Employers in every field and occupation are seeking individuals who have the managerial skill, knowledge, and education in project management. In today’s competitive job market, credentials matter more than ever. Not only are project managers with PMP® credentials more marketable, but they also have access to better opportunities. In collaboration with Pace University, we have designed a session for PMP aspirants preparing for the exam. This session will revolve around the project management knowledge areas and the various processes included in the framework. The entire discussion will also align with "A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide)—Fifth Edition."
 
You'll learn the following: 
  • Test tips towards the PMP® Exam
  • An introduction to the 10 Knowledge Areas
  • Format of the test & recent added-emphasis on scenario questions
  • An awareness of the “Brain Dump” as an advantage for test takers, and the recent change about using the brain dump
 
Ideal for all professionals who seek to explore the concepts of project management and are preparing to become PMP certified.
