      • Create key project management plan documents (e.g. Work Breakdown Structures, Statements of Work, and Scope Statements)

      • Form a plan for further education or self-directed training to ensure preparedness for the PMP® exam.

Target Audience

This class is intended to be taken by experienced project managers who have had previous formal education in project management. These candidates have completed the required hours of project management work as defined to make them eligible for taking the PMP® exam and are ready to review the best practices and prepare to take the PMP® exam. This class is not intended for candidates who are beginning their education in project management as a profession. For those who are just starting their careers, Learn iT! offers a variety of other, better choices for learning the concepts, tools, and techniques of effective project management.

This class is managed as an intense discussion using Rita Mulcahy’s PMP® Exam Prep, 8th Edition to guide questions, clarifications, cultural alignment to the test, and after-class work for the candidates. This class is not intended to have a didactic lecture format, but, instead, to foster a dynamic interaction among peers. This class will focus on in-depth conversations that are fueled by the richness of active participation and kinetic enthusiasm. There is no online version of this course.

Candidates who attend the Boot Camp are also provided with a subscription to Transcender, an online professional test-preparation service, in order to practice taking sample tests after the class. Transcender is a widely-known source for professional test preparation, though it is not used directly in the Boot Camp at all.  It is provided strictly for voluntary use by the candidates after they attend the class.

Course Objective: You will apply the generally recognized practices of project management that are acknowledged by PMI® to successfully manage projects. PMP® is a registered trademark of Project Management Institute, Inc.

Target Student: This course is designed for students with on-the-job experience performing project management tasks (whether or not they are formally acknowledged as project managers), but are not certified project management professionals. These individuals might or might not have received formal project management training in the past.

In summary, this course is appropriate for persons who wish to develop professionally, increase their project management skills, apply a formalized and standards-based approach to project management, seek career advancement by moving into a formal project manager job role, and are applying for the PMI® Project Management Professional (PMP®) Certification.
