Why study this course

PMI’s Project Management Professional (PMP) credential is the most important, industry-recognised certification for project managers. Globally recognised and demanded, the PMP credential demonstrates that you have the experience, education and competency to successfully lead and direct projects.

This classroom-based course is aimed at people who work, or would like to work, on projects on a daily basis and would like to achieve the PMP Certification, based on the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®) Guide – 6th Edition. More specifically, this course is for project managers who want to master the PMBOK Guide – 6th Edition and improve their skills in managing projects. This course fulfils all exam requirements and approved 35 hours of contact for the PMP Exam.

This program contains five highly interactive and modular course units delivered by an Authorized Training Partner (ATP) with the Project Management Institute (PMI®). The course is enriched with engaging questions from real-life project situations. Through the two interactive mock exams (included as part of courseware), the participants will be optimally prepared to take and pass the exam.

Exam InformationThe PMP Exam is a 3hr 50min closed book exam consisting of 180 questions, which will be a combination of multiple-choice, multiple responses, matching, hotspot, and limited fill-in-the-blank. See prototype questions to learn more.
