Training Overview

Since January 2021, all Project Management Institute-authorized Project Management Professional (PMP)® exam preparation courses have been based on the Institute’s materials and its CHOICE learning management system. If you have taken such a course, but have NOT obtained your PMP® credential, this PMP® refresher course is for you.

The PMP® exam is still based on the sixth edition of the Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide). It is also very much focused on how value is delivered. You might remember that only half of the PMP® exam will test your process knowledge. The rest will test your understanding of people – the role of the project manager, developing and managing the team and engaging with stakeholders – and the business environment.

Also, there is still a strong emphasis on agile project management, with roughly half of the questions having some sort of agile slant.

This two-day course will be based on the materials you received when you undertook your original Authorized PMP® Exam Preparation course. If you no longer have access to these materials, or the PMI learning management system, these will NOT be supplied as part of the PMP® refresher course.

However, you will have access to Velopi’s exam simulator to prepare for the exam, as well as our renowned support up to the exam itself.

No. Unless you meet the eligibility requirements, your application will be rejected.

The course is aimed at learners who have already attended a an Authorized PMP Exam Preparation course since January 2021.  It will provide a summary of the thirty-five topics that make up the five lessons of the PMP® curriculum. Topics that are very familiar to the class will be covered quickly, with more time spent on areas where people are having difficulties.

You should have attended an Authorized PMP® Exam Preparation course since January 2021.

Velopi’s courses are aimed at adult learners. We value the life experiences of our students and encourage everyone attending to contribute and to apply their existing experience to new situations.

At the start of each course, students will be provided with their instructor’s e-mail address and contact phone number. They are invited to make contact if they have any questions after the class.

If you attended a PMI Authorized PMP® exam preparation course since January 2021 and did not, for work or personal reasons, sit the exam, this refresher course is for you. It is also suitable for those who did not pass the PMP® exam on the previous attempt.

If you have taken a PMP® exam preparation class prior to 2021, using your training provider’s own course material, we strongly advise you to sign up for a new, authorized course, as the exam has changed so radically since that time.
