designed to objectively assess and measure professional knowledge.

PREPARING FOR PMP® gives you the foundation, knowledge, techniques and tools to be fully prepared for the PMP® exam. This is a course that is based on the PMI® Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®) with hand-on exercises of project management best practice and typical exam styled questions.

The course is broken into the following areas:

  • Project Fundamentals of Project Management and the examination of project management best practice
  • Project Framework Module. The objective of this session is to introduce the main principles behind the PMI’s project management standard – The Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®) - and lay the foundations for the structure and content of the project knowledge areas.
  • Project Integration Management Module which examines the areas of project management planning as well as change management.
  • Project Scope Management Module concentrates on the development of scope and how to determine and manage the scope baseline.
  • Project Time Management Module looks at the development, optimisation and management of a timeline. Participants will get a view on estimation processes and the tools and technique that can help.
  • Project Cost Management Module is largely concerned with understanding and managing the cost baseline. Earned Value is a PMI® tool and technique that will be examined in detail.
  • Project Risk Management Module will focus on the management of information from assumptions right through to strategic response plans. Both qualitative and quantitative analysis will be presented.
  • Project Quality Management Module is about how to assure that quality is part of the project and an examination of the quality control tools and techniques.
  • Project Communication Management Module. It is often stated that 90% of project management is about communication and this section will examine how to effectively plan for communication through the acknowledgement of stakeholder responsibilities.
  • Project Procurement Management Module examines the variances of contracting and how to establish an effective contract process.
  • Project Stakeholder Management Module reviews how stakeholders should be integrated into a project and how to manage the engagement that stakeholders expect
  • These sessions cover each project management knowledge area, to provide participants with ‘a-need-to-know’ for the PMP® exam.

With each session there is a mock exam which is a paper based exam that allows participants to understand performance when answering specific exam-type questions. It also provides a guide on what areas need to be addressed prior to the exam itself.
