PMP® / CAPM® Preparation Workshop

Become PMP® or CAPM® certified and gain a qualification that is accepted worldwide. This intensive short-course prepares you for the examination.

Course Overview

The primary aim of this course is to provide project managers wishing to write the PMP® or CAPM® exam with a structured preparation forum and a mutual network of support.

The sessions are structured so that specific areas of the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide), which forms the basis of both exams, are covered comprehensively.

The Project Management Institute (PMI)® is an independent body that develops and promotes standards of practice within the project management industry. PMI® provides certification of project managers as part of its role in setting industry standards for the profession. The aim of PMI® certifications is to provide assurance that a person delivering project services meets independently verified standards of practice.

In South Africa, as elsewhere, the ability of individuals and organisations to offer PMP®-backed project management services is a competitive advantage in a rapidly growing market. In order to assist professionals in distinguishing themselves from their competitors, FTI provides this structured exam preparation  course based on the PMI® standards and other publications
