To be eligible to sit the PMP® exam, delegates must meet the general educational, specific project management educational and project management experience requirements of the Project Management Institute (PMI) and agree to adhere to a code of ethics and professional conduct.

The final requirement to becoming a PMP® is passing a multiple-choice exam designed to assess an individual on their ability to apply project knowledge in five areas. These are; Initiating the Project, Planning the Project, Executing the Project, Monitoring and Controlling the Project and finally, Closing the Project. 

This 5-day course - delivered once a week for 5 weeks - is designed to prepare delegates to apply for and take the PMP® exam. The first 4 days are designated as ‘Learning Days’ during which delegates can begin or continue the accreditation application. The 5th day is dedicated to content revision and includes a trial exam with answer analysis.
