PMP Preparation Classes

A thorough review of all topics covered on the PMP certification exam.

"The PMIWDC PMP Exam Preparation course helped me to focus my study efforts on key topics and principles essential for passing the PMP exam. All of the instructors were seasoned professionals who patiently answered my questions and really inspired me to achieve my PMP certification. Reviewing the course materials, study tips, and recommended references provided all the tools for success---I highly recommend this class!"

“I passed the exam with a comfortable margin – I could not have done so without this course.”
--Allan Sager, PMP, Past Participant

Session Notes

Course Content:

The classes are intended to help participants prepare for the PMP exam, and are taught by certified Project Management Professionals, who have years of practical project management experience.  Those wishing to attend the classes should already have a background in project management fundamentals. The course will serve as a review for experienced project managers preparing for the PMP Exam. A continental breakfast, beverages and lunch will be provided each day.

Course Structure:

The review courses are structured according to A Guide to the PMBOK 5th Edition knowledge areas, with a full-day review of the five phases of the project life cycle. The course instruction is taught by experts in the subject matter. The order of the topics to be presented may change.

Course Materials:

Registered participants will receive prep course materials used during class instruction that include sample exam questions.

Additional Considerations:

The chapter recommends that participants taking this class be qualified and plan a scheduled date for their PMP exam soon after the end of the class.  Please note that PMI requires that all of the project management courseware needed for the 35 contact hours be completed at time of application.  Therefore, if you are using the 26 contact hours provided by this course as part of your necessary contact hours, you must complete the course before you submit your application.

This course is intended to reduce the overall hours of study required to pass the PMP exam. Please register/qualify to take the exam by completing the PMI Global Operations Center (GOC) registration form available on the PMI website. After you receive notice from PMI GOC of your qualification to take the exam, Prometric will administer the PMP exam on a date and time you arrange. This can be done at any time of year and at a number of different sites. In addition, it is helpful to review PMI's PMP Certification Handbook for further guidance on preparing for the exam. Please see our PMP Exam FAQs for additional information.
