This web page is dedicated to informing visitors about TheCourse for Project Management. Upon certification as PMPs, our students who were registered by our higher-education associates receive permanent registration to learn and earn professional development units to maintain your certification. It is the next best alternative to a degree in project management, and in one respect, it is better. Project management is a dynamic subject, and fifth-edition Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge alone introduced more than 20 new technical terms. Future editions will no doubt bring more, and we intend to keep up. See a list of the contents of TheCourse online library.
This 2-minute presentation describes how TheCourse became the predominant project management certification prep course throughout the US Government and higher education in the US since 2002
Project Management Institute pre-requisites for project management certification.
TheCourse consists of sixteen three-and-a-half hour segments. Classroom courses are usually conducted over eight weeks, one day per week. Project Management Institute registers both the classroom and online versions at 56 hours, and requires candidates for Project Management Professional certification to have a minimum or 35 hours course work in project management subjects.
See TheCourse syllabus. Our online course material is developed using Adobe Captivate. Our workbooks for online students include the script for the voice content. Classroom students also have access to the online version, which serves as backup when a student misses a class, and/or for review.
This demo is a section from the actual online course material. It may be the most informative content of this information page.
One of the components of TheCourse is our test engine and question bank, which can be downloaded and installed in your Intel-based PC. (Sorry, we do not yet have a Mac version. The question bank is also available via your browser.) It contains 671 questions with answers and citations. It is intended to serve as a learning tool rather than as an examination.
All students have up to one year to prepare for and pass the PMP exam. Upon certification, those registered by our higher-edication associates are eligible for registration in PDUs Forever at no cost, giving them access to tutorials to continue to learn and earn Professional Development Units (PDUs), required to maintain their certification. Prior to estabishing this program, some of our former students paid us $595 each three years to take the next edition of TheCourse to earn 56 PDUs. No more.
