The PMP® Certificate is the most recognized and respected credential in the field of project management!

We are a Registered Education Provider for the Project Management Institute!



This program is specifically designed to prepare candidates for passing the Project Management Professional (PMP) and Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) certification exams.  The course’s completely updated curriculum is based on the newly released A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK Guide): Sixth Edition.

Why Should You Take This Course?

  • According to PMI, the PMP exam will be updated to reflect the new PMBOK Sixth Edition on March 26, 2018.  This program focuses on the new, Sixth Edition and will teach to the information contained in the updated exam.  However, the concepts that have been changed or updated from the previous, Fifth Edition, will be discussed and emphasized.  Those candidates wishing to take the current exam based on the Fifth Edition (should it still be available at the end of the program), will come out with the knowledge necessary to successfully pass.
  • You can find PMPs leading projects in nearly every country and, unlike other certifications that focus on a particular geography or domain, the PMP is truly global. As a PMP, you can work in virtually any industry, with any methodology and in any location. The PMP signifies that you speak and understand the global language of project management and it connects you to a community of professionals, organizations and experts worldwide.
  • The PMP can also provide a significant advantage when it comes to salary and earning potential. Among survey respondents to PMI’s Earning Power Salary Survey, those with the PMP certification garner a higher salary (20% higher on average) than those without the credential.

Why is the PMBOK® Guide changing?

  • Part 2 of the PMBOK® Guide is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and must be updated every four to five years.
  • PMI continually learns more about what drives successful project outcomes through their research… and they want to share those drivers with the project management community.

The PMBOK® Guide – Sixth Edition includes information on how to implement its approaches in agile environments — a first for PMI.

Other additions include:
