Course Overview

Course in a Nutshell

This is a five-day, instructor-led course designed to prepare project management practitioners for the Project Management Professional (PMP®) or Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM®) examination. Course content and delivery are structured around the latest available The Guide to the PMBOK® knowledge areas and supplemental examination material. It is designed to help the PMP®/CAPM® candidates optimize their study and preparation time for the respective certification examinations. This five-day course completely satisfies the requirement for 35 contact hours of formal education.


Customize It!

The content of this course can optionally be delivered in four class days of longer duration (for the same cost as the 5-day course).

For a less in-depth treatment of the subject, the course can be shortened to four standard class days (though that places a little greater burden for test preparation on the participants).


Audience / Prerequisites

Aimed At

Any PMP® or CAPM® candidate who is preparing to sit for the certification examination.



Participants should meet all of the requirements set by the Project Management Institute® for PMP® and CAPM® examination candidates. It is recommended, but not required, that participants complete the examination application before taking this course. Prior formal training in Project Management, e.g., Effective Project Management (PROJMGT3), is helpful but not required.
