Course Description

Prerequisites: None

The PMP® exam is the leading certification in the field of project management. Those who pass this rigorous exam become certified project managers by the Project Management Institute (PMI)®—an industry authority for setting and maintaining standards for effective and reliable project management.

Successful PMP® candidates are recognized as top professionals within their industries. Project managers who have proven skills and experience can find exciting, high-visibility opportunities in a variety of industries.

According to PMI:

  • The PMP® adds value. Ranked by CIO Magazine as the top project management certification in North America, the PMP® demonstrates a dedication to excellence and the capacity to perform at the highest levels.
  • The PMP® delivers benefits. The median salary for project professionals in North America is 25% higher than those without it.
  • The PMP® demonstrates the ability to work smarter. Project managers with the PMP® certification show they have the skills to drive business results and increase their organization’s impact in the office and around the world.

This in-person or online project management bootcamp prepares candidates for the PMP® exam and provides them with the knowledge and skills to advance in a project management role.
