We Know You Have Experience:
This PMP training course is constructed to help project managers master the material needed to obtain PMP certification. The PMP Boot Camp was designed with the recognition that because of the specific requirements of your organizations, practicing project managers (PMs) often have great expertise in some areas but would greatly benefit from the review of the entire project management field.

The Method:
This PMP training course is divided logically into two parts. The first part reinforces the PM's understanding of project management, while at the same time introducing the precise terminology and project management philosophy of PMI. The second part drills into you the specific topical knowledge needed to pass the PMP examination.

Using Your Experience:
The first part of this PMP training course leads you through the Project Management Life Cycle using the context of the PMI Process Groups. It teaches project management the way it’s practiced, from start to finish. This methodology builds on your existing knowledge base to enable you to adopt the precise language and standardized terminology of PMI, and build real-world project management skills.

Preparing for the Exam:
The second part of this PMP training course examines the specific skills of project management through the lens of the Ten Knowledge Areas. Special importance is given to those concepts which historically have been emphasized by PMI, including memorization of guides and diagrams. Intense question review and focused memorization are an integral part of this section.

Putting it all Together:
This PMP training course is an intensive 4–day course. You need to come prepared to put in a full day, with study assignments in the evenings. Frequent practice exams, reviews and written exercises will enable you to master the test–taking skills needed for the PMP examination.
