Project Management Professional (PMP)® Certification Preparation
The Project Management Institute's (PMI)® Project Management Professional (PMP)® certification is the preeminent professional credential for individuals associated with project management. This course provides students with the training, the materials and the support to prepare for the challenging PMP® examination. Completion of this course qualifies as the formal education requirement to sit for the PMP® examination.
To be eligible for the PMP® certification, you must first meet specific education and experience requirements and agree to adhere to a code of professional conduct. PMI®'s education requirements will be fulfilled by successfully completing the UMBC course, but the experience requirements are extensive, and can be referenced more specifically at www.pmi.org. The final step in becoming a PMP® is passing a multiple-choice examination (exam fee not included in course tuition) designed to objectively assess and measure your project management knowledge. This computer-based examination is administered globally through Authorized Prometric Test Centers.
