What are the most popular PMI training courses?

We offer a range of PMI training courses, but the CAPM and PMP courses are usually the most popular options.

The CAPM course is aimed at anyone who has a basic or limited knowledge of Project Management principles, practices, tools and techniques. It requires a lower level of pre-requisites than the PMP qualification.

The PMP course provides a complete and practical understanding of the PMI Body of Knowledge and the implications of applying it to projects of different types and sizes. Pre-Requisites for this PMI course include academic qualifications and experience.

Where are PMI Exams held?

PMI examinations can be taken at Prometric test centres in  Birmingham, Bournemouth, Bristol, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Guernsey, Leeds, London, Manchester, Newcastle, Peterborough - and other centres in the UK and worldwide.

You will be given details enabling you to book your exam once you have satisfied the PMI that you meet other eligibility criteria.
