Not Just Test Prep – Skills-Based Training

Learn Project Management using the context of the PMI Process Groups - Study exam topics through the lens of the Nine Knowledge Areas

We Know You Have Experience:

The Project Management Boot Camp - PMP Prep course is constructed to help project managers master the material needed to obtain the PMP credential. It was designed with the recognition that because of the specific requirements of your organizations, practicing project managers (PMs) often have great expertise in some areas but would greatly benefit from the review of the entire project management field.

The Method:

The Project Management Boot Camp - PMP Prep course is divided logically into two parts - the first, to reinforce the PMs understanding of project management while at the same time introduction the PMI project management philosophy; and the second, to drill into you the specific topical knowledge needed to pass the PMP examination.

Using Your Experience:

The first part leads you through the Project Management Life Cycle using the context of the PMI Process Groups. It teaches project management the way it is practiced, from start to finish. This methodology builds on the student's existing knowledge base to enable you to adopt the precise language and standardized terminology of PMI and build real-world project management skills.

Preparing for the Exam:

The second part of the course looks at the specific skills of project management through the lens of the Nine Knowledge Areas. Special importance is given to those concepts, which historically have been emphasized by PMI, including memorization of guides and diagrams. Intense question review and focused memorization will be an integral part of this section.

Putting it all Together:

The Project Management Boot Camp - PMP Prep course is an intensive 4-day course. You need to come prepared to put in a full day, with study assignments in the evenings. Frequent practice exams, reviews and written exercises will enable you to master the test-taking skills needed for the PMP examination.

In-Class Practice Exams and Exercises:

In-class practice exams help you learn not only the project management knowledge, but also the nature of the Project Management Professional exam, the types of questions asked, and the form the questions take. Through practice exercises you will gain valuable information, learn how to rapidly recall important facts, and generally increase your test-taking skills. Specifically, you will:

  • Learn the subject matter of the PMP examination
  • Memorize the important test information that has a high probability of being on your examination
  • Develop time management skills necessary to complete the PMP exam within the allotted time
  • Leverage your existing Project Management Skills
