The Project Management Professional (PMP ®) Exam Preparation course is designed to prepare students for the PMP ® Exam taken through the Project Management Institute (PMI ®). We are currently covering material in the 5th Edition Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK).

Penn State University is a Project Management Institute (PMI ®) Registered Education Provider (R.E.P.).  We are committed to enhancing the ongoing professional development of PMI ® Members, PMI-certified Project Management Professionals, and other project management stakeholders.

This 21-hour course will focus on not only the tools and techniques used to better prepare for the PMP ®  exam, but also the instruction surrounding the different types of methods and strategies on how to take the actual exam. The course will provide the necessary guidance throughout the entire process from applying for the exam, as well as what is required to keep the certification upon successful completion.

Penn State Great Valley's program offers only the highest caliber of instructors, who not only teach within the Project Management Certificate Program, but who come into the program having years of real-world experience. This expertise provides students with the knowledge and skills needed for success. 

Course Format

Methods used during this 21- hour course consist of: face-to-face lecture, classroom discussion, as well as simulated sample test question sessions. Students who have completed the prep course will be awarded 21 Professional Development Units (PDUs) which can be put towards the 35 hours needed to sit for the PMP ® Exam.
