Who is this programme suitable for?

The difference between the PMP® and other project management certifications is that project management experience is a precursor to taking the PMP® examination. The PMI require each potential PMP® candidate to document 5 years of experience leading a project (or 3 years if you have a degree), before they can apply to take the four-hour examination.

While this might seem arduous, it does illustrate the prestige of the certification; you are an experienced PM, who can also pass a 200 question, multiple-choice examination. Once you have completed your training and examination you can add the letters PMP after your name!

In addition to this, the PMI have established several communities of practice worldwide, known as Chapters, whose remit is to seek to improve project management as a discipline. These Chapters will assist you with project delivery, templates, and upon successful exam completion can help you to attain the 60 professional development units (PDUs) necessary to maintain your PMP® credentials.

Prerequisites for enrolment – None. Everyone is welcome to enrol onto this course

Perquisites for the exam – 5 years’ experience leading a project, or 3 years’ experience for delegates with a University degree. Delegates are also required to attend a 35-hour project management course before attempting the exam – this course amply fulfils this criterion.
