Overview

The Project Management Institute (PMI) sponsors a project management accreditation programme. The purpose and goal of this programme is the development, maintenance, evaluation, promotion and administration of a rigorous professional certification credential of the highest calibre. It is called the Project Management Professional (PMP®).

To be eligible for the PMP® Credential delegates must first meet general educational, specific project management educational and project management experience requirements and agree to adhere to a code of ethics and professional conduct.

The final step to becoming a PMP® is passing a multiple-choice examination1 designed to objectively assess and measure an individual’s ability to apply project management knowledge in the following five domains: initiating the project, planning the project, executing the project, monitoring and controlling the project, closing the project. This computer-based examination is administered globally by Prometric.

The 5-day course is designed to assist delegates to prepare for and take the PMP® Examination. The course is normally delivered through a block of 4 ‘Learning Days’ during which the delegates can begin or continue the accreditation application. The application is an on-line process and takes place outside course hours. After the 4th day delegates can complete – and if ready – submit their application. Once the application is accepted the examination can then be scheduled on-line through Prometric at a time and date scheduled by the participants.

The 5th day is dedicated to revision prior to sitting the exam.
