A cohort group consists of students who want to band together with other students who are studying in the Frank P. Saladis Certificate in Project Management program with the goal of getting their PMP® credential from PMI. Our PMP® exam prep cohort groups range in size. Cohort students will usually progress through the same scheduled virtual sessions together, with roughly similar timing goals for taking the PMP® exam (such as in Q3 of 2016).
These students collectively begin and complete the program together. If they are unable to attend a session live, they need to review the session video recording within one week of when the session was held.
This is a blended learning program including live interactive sessions with an expert instructor, some individual online learning, and some required offline reading and assignments. All individuals in the cohort group complete their online courseware, learning logs, and practice exams individually. They are also individually responsible to determine when they are ready to sit for their PMP® exam based on the scores they receive on practice exams and their own schedules.
