The Exam Prep Course for PMP Certification, called TheCourse Online, is offered in collaboration with University Learning Institute and is designed to help you prepare for the PMI Exam that will certify you as a Project Management Professional.
This course (TheCourse™) was developed, maintained and is conducted by a Registered Education Provider of the Project Management Institute (PMI®). It is registered with PMI as a 56-hour course, surpassing their 35-hour requirement, to prepare students for certification as Project Management Professionals (PMP®). Course materials include PMI's Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge Current Edition (PMBOK®, currently 5th edition), workbooks tailored for TheCourse, and TheTest(tm), a Test Engine containing several hundred exam-like questions, to download and use on your own computer. TheCourse teaches the core competencies of project management. It covers the process groups and knowledge areas of PMBOK, the PMI code of ethics and professional conduct, and a review of general management topics known to be in the PMP examination. Project management is an evolving profession, and employers are increasingly requiring that their project managers be certified.
Number of Hours
It is estimated that the course will take approximately 56 hours, but time will vary with each individual student since you can enroll in the course at any time and you work at your own pace.
