ITIL, CAPM, and PMP Training in One Complete 10-Day Program!
Our PMP exam prep and ITIL program is based on three credentials: PMI’s Project Management Professional (PMP), Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM), and ITIL Foundation. The PMP certification is the most important industry-recognized certification for IT project managers. Globally recognized and demanded, the PMP certification demonstrates that students have the experience, education, and competency to lead and direct projects.
IT Professionals with PMP certification are more marketable and make more money according to the Project Management Institute (PMI).
This course has a strong IT orientation and covers core project management skills and a number of foundational IT management skills. It is specifically designed to maximize the probability that you will pass the ITIL and PMP certification exams the first time.
Is PMP Training for Me?
Project Management training with PMP exam prep is ideal for project managers, project team members, functional managers, and others involved in the planning, implementation, and control of projects. If you are looking to solidify skills, stand out to employers and maximize earning potential, this course is for you!
If PMP certification is your goal, our PMP exam prep course goes beyond basic knowledge-based training by immersing you in hands-on labs and expert instruction.
Students who attempt to study for the PMP exam on their own have a much lower first pass success rate than those students who take a PMP exam prep course, PMP boot camp, or an online PMP training class.
