This course is designed to introduce participants to the key concepts, topics and guidance provided by PMI for the PMP certification. The course also helps participants to prepare and study for successful completion of the exam.
The PMP examination is a vital part of the earning this professional certification thus it is imperative that the exam accurately reflect the practices of project managers. All the questions on the examination have been written and extensively reviewed by subject matter experts who hold a valid PMP and tracked to at least two references. These questions are mapped to the PMP Examination Content Outline to ensure that an appropriate number of questions are in place for a valid examination.
