Prepare for the popular PMP® exam by the Project Management Institute (PMI)® with four full days of structured review of the key project domains and required knowledge needed to pass the exam. The course material follows the sequence of a project life cycle covering a six-step framework of keeping the business in mind, starting the project, planning the project, leading the project team, supporting the project team, and closing the project. Taught by instructors who are subject matter experts in both waterfall and rolling-wave practices, this course prepares candidates for the question distribution that will appear on the exam: 8% on the Business Environment, 42% on the People domain, and 50% on Processes, with an overarching 50% of the whole heavily reliant on agile/adaptive and the remaining on predictive project development approaches. Individuals who pass the exam earn the profession's most universally recognized and respected credential, the Project Management Professional (PMP)® certification. To be eligible for the PMP® certification, you must first meet specific requirements by PMI® for work experience, educational hours, and agree to adhere to a code of professional conduct. This course helps you meet the required educational hours and prepares you with hints and tips to tackle the rigorous PMP® Exam.
