Project Management Professional (PMP)® Certification Preparation
PMI's 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.
