PMP® Exam Prep

35 PDUs / contact hours

Are you ready for a career boost or perhaps a change? The globally recognized Project Management Professional (PMP)® certification demonstrates that you have the experience, education and competency to lead and direct projects.

To pass the exam, relying on your project experience will not be enough. Becoming familiar with the format and type of questions on the PMP exam will allow you to be better prepared to succeed. This course was developed in conjunction with the Project Management Institute (PMI)® A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) — Fifth Edition and other sources. The workshop focuses on the five project processes and the ten knowledge areas as outlined in the PMBOK® Guide as well as the professional responsibility domain.

Participants will learn valuable strategies and obtain tips for taking their exam and have the opportunity to put them into practice during this course. The workshop includes a wide variety of learning tools and study aids. As part of the workshop you will have access to a subscription for online exam questions and detailed solutions.

This workshop is recognized by PMI® for the 35 contact hours necessary to qualify to write the PMP® Exam.

Professional Development Units are allocated according to the number of training hours completed by the student and may be granted by increments of 0.25 PDU for each 15 minutes of training. A participation certificate will be given to students who attend a minimum of 90% of the course.


We are Committed to Help You Succeed!
We at the Centre for Continuing Education strive to ensure that you will be successful in your PMP® certification exam after training with the PMP® Exam Prep. However, if you are unsuccessful on the exam we will reimburse you the value of the exam retake(s) and ultimately the full amount paid for the PMP® Exam Prep course if you fail after three attempts at the exam allowed by PMI®. However you must retake the exam within the timelines and provide additional information as identified in the detailed description of the terms and conditions.

To obtain a PMP® certification, you must satisfy the education and experience requirements set out by PMI®, adhere to a Professional Code of Conduct, and pass the PMP® Certification Examination. Along with meeting those requirements, you will need 35 contact hours of classroom instruction and these are provided by the PMP® Exam Prep workshop.
