This course teaches you project management from the PMBOK® Guide perspective and prepares you for the PMP exam.
Note: this course is designed for the PMBOK Guide vr. 5. We will soon update it for the new version.
The course is designed in a way that is easy to follow for a busy professional. It’s not only an aid for memorizing things for the exam; it really teaches you the topic. The main goal is to learn more about project management; ability to pass the exam is a byproduct.
It is equal to 6 days of classroom training. It’s a set of video lessons (16 hours in total), educational games, integrated flashcards, and sample questions; everything you need to learn the topic. Management Plaza is a PMI R.E.P and this course satisfies your official 35 contact hours of training required for the PMP exam.
The first 30% of the elearning course is free. You can start the course right now, even without registration, and purchase the product when you’re sure that it’s what you’ve been looking for.
Registration is not required
Q. Can I use this course for my 35 contact hours required for the exam?
A. Of course! This is a standard course delivered by a PMI R.E.P.
Q. Can I get PDUs by taking this course?
A. PDUs are for those who already have a PMI certificate, not those who are preparing for one. So, if you are preparing for the PMP exam, you’ll get “contact hours”, but if you are already certified and take this course, then you can submit 42 PDUs.
Q. Are the flashcards available with free access?
A. The “integrated flashcards” are part of the lessons 19 to 75, and are practices online. They are not available for download, but you have access to some of them while you’re using the free lessons. In this system, new cards related to each lesson are added to the pool, and you can practice all of them with a specific space repetition technology. The goal is to continuously practice what you have learned in the previous lessons.
Q. How long is the course available after purchase?
A. One year.
Q. Is this course enough for passing the exam?
A. While no one can really guarantee your success in the exam, we’ve tried our best to include everything you need in this package.
Q. What are the prerequisites for the PMP exam?
A. 4500 hours of work experience related to project management for those who have a university degree, and 7500 hours for others, and a standard training in project management (this elearning course). Note that the experience has to be related to project management activities (e.g. helping a project manager counts), and you don’t have to be a project manager yourself.
Q. There are many PMP courses; how can I choose?
A. The best way is to check and compare the demos, and see which one is the best for you.
Q. What differentiates your course course from others?
A. Instead of being focused on the exam, we are focused on teaching project management from the PMBOK point of view, which makes the course more practical and not boring. On the other hand, this is also the best way you can pass the exam.
