Course Description

The Project Management Professional (PMP®) is the gold standard of project management, boasting over a million certified professionals internationally.

Currently on its 6th edition, the PMBOK® Guide details the 49 processes necessary to cover the full implementation of a project, which according to the PMI will enable the certificate holders to earn up to 25% more over their competitors, and increase the success rate of project implementation.

The PMP® Certification can help your career in the following key areas:

It makes your CV stand out from your competitors

Gives you knowledge of a common global language

There is a large demand for certified Project Managers

As a member of the PMI you will have excellent networking opportunities

Entry Criteria

There are no formal requirements, but you’ll need a keen interest in the subject. You will also need to have 5 years’ experience leading a project, or 3 years’ experience for delegates with a University degree to sit your exam.


Throughout this course you will cover the 49 processes of the certification and discuss the breakdown of each of these into Inputs, Tools and Techniques and Outputs. This is achieved across five project phases: Initiating, Planning, Executing, Monitoring and Controlling, Closing.


The five phases span ten knowledge or subject areas, which are generally performed in the delivery of a project.

These are the areas of:

Integration management

Scope management

Schedule management

Cost management

Quality management

Resource management

Communications management

Risk management

Procurement management

Stakeholder engagement


The course includes exams which are invigilated online and you need to have access to an internet enabled device with a microphone and a webcam.

The PMP exam is not part of this course and learners must arrange the exam (payable by the learner) directly with PMI.

The PMI exam can be taken online via online proctored testing.

Full details of the examination, fees and the application process can be found at
