Taking a quality PMP training course is more than just sitting in a room with an instructor and a copy of A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide). Since the PMP exam can be extremely challenging, it is vital that you have sufficient study resources at your disposal. We offer the most comprehensive and highest quality training materials available.
PMP Course Binder - Our full-color, professional binder covers the most critical concepts, and shows how they intertwine. We give you the big picture, but also the core details and terminology you must master. We present the material in what we believe to be a more logical and understandable sequence than the PMBOK® Guide offers. Our material is well-organized and mapped to other data sources, making it an excellent tie-together reference. We combine all that with clean graphics and clean grammar to deliver an outstanding course binder.
A PMP Strategy Guide - Perhaps the most impactful study aid, our PMP Strategy Guide® has proven incredibly useful because it outlines several critical areas: formulating a good study plan, what to expect on exam day, understanding the 25 most common confusions students encounter, and identifying the 10 most common types of testing tricks on the PMP exam. Many students read it at least twice; once after class and again when they think they are fully prepared to sit for the exam.
PMBOK® Guide - A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge, Fifth Edition (PMBOK® Guide) is the leading reference tool for sound project management practices. Compiled by a group of leading project management experts from around the world, the PMBOK® Guide sets forth the various processes and tools endorsed by the Project Management Institute® for managing any type of project. The PMBOK® Guide also includes many helpful charts and graphs depicting the flow of data and knowledge across the various management processes.
PMP Quick Study Laminate - Whether riding the subway or exercising on the treadmill, our Quick-Study Guide makes a handy accessory. A bi-fold, color laminate packed with terminology and charts, organized and coded to help you categorize the various concepts, see key distinctions, and understand the materials and their relationships more visually. We strongly urge you not to try this, but some have passed the PMP exam having read only their class notes, the binder and this Guide. The Quick Study Guide leads the way in our impressive set of laminated materials.
PMP Process Group & Key Formulas Laminate1 - You must understand several formulas to pass the exam, along with the scheduling methodology and critical path model. We boil these down into one side of a laminated sheet, providing both the key calculations and a description of their components. If you fully grasp this side of the laminate, earned value and critical path questions should be no problem on the exam. On the reverse side, we chart each of the 47 processes by knowledge area, process group, and PMBOK® Guide chapter, giving you a visual roadmap to follow, both in class and afterwards.
PMP ITTO Laminate2 - You will have to gain a working understanding of all tools and techniques. We present all inputs, tools and techniques, and outputs in a well-organized, color and number-coded laminate chart. While we don't want you spending all your time trying to memorize this comprehensive chart, it will be a critical look-up tool when understanding the flow and progression of the processes and their components. This 2-sided laminated sheet also makes an excellent carry-on for the bus or train.
PMP In-Class Practice Questions - To provide a more interactive experience, and to break up the lectures with more class engagement, we do in-class practice questions at regular intervals. These questions can be difficult, so don't get frustrated if you miss some of them. Sometimes they are meant to be missed to highlight the many common exam writing tricks, so you are better prepared on exam day. They also serve to allow your instructor to identify and explain the subtle distinctions and finer points on which you will be tested.
PMP Sample Forms - Some learners are especially visual, so we have included a packet of template forms for the most important project management plans and documents. It is one thing to read about a Risk Register, but to really understand the importance of certain key documents you should hold them in your hand, and perhaps fill in a blank one. We provide them this way so you can enter in what you are learning in class or doing in your workplace. This gives you a better feel for their utility and functionality.
A PMP Book of Exercises - Because everyone learns differently, we developed a comprehensive downloadable exercise book for you to practice and test yourself. For terminology study, we offer matching exercises, fill in the blank narratives, and crossword puzzles. For earned value and critical path mastery, we show all the various angles from which you are likely to be tested on the exam, and walk you step by step through the answers. These exercises range from fairly easy to quite challenging, helping you master the basics while also ensuring you never get surprised on the exam.
PMP In-Class Mock Exam - We provide a true-to-life simulation of the PMP exam on the last day of class, with all students receiving the same questions. Our in-class mock exam allows students to get an excellent baseline of where they stand before the course ends, and this will help greatly in determining when you should schedule your exam. The exam file is provided to each student on a USB drive, and it auto-grades your answers while providing score breakdowns by process group. Students can then discuss any problem areas in the afternoon review session.
PMP Online Course Lectures - Part of our commitment to you is that you will never leave our course empty-handed. Apart from our other resources, we make sure you are always a click away from detailed audio-visual lectures, broken down individually for each discrete topic/process outlined in the PMBOK® Guide. These videos are professionally recorded using a mind map visual presentation to go along with the audio. In short, this is an entire PMP boot camp on demand, accessible anywhere from your computer or tablet, which you can pause, rewind and replay at your convenience.
PMP Online Practice Questions - Any good PMP prep course must offer practice questions, but we take it to the next level. Our online practice questions will look, feel and function just like the real thing, and you can take as many randomly drawn exams as you wish. Our system grades each exam and breaks down performance by process groups, storing each graded exam and its breakdown so you can track your progress over time. Each exam will contain the same percentage distribution of questions across the 5 process groups like the real exam, making for a more realistic testing experience.
PMP Tutoring Email - You will leave our course knowing that, no matter what questions may arise, help is just an email away. In addition to our weekly Q&A webinars, we also provide ongoing individual support via email. If you encounter something that confuses you in your preparations, simply email our tutoring service and your question will be answered via email by our on-call instructor for that week.
PMP Tutoring Webinar - As another part of our promise that you will never leave class empty handed, we provide free tutoring webinars every Friday at 3pm ET. You can register for these webinars from the web portal, and attend via GoToWebinar. These are informal Q&A sessions where you can ask the instructor anything you wish to discuss as you prepare for the exam. Some students like to attend even if they have no questions, just to get a good re-cap of difficult topics.
PMP Certificate of Completion - When you complete the PMP course, you will receive a professionally-created Certificate of Completion, acknowledging that you have acquired 35 hours of professional development training from a PMI Registered Education Provider®. Should you get audited when applying for the exam, you will need to provide PMI a copy of this certificate. Should you ever lose the one you receive at the end of class, we also provide a link in our online portal where you can download an electronic (PDF) version.
Project Management Academy is the most trusted name in project management training. We help project managers advance their careers through professional training and credentials. We invest more in the quality of our programs and offer more PMP training resources than any other provider. We guarantee all courses will run on the dates listed and we guarantee our students will earn the respective credential, or their full money back.
