    Project Management Professional (PMP)® courses

       'I really liked this PMP® course as it was delivered part time after work, and wasn't rushed like other intensive PMP® 4-5 day courses, I'm delighted I chose CMI'   Mark Hammond - Read more Reviews

    The PMP® Project Management Professional course is designed to help you build a successful career in project management and is one of the most sought after industry qualifications. 

    The PMP® or CAPM® Exam preparation course reflects the new PMBOK® Guide 6th Edition Guide released in Sept 2017.  

    To progress in project management it is essential that you chose the right course provider, that has significant experience and a track record in helping students deliver the best result, first time, every time.  For over 10 years, CMI® has been recognised as a leading authority in Project management education . CMI is recognized by the Project Management Institute (PMI)®   as delivering to the highest standards of project management training through its annual review and ongoing R.E.P. Registered Education Provider status. 

    A Unique approach, that gets you the result

    CMI's unique incremental approach to learning, allows you to apply what you learn each week over a 14 week timeframe.  This PMP®  programme deliberately avoids the intensive 'boot camp' 4-5 day approach which results in higher failure rates, additional repeat costs, poor retention and lack of integrated learning. CMI's incremental approach to learning, ensures you are well prepared to pass the rigorous PMP® test on first attempt. 

    Your journey to become a professional project manager using PMI® methodology starts and ends with this 4 month course. It is CMI's goal to take you carefully along every step of the PMBOK methodology through to completing the rigorous application and submitting to PMI.  Our course structure and students results speaks for itself.

    Application is Knowledge

    CMI integrates a practical QQI project as an option. The feedback from students on the project is overwhelmingly positive as it adds to the programme and your understanding of how PMI® methodology can be applied in the workplace.

    The PMBOK® Guide – Sixth Edition and Agile Practice Guide were created to complement each other. Together these two publications are a powerful tool that enable you to acquire the the right approach for the right project.The PMBOK® Guide Sixth Edition embraces agile in all aspects of project management; it has a section in each knowledge area where it elaborates how agile based approaches may tailor the processes discussed in given Knowledge Area and also elaborates agile practices for planning and monitoring. 

    Exam test simulator

    The popular CMI online exam test simulator supports your learning outside the classroom and allows you to attempt possible PMP® tests and get instant results. All of the questions reflect the latest combination and permutation of questions.
