It can be hard to find a good PMP®️ course.
Self-study complemented with an eLearning course is a viable course of action. The challenge is in finding a good course -- one that makes the material in The PMBOK® Guide come to life and make sense and strike you as compelling and relevant to your work. That is hard to do, and we've managed to do it. Let's face it: The PMBOK® Guide is not exactly a casual light read.
Our PMP 6th edition eLearning course replicates the experience of our classroom course as closely as possible. We’ve taken the time to include material that is not covered in The PMBOK® Guide, but which can be expected on the PMP exam. We've done significant research study to support our treatment of select management theories, quality concepts and procurement concepts. This 'additional material' is also valuable from a practical applications perspective. Working through our course, you will feel lightbulbs lighting-up over and over as we strike cords of relevance to your actual project management work environment. With our course, it is not just about getting the PMP certification, it is about becoming a more confident and effective project manager.
The result is a self-paced eLearning course optimized for efficient preparation to take and pass the PMP certification exam.
The course also includes:
Downloadable PDF file with all of our ‘Secret Sauce’ diagrams
Access to our student portal with the interactive ITTO Drag & Drop exercises
Deck of suggested flashcards
Weekly remote study group sessions where you can ask questions as we review a different topic each week
Certificate of completion which documents the 35 hours of project management training required for the PMP
What does the course itself look like?
Each topic module consists of about five short video segments (4 to 8 minutes each) showing slides with voice-over. That’s Bill’s voice, speaking naturally, as he would in the classroom, as opposed to sounding like possibly clueless ‘voice talent’ reading a script — which is too often what you’ll find in other’s computer-based eLearning courses.
Another thing that make our lectures especially valuable is the unique visual perspective provided in our slides, which provides rich context that facilitates comprehension and retention. In other’s eLearning courses you may find stock photos of shiny rotating gears and such… eye candy with no educational value whatsoever.
After the lecture portion, each topic module includes ~ 20 practice questions, which we have written with great care to reinforce important concepts and to be representative of what you might see on the PMP exam itself. Various tricks and traps you might see on the exam are included and then examined within the detailed explanations that follow each question.
Knowing vs. parsing
When you miss a practice question it might be because of a gap in understanding of the PMI framework, or it might be a failure to navigate the subtleties of the question successfully. Part of what we teach you is how to parse the question and the various answer choices to get to the best choice. Knowing the content is one thing… parsing of answer choices is a whole different skill. You must master both to do well on the PMP exam. Our course can equip you, but buying it is not enough: you need to plow through it, and follow the rest of our study guidance as well.
The good news is that our questions are written in an engaging way so that you won’t feel bored to tears. We weave-in some story lines, and include a little humor in some of the answer choices to keep you engaged and productive in your studies. We also make the subject matter feel relevant in the real world, which also helps with engagement. You’ll find student course reviews here.
The weekly remote study group sessions also help with engagement. The weekly cadence of accountability really helps students impose some discipline on themselves. This is critical — it all comes down to your study discipline in the end.
Our PMP course modules can also be purchased individually for just $16 each. Details here.
Live Virtual classes
We do not offer 'Live Virtual Classes'. We thrive on the magic that happens in the classroom course setting -- working eyeball -to- eyeball with our students. The 'Live Virtual Classroom' experience does not create any of this magic. It is no fun for the instructor, and we feel that it is a poor value solution for the student. While 'Live Virtual Classrooms' are a big trend, we decline to participate in this approach. Our remote study group sessions are the closest thing we have to this, and those are included for free with our self-paced eLearning course.
