PMP®/CAPM® Virtual Test Prep

Through the use of a case study, participants find themselves immersed in the project management situations they will find on the exam.  Because participants actually experience the PMBOK®, they leave with the knowledge, tools, and techniques to pass the new situational exam and improve the performance of their future projects.

The case study deepens learning by immersing participants in dozens of project management situations relevant to both the exam and real-life project management.  The case study provides a rich experience designed to increase the levels of learning and give participants an experience to build on.

Each session participants will encounter specific sections of the PMBOK® along with activities, reviews, and quizzes.  Practice questions, flashcards, quizzes and additional study aids are provided to accelerate learning.


Anyone who desires to pass the PMP® or CAPM® course and become certified.  Note: This course provides an understanding of Project Management Theory and practical applications to put the theory into practice; however, it also spends class time on information specific to taking the PMI® exams.
