Our goal is not only to help you pass the exam, but also make you into an effective project manager. We therefore do not recommend taking any PMP Exam Prep course unless you already have had training in at least the fundamentals of project management. For this training, we recommend our 3-day Project Management Essentials: Part 1 workshop (or equivalent).
We also strongly recommend that prior to taking any PMP Exam Prep course, that you have met PMI’s requirements for writing the exam, and ideally have already completed the application process and have been approved*. If you are not sure if you qualify, please give us a call at 800-214-8096 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to help steer you onto the right path.
*note, about 30% of exam applicants are audited by PMI. If your application has not been pre-approved prior to your attending the PMP Exam Prep course and you are audited, you may not qualify to write the exam within the 1 – 2 week recommended time period after completing the course.
