Professional Development

Our focused PMP® Exam Preparation Course provides you with everything you need to set yourself up for first-time success with the PMP® Exam.

If you are looking for a very focused, streamlined approach for achieving your PMP Certification, our 5-day exam preparation course is the perfect solution. This course runs as a live virtual classroom training. That means you gain all the benefits of classroom training by connecting online from wherever you’re located.

Our PMP Exam Preparation Course is fully aligned with the new PMI® Exam Content Outline May 2020 for exams taken from 02.01.2021.

Delivered by PMP® certified training professionals, our PMP® course is geared towards getting you into the right mindset to study, apply for, and pass your exam first time.

Our PMP® Exam Preparation Format

Our format is the result of years delivering successful PMP® exam preparation courses. We have noticed that running training over consecutive days in an intensive manner gets students off to a head start for their exam.

We include guidance on the PMI® application process, support in setting up the right kind of study plan, and most importantly, 60 days unlimited access to our online PMP® Exam Simulator. Working with an exam simulator helps to build your confidence and develop the stamina and mindset you’ll need for the PMP® exam.

What is Included?

Our aim is to give you what you need to get from thinking about a PMP® certification to achieving your goal.

This includes:

  • 5 days of live virtual (online) classroom training with a PMP® expert.
  • 60 days of unlimited access to our online PMP® exam simulator.
  • Course materials: slides and supporting documents.

Note: The only elements not included with our course fee are Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) textbook, the PMI’s Agile Practice Guide 2017, and the PMP® Exam costs. Exam costs must be paid directly to the PMI® upon application for your exam. We can advise on the best stockists for your PMBOK® Guide and Agile Practice Guide textbook.

PMP® Course Benefits:

Inclusive Exam Preparation Solution
As we’ve listed above, our course is designed to set you up for PMP® Exam Success.

Guidance from Experts

Our trainers are PMP® credential holders who have delivered countless exam preparation programmes over the years.

As PMP® credential holders, their skills always remain fresh and cutting edge. As you’ll read in the “Maintaining Your PMP® Certification” section below, further professional development is essential for all PMP® certified individuals.

Exam Simulator for Confidence & Stamina

While theoretical learning is a large part of the syllabus from the PMBOK® Guide and Agile Practice Guide, we believe there is nothing like practical application of knowledge for building capability and confidence.

That’s why we include a 60-day access to our online exam simulator. You’ll be able to complete practice exams and review your progress as you go. An exam simulator also gets you used to the duration and format of the real exam.

Focused Approach for Maximum Retention

Our format is highly successful as it allows participants to devote 5 consecutive days to immersing themselves in the PMP®  exam mindset.

Who is this PMP® course designed for?

This course – and the PMP® certification itself – is designed for experienced project managers.

When you speak with our training consultants, we can guide you through the PMP® exam requirements and advise if it is suitable at this stage of your career.

Unsure of Your Experience?

Our PMP® exam preparation course runs alongside our Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)® course.

The CAPM® certification is another well-respected PMI® qualification. It is ideal for those with no or little project management experience.

As both exams work from the same syllabus, we find that running the training together is very beneficial for those who feel they may be ready for the PMP® exam, but aren’t 100% sure. During training, you can opt to go for the PMP® or CAPM® exam once you get a sense of your own confidence with the material.

Why PMP® Certification?

The PMP® qualification is a fantastic achievement for any career project manager. With it, you are identified as a high-performing professional, capable of delivering consistent project excellence.

This certification is recognised on a global scale, which opens up opportunities for travel and work with large, multinational organisations.

How to Get PMP® Certified:

1. Attend Training: The first step is to attend training that fits your schedule and your quality requirements. One of the PMP® exam requirements is to provide evidence of 35 hours of formal project management training. Our PMP® exam preparation course meets these requirements.

2. Study & Practice Exams: Following training, we recommend that our delegates get started on their study plan as soon as possible. Study is easiest when the knowledge and guidance is fresh.

Timelines for the study period vary from person to person. On average, between 6 and 8 weeks is a good guideline for the study period required.

3. Apply for Your Exam: Once you feel ready, begin the online exam application process with the PMI®. Many students complete this application once they feel confident about how long they will need for study and exam simulator access.

4. Sit Your Exam: Schedule and sit your exam within 1 year of submitting your application. The exam is 4 hours in length.

How to Maintain Your PMP® Credential:

The PMP® Credential is one that must be maintained by earning PDUs (Professional Development Units).

To maintain your credential, you must earn 60 PDUs within each 3-year cycle. This cycle begins on the day you pass your exam.

1 PDU is equal to 1 hour of professional development activities, such as further training.
