Overview

PMP (Project Management Professional) is a generic project management certification from PMI (Project Management Institute). A large part of the exam, but not all of it, is based on the PMBOK® Guide (A guide to the project management body of knowledge).

PMP is probably the best-known project management certification.

Description

The PMBOK Guide is an attempt to cover all types of management activity needed in projects. It goes through those needed for starting up, planning, executing, monitoring and controlling, and closing the project. From a different perspective, it covers various domains, such as time management, cost management, and risk management.

Following the path of the PMBOK Guide, the PMP exam covers the whole scope of project management activities as well. You need to have enough understanding of each aspect to succeed in the exam.

We are a Registered Education Provider (R.E.P.) of PMI, and our eLearning course is aligned with the latest version of the PMBOK Guide.

Normal classroom courses for the PMP exam are 5 days, but we had the opportunity to go deeper and make it easier for the learners by building a longer course: Our eLearning course is equivalent to a 7-day classroom course.

The course consists of 95 lessons. In short, the course provides everything you need to learn the topic and prepare for the exam. The first 30% of the course is free, and you can take it and see if it meets your needs before finalising your decision.

Besides the lessons, there are Integrated Flashcards throughout the course, and an exam simulator with more than 1000 questions. In short, the course provides everything you need to learn the topic and prepare for the exam. The first 30% of the course is free, and you can take it and see if it meets your needs before finalising your decision.

The course is divided into the following sections:

  • The big picture: In this section, we go through the whole scope of the PMBOK Guide without any details, to build a high-level understanding. You can use this overall understanding as a foundation for the next sections.
  • Process groups: In this section, we go through the whole content from a different angle and add more details.
  • Knowledge areas: When you reach this section, you already have a good understanding of the PMBOK Guide and you’re ready to go through it one more time, and learn all the details.
  • PMBOK Guide in Agile projects: There has been some additional content about Agile projects in the recent two versions of the PMBOK Guide, but they are isolated and sometimes confusing. That’s why we’ve removed them from the rest of the course and added this comprehensive section to tell you what Agile really is, and then to see how the PMBOK Guide can be applicable to Agile projects.
  • Closing: this last section is about final preparations for the exam.

Money-Back Guarantee

We want to be sure that you're satisfied with the course. If you're not, you can ask for and receive a full refund up to 30 days after your purchase, while you're in the first 30% of the course.

Who is this course for?

If you’re new to structured project management methods, it would be a good idea to start with PRINCE2 Foundation and then proceed with PMP, because PRINCE2 is a step by step guide to running projects and it’s easier to understand and practice. After that, the PMBOK Guide can help you make your activities more effective. Furthermore, preparing for and passing the PRINCE2 exam is easier and less expensive than PMP.

If you’re working in Agile projects and want to widen your knowledge, the AgilePM certification might be more relevant to you.

Requirements

You need to have 4,500 hours (with a bachelor’s degree) or 7,500 hours (without a bachelor’s degree) of experience in leading and directing projects, plus 35 hours of standard training before taking the exam.

The required experience doesn’t have to be as the project manager role, but has to do with project management and working with teams.

The standard training can be satisfied with suitable eLearning courses or classroom courses. It’s not mandatory, but PMI recommends taking the course with a Registered Education Provider (R.E.P.) of PMI, such as us; that would make the application process easier.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
