The PMP is the gold standard of project management certification, and validates one’s competence to perform in the role of a project manager, leading and directing projects and teams. Passing the PMP or CAPM is a challenge and requires 60 to 80 hours of practice. This course will provide direction and strategies to be successful with passing the test.
