Major corporations are adopting A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK Guide) 5th Edition, from the Project Management Institute, and the related Project Management Professional (PMP) Certification, as the primary sources of competency in the field of Project Management.Market research indicates that employers want to hire project management practitioners who have real experience leading and directing projects. To better meet this need, PMI is incorporating in the certification application process the requirement to document experience leading and directing the various tasks required in effective project management. In addition, PMI is placing increased emphasis on situational questions in the testing process for the PMP Certification to better evaluate applicant skill in actually using their PMBOK Guide knowledge. This has made the PMP Certification test harder than it was in the past, and increases the value of preparation course work prior to taking the test. This course, along with the review of materials and repeated practice testing, will more than adequately prepare student to take the PMP Certification Exam. For those individuals who cannot qualify for the PMP Certification Exam, this course will amply prepare them to sit for the CAPM Certification Exam.***** THE MOST RELEVANT CONTENT TO GET YOU UP TO SPEED ********** COURSE UPDATED: February 2016 ********** CERTIFICATE OF COMPLETION *****”Great course content and great instructor.
