How will I benefit from taking this course/what career paths will be open to me?

Few people can walk into the PMP  certification exam without preparation and pass. Most examinees prepare rigorously for the exam, which covers a wide range of Project Management-related topics, updated regularly to cover the latest concepts. In addition, the exam uses specific process-oriented terminology not addressed in general Project Management texts and courses.

To pass the certification exam, participants must be current and fluent in a wide range of topics, know PMI  terminology and context, and be able to apply that knowledge.

This course condenses the learning time required to prepare for the PMP  certification exam. It summarizes the critical points from all of the PMI  recommended test preparation texts (approximately 4300 pages) and fully addresses all the topic areas covered in the exam. It prepares delegates to pass by reminding them of what they know, educating them on what they don't know, and putting the whole into the appropriate context.
