PMP Prep Info

The Los Angeles Chapter offers two PMP® preparation courses per year, one in the spring and one in the fall that run for 6 Saturdays. In addition, there are a few boot camps that run for 4 consecutive weekdays.These workshops provide study materials and guidance to assist PMI® members in their preparation for the PMP Certification Exam. PMP certified chapter members or PMI members who are recognized as subject matter experts conduct the sessions in the Southern California area.

This workshop is intended for anyone who wishes to achieve their PMP® or CAPM® certification after meeting the requirements as identified by PMI®.

This workshop will help you prepare for exam success and will provide you with the eligibility requirement of 35 contact hours in project management education for PMP® or 23 contact hours in project management for CAPM®.

Participants will be provided with study materials.  However, the PMBOK will not be provided. Students are encouraged to either purchase a hardcopy or use the free electronic copy that is accessible after signing up to become a PMI member. Although not required for this workshop, it is highly encouraged for the students to download or obtain the printed manuscript before class begins, as some sessions will refer directly to pages in the PMBOK. Please make sure to consider about a 1 to 2-week lead time for any ordered materials to arrive before class starts.  Inquiries as to course content, schedule, or any other course information may be sent to profdev@pmi-la.org.

NOTE: This course is NOT intended to teach the participant project management nor is it intended to impart project management industry experience. Its primary purpose is to prepare the participant for the PMP® exam based on the PMI® identified domains and PMI® recommended preparation material.

Why enroll?

The PMP Prep Workshop assists participants in their preparation for the PMP Certification Exam by providing a structured review of the areas to focus on for the test. The workshop is not intended as a primary source of the knowledge and understanding required in order to pass the exam. Most people find that the class helps them identify their weak areas, to help focus study efforts. Enrollees also get the support and assistance of other individuals studying for the exam.

The classes are conducted by top notch PMP volunteer instructors. You can view their profiles here.
