Training and Learning Approach

Our PM-learning and PM-certification preparation approach is systemic, rigorous, tested, and effective. It is designed to help learners take ownership of the PM knowledge in order to increase professional competency and or pass the PMP (project management professional) certification exam as they so desire.

The PM training program explores all processes—4-phases, 5-process groups, and 9-knowledge areas—of the body of knowledge of project management to ensure candidates have a full grasp of PM’s basic principles, techniques, methodology, technology, and knowledge. Learners are further exposed to effective techniques and simulations for enhancing competency at work and confidence in becoming certified project management professionals if they choose to pursue that path. The training duration as stated in previous pages is 145 learning contact hours long, with three levels—foundation, intermediate, and advanced.

Completion of each level or training actually qualifies learners to practice project management at specific vocational levels, such as being a project administrator after completing the first level, project coordinator after the second, and project manager after the third.  However, the training will include a series of lab/simulation exercises, self-test exercises, study group assignments, exam simulation tests, and an important review of the latest edition of the PMBOK® Guide—A guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge.
