PMP Exam Prep Course Fall 2015


pmp prep course

PMI-CCVC is holding the Fall PMP Exam Prep Course for 2015 in collaboration with the Craig School of Business at Fresno State. The Craig School of Business has been named a Registered Education Provider (REP) after meeting the Project Management Institute’s (PMI®) rigorous standards for quality and effectiveness.

Demand for PMP-credentialed project managers is increasing.  And recent surveys have shown on average, PMP credential holders are earning more money that their non-credentialed counterparts.  In this course you’ll gain the essential knowledge and preparation necessary to pass the Project Management Institute’s PMP Certification Exam.  The course is based on PMI’s PMBOK Guide 5th Edition.
This unique training, taught by professional PMP-certified project managers with over 100 combined years experience, will help you understand - not memorize - the concepts necessary to pass the PMP exam. Our instructor’s backgrounds include Healthcare, Engineering, Construction, Transportation, Telecommunications, Manufacturing, Education, Aviation, Electronics, and Information Systems.
When: September 14th thru October 21st (Mondays & Wednesdays)
