The American based Project Management Institute (PMI), with its regional centres throughout the world, offer an array of project management orientated certifications.

The Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM®) is designed to give newcomers to the world of project management, or similarly team members, recognition of their knowledge of the publication 'A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge’ (PMBOK® Guide); with particular emphasis on the terminology and principles used in this standard benchmark publication for project management good practices.

PMI CAPM PMP ComparisonPMIs Project Management Professional (PMP®) credential can only be considered by those with prior project management experience. As with the CAPM® credential, the PMP® is recognised worldwide but in addition shows employers and clients your competencies in leading and directing projects coupled with your depth of experience, skills and professional and social responsibilities.

PMI CAPM®

To learn something new is a challenging task, which, for maximum benefit, is best not attempted alone.

For you to gain the utmost advantage from this learning experience we have developed a series of workshops and training sessions which will help with both the test taking side and the educational side of project management.

For private/individual candidates you can ‘mix and match’ from: 

  • Workshops covering each of the individual subjects of the ‘PMBOK Guide®
  • Assistance and guidance with the application process
  • Hundreds of CAPM® style practice questions
  • Numerous short videos on some of the more complex syllabus areas

For businesses and companies requiring ‘in-house’ training then please contact us to discuss your requirements further.

PMI PMP®

PMP® certification is a challenge even for experienced Project Managers. The Bachelor’s degree and the 7,500 hours experience are the first steps, but for a successful pass delegates must be aware that the examination is not only based on information contained in the PMBOK® Guide.

Study of the publication 'A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge’ (PMBOK® Guide) on its PMI PMBOK Guideown is not enough to prepare for the examination; a thorough knowledge of the PMI's processes, an ability to apply key costing, estimating and scheduling formulas and an aptitude for applying best practices to a variety of given scenarios are also necessary.

Our workshops and training syllabus have been geared to step away from “the book” and think about applying the knowledge you have to varying situations. We can help you with the following comprehensive packages:

  • Assistance and guidance with the application process
  • Workshops covering each individual chapter of the ‘PMBOK® Guide’
  • On-line videos on some of the more complex ‘need to know’ subject areas
  • Hundreds of PMP® style practice questions
  • One-to-one training, with flexible times to suit you delivered via video conference or face-to-face

To match workshops and training to your individual needs please use our contact page to outline your requirements.
