The PMP/CAPM Exam Prep course is designed to thoroughly prepare a student for the Project Management Professional exam by providing the knowledge, training, and experience from well experienced Project Managers. Using their field experience and real world examples, the instructors are able to provide an effective way of teaching maximum transfer and retention. The course is designed to offer you the opportunity to sit for the exam immediately upon completion. Your Project Management Institute (PMI) application must be completed, submitted, and approved in order to schedule the exam immediately.
