Project Management Professional (PMP) Online


The PMP Certification exam changed on 2nd January 2021. This online course has been updated to prepare delegates for the new examination.

Project Management Professional (PMP)® is an 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 product is aligned to the PMBOK® Guide - Sixth Edition.

The PMP e-learning is based on the PMBOK® Guide. Students view and review e-learning sessions, complete a range of interactive exercises in each session, and test themselves with a range of multiple-choice format questions. These questions are based on typical questions in the PMP examination.

The course is highly interactive and engaging, containing animation and narration throughout. Built using our proven development approach, the course breaks down the Project Management Institute, A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge, (PMBOK® Guide) Sixth Edition into easily digested sessions, which align with each of the PMBOK® Guide knowledge areas.

Each session contains lots of real-life examples that help learners to apply the theory. The course includes a wealth of interaction, including exercises and puzzles to help develop practical application and assist with knowledge retention. Learners are introduced to our virtual classmates; a group of animated characters who help explore some of the PMBOK® Guide more complex concepts. Each session also includes numerous multiple-choice questions to test the users' understanding.

PMP is not simply an exam-crammer - it provides a comprehensive insight into the world of projects and project management. After completing this course, learners will have a much greater understanding and will be well-prepared to sit the PMP® examination, however it is important to remember (especially with PMP) that the training course alone will not be enough to get you through the exam. You are expected to have a certain level of knowledge and experience which is reflected in the exam pre-requisites.

The actual study time is approximately 35 hours - 40 hours.

Note: The exam is not included in this product.If you wish to take the PMP certification you will need to contact PMI directly.
