The Project Management Institute (PMI) The Knowledge Academy

Course Overview 

The Project Management Institute (PMI) sets standards in project management and provides project managers with certification recognized around the world.

This course delivers the knowledge needed to take the PMP exam. It covers the Knowledge Areas, Process Groups, Inputs, Tools/Techniques, and Outputs contained in the PMBOK, as well as a broad spectrum of project management concepts expected of project managers in today’s demanding environments.

During this course, students will need a copy of A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge: PMBOK Guide, 5th Edition (ISBN 978-1935589679), which delegates will need to purchase separately. All delegates MUST BRING the PMBoK to the course.

In addition, delegates are expected to read pages 1 through 63 before the first day of class. During the four-day class, they should also expect as much as two hours of homework each evening, as determined by the instructor before the end of each day.

The training is delivered by highly experienced project management trainers, with participation by the delegates being integral to the learning process. Delegates will explore project management issues via group discussion.

The syllabus covers a wide breadth of topics, from the essential management tools required to monitor and control a project through to the wider context in which the project is being managed in terms of social and environmental issues, finance, organization, procurement, and people management.
