Project Management Institute (PMI)® CAPM® and PMP® Certification

Exam Preparation Course

Project Management Institute (PMI) Exam Preparation for CAPM and PMP Certification Overview

Project management is experiencing unprecedented growth and recognition as a profession. A consequence of this growth is increased reliance upon project management and the need to professionally recognise project management ability. As companies increasingly adopt project management into their businesses, the demand for knowledgeable practitioners increases globally.

The Project Management Institute, Inc. (PMI)® sponsors a project management certification program. The purpose and goal of this certification program is the development, maintenance, evaluation, promotion and administration of a rigorous, examination-based, professional certification credential of the highest calibre – the Project Management Professional (PMP)® credential.

Our PMI Exam Preparation course provides the necessary study and preparation required to obtain the globally recognised PMP or Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)® certification from the PMI.

Our intention is not to teach participants how to manage projects, but to guide them through the process and study required to obtain certification.

Excellent course, well delivered and informative. Good value whether preparing for the exam or just wanting a deep-dive into PMP.
