PMP® Exam Review Course

This workshop is geared toward toward helping individuals prepare to take the PMP® exam and enhance project management skills!

It is called an Exam Review because it is for students who have been on the PMP® certification track for a bit of time already, most likely previously studying on their own, in our Certificate in Project Management Program, or with a study group. Over a series of half-day sessions this workshop will help bring everything together, help explain topics you are struggling with, set your expectations accurately, and build the knowledge and confidence necessary to help you pass this challenging exam.

 

During the workshop we will review the concepts that many students struggle with in each of the PMBOK® chapters. The reviews are thorough but interactive, allowing students to discuss, restate, participate in brief drills, and experience practice exam questions.

What is PMP® Certification?

The Project Management Institute's Project Management Professional (PMP®) credential is recognized as the universal standard of the profession.  PMP® certification is often a criteria that is either required or requested of job candidates for senior project management positions. In this workshop, you become better prepared for the PMP® exam and earn the 35 hours of required education required to be eligible to apply.

 

Getting PMP® certified helps expand your project management knowledge and skills, it validates your professional work experience (which is also an eligibility requirement) and it increases your marketability, and often salary level. According to the PMI Salary Survey — Sixth Edition a PMP® increases your salary up to 10% more than your non-credentialed colleagues and peers.

 

There are currently four other certifications offered by PMI. They are the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM®), the Program Management Professional (PgMP®), the Scheduling Professional (PMI-SP®), and the Risk Management Professional (PMI-RMP®). However, the PMP® is by far the most well-known and most requested of job candidates.

Why HALF days?

There are three very important reasons why half-day sessions are best:

  1. Our brains cannot learn for 8 hours straight. The material that we cover is not easy. It takes mental energy to fully participate and it takes time to sink in and buffer between sessions. Two to four hours seems to be a good session length for highly motivated, mature adults. Eight-hour sessions (or longer) stress the body and the brain.
  2. Most participants lead demanding professional and private lives that they cannot put on hold for three full days. Half day sessions allow participants to keep the rest of their lives in balance.
  3. Emperical studies show that participants in multi-day, full-day training programs do not review program material between sessions. They are simply too burnt out. However, participants in half-day training programs often individually review their learning privately between sessions. This review greatly enhances retention and results in a less-stressed test taker and a more successful outcome.
