SANTA CLARITA • 4 day PMP® Boot Camp

 
Our 4 day PMP® exam prep course prepares you to easily pass the 200 question, 4 hour PMP® exam.   Excellent prices and small class sizes bring big results!

Our instructor-led, in-person, classroom
environment, combined with our on-line PMP®
simulation test, work together providing you
the knowledge and insight needed to
pass the PMP® exam and earn your Project
Management Professional credential.

While other providers typically present the PMP®
material from the encyclopedia-like prospective of the 
10 knowledge areas, our course is unique in that we
present the PMP® material in a natural format  
following the 5 process groups. We start with Project
Initiation and end with Project Closing. We feel this
is a far better approach to learning the PMP® Exam
material and being able to apply it to your
organization going forward.

In addition to study aids and the on-line test
simulation, all of our participants will receive
their own copy of the Project Management
Body of Knowledge Guide-Sixth Edition.
 
 
 
 
 
Attend our four day class...
take your exam and
become PMP® certified!
 

 
 
 
"Great prep class! Absolutely necessary and effective way to prepare for the exam. Thanks!"

    -Mike, Project Manager
