PMP Prep Course - March 7 to April 4

This PMP Prep Course is offered by the PMI-LA chapter for the members to take advantage of this great offer at a reasonable price. The PMP exam is changing starting July 1st, 2020 so please take advantage of this incredible offer.
This is a formal training course that is required to prepare for the PMI PMP exam. It covers 35 hours needed for exam application.
The course is based on the Project Management Institute, A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge, (PMBOK® Guide) - Sixth Edition, Project Management Institute, Inc. The objective of the course is to prepare students for the Project Management Professional (PMP)® certification examination.
Students will conduct an in-depth review of the ten knowledge areas and five process groups in the PMBOK®  Guide and practice common project management formulas. Students will gain the confidence to pass the PMP® certification examination through a thorough review of the content, study aids, and test simulations.
The course steps through the core concepts that are tested on the exams by quickly reviewing each concept and at the same time addressing what the student needs to know from an exam perspective. The format throughout the course is - lecture style to explain the key concepts needed for the exam, interactive Q&A to ensure everyone understood the concepts, exam perspective for each concept, short 5-10 minute quizzes a few times a day, practice test questions for each knowledge area, and a final practice test. In addition to classroom sessions and course materials, participants receive access to an online question bank to practice exam questions outside of class.


Highly qualified and the chapter-vetted instructors will teach the class.
