Welcome, future PMPs!

TheCourse™ for Project Management

This web page is dedicated to informing visitors about TheCourse for Project Management, bringing with it 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.

TheCourse has been the predominant PMP prep course throughout the US Government and higher education in the US since 2002. This 2-minute presentation tells how that came about, and returns you to this page when it completes.

Online Information Session about project management is about 24 minutes long, plus download time.

Course Material

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 (PMI) registers both the classroom and online versions at 56 hours. PMI 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.

The Test Engine

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.) As this page is being developed, we are in transition from 4th-edition to 5th-edition. The fourth-edition question bank contained 670 questions with answers and citations. It is intended to serve as a learning tool rather than as an examination. This link takes you to a guide for using the test engine, which in turn leads to a download of the test engine, preloaded with 100 sample questions.

PMP Forever

All students have up to one year to prepare for and pass the PMP exam. Upon completion, they are automatically registered in PMP 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 extabishing 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. The site www.PMPForever.com is primarily a sales site to which prospective students responding to our marketing programs are directed. Please visit it.
