PMP Prep


With over 700,000 Project Management Professionals worldwide, the Project Management Institute’s certification program is now a standard across all industries. Becoming a certified Project Management Professional (PMP)® involves meeting certain education and experience requirements, and passing a 200-question exam. (PMP Certification Handbook from PMI.)


The key to passing the exam is to understand the Project Management Institute’s (PMI) view of project management.  This means reviewing and understanding PMI’s Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide), but also becoming familiar with how PMI expects project managers to apply that knowledge.  In most cases, this requires PMP-candidates to become familiar with new concepts during their PMP exam preparation, and/or to “unlearn” practices that they have picked up over the years.


This course provides a solid PMP prep foundation – we present and explain all the concepts you need to know.  While other PMP training courses focus on last-minute cramming to prepare you for the exam, we assume you actually want to actually learn something from your PMP education.  No pre-reading is required before taking our course, but you should be prepared to study the materials we provide – it’s a closed book exam.


Who should take this PMP Certification Prep course?


Course participants should be familiar with the certification process, and meet the PMP experience requirements prior to attending.  You should also be reasonably familiar with modern project management techniques, as advocated by PMI, and be planning on sitting for the exam within a couple of months of completing this course.

    Ralph did a great job. He made sure lessons were not rushed, and were understood. I would definitely recommend Key and Ralph. I am definitely more confident about passing the PMP exam.

    I researched different PMP preparation Boot Camps and saw that Key Consulting’s was designed to be taken early in your preparations not right before your exam. In talking with Kevin it made sense for me as an experienced PM to take his Boot Camp early in my studies. That proved to be a huge plus in preparing for the exam. I knew what to focus on. I had been studying the RMC book and the PMBOK in a linear fashion, but during the course I saw where I had wasted some time. Kevin’s materials were a tremendous help during the boot camp. After the boot camp, in my final week of preparation, the Key Concepts and Summaries at the end of his 3 ring binder were awesome in helping me focus on subjects where the test questions identified I was weak. I passed the test the first time with about 120 hours of studying including Key Consulting’s Boot Camp. Kevin’s instruction and materials and the fact I took the boot camp early in my studying saved me a HUGE amount of time.

    I took the PMP Prep Boot Camp course because I was having trouble preparing for the exam: it had been years since I self-studied for an exam, and the demands of work and home were making it hard to set a routine. The Key course follows the RMC text and lays out the concepts more clearly than reviewing the PMBOK Guide. The course gave me the tools I needed to successfully study and pass the exam. I would recommend the class to anyone who needs a framework to follow.
