PMP Exam Preparation - Virtual Instructor-Led - Online course

Workshop Description

This 6-day, 12-sessions instructor-led online PMP Exam Prep program provides a detailed review of everything that participants need to pass the PMP exam. The material covers everything from completing exam application form, the 3 PMI new Domains, People, Processes and Business Environment, to actual tips on writing the exam and solving exam questions.

The workshop is delivered by Dr. Sami Fahmy of Performance Excellence Institute (PEII)

The workshops focus on PMI terminology and PMIisms as it relates to the 3 new domains: People, Processes, and Business Environment. The goal is to get participants ready for passing the exam from first trial.
