PMP®/CAPM® Test Prep for Minneapolis and St. Paul Project Managers

Through the use of an iPad® simulation 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 iPad®-based simulation deepens learning by immersing participants in dozens of project management situations relevant to both the exam and real-life project management. The simulation provides a rich multi-media experience designed to increase the levels of learning and give participants an experience to build on.

Each day participants will encounter specific sections of the PMBOK® along with simulation activities, reviews, and quizzes. Practice questions, flashcards, quizzes and additional study aids 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.
