About the course

The PMP® credential is the most important industry recognized certification for managers. Globally recognized and demanded, the PMP® demonstrates that you have the experience, education, and competency to lead and direct projects.

The CAPM® is a valuable certification for project practitioners which is designed for those with entry level experience. CAPM® demonstrates an understanding of the fundamental knowledge, terminology, and processes of effective project management.

Taught by a PMP® credentialed instructor, materials used in this program are aligned with A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide), a universally recognized standard for project management. This 3-day workshop will enhance your project management skills throughout any project’s life cycle from project initiation to closing, as well as provide an increased awareness of professional responsibility.
