Project Management Professional (PMP)® Overview

Project Managers are imperative in every industry, and the fundamental concepts that determine the success of a manager do not drastically differ between industries - hence this globally recognized Project Management Professional (PMP)® certification is beneficial for progressive Project Managers looking to enhance their qualification portfolio, management competencies, credibility, salary, and employability prospects.

This Project Management Professional (PMP)® Exam Prep Boot Camp Weekend Training Course allows you to develop your project management self-efficacy and delivery techniques, in order to make you a proficient Project Manager across a variety of projects, regardless of size, scope, or budget.

Centered around the ‘Project Management Body of Knowledge, (PMBOK® Guide)’, the PMP® Exam Prep Boot Camp Weekend Training Course is designed to enhance your knowledge and project management credibility - demonstrating that you have extensive experience, education, and awareness of applicable management techniques.

Given the comprehensive entry requirements, this qualification is a signifier of professionalism that only the most elite Project Managers can attain - elevating your credibility and integrity, in a competitive market.

Our highly engaging instructors are there to help you tailor your learning to specific professional and personal development needs - proactive and practical elements of the PMP® Exam Prep Boot Camp Weekend Training Course will help you develop transferable skills. Critical decisions are pivotal in determining whether a Project Manager is deemed capable or not, hence, having extensive knowledge can help to justify business cases and ensure that informed decisions are made, rather than impulsive choices.

As the demand for astute Project Managers increases, parallel to the requirement for projects to be punctual, of quality, and within budget, the PMP® certification positions candidates optimally to be able to contribute to the completion of projects.

  • 4 hours to complete the exam with no scheduled breaks
  • The exam is in English however if you require additional language aids, they are provided in 14 other languages at no extra cost
