Varsity Tutors provides a rigorous Phoenix PMP certification course that can help improve your self-confidence heading into the exam. PMP (or Project Management Professional) is an industry-recognized certification offered by the Project Management Institute. It can help you land a job, earn a higher salary, or simply prove that you have the expertise required to complete projects on time and on budget. In order to earn your PMP certification, you must pass a standardized exam.
There are two sets of prerequisites to sit for the test. If your education ended after high school or an associate's degree, you need 7,500 hours of practical experience directing projects. If you earned a four-year degree from a local educational institution such as Arizona State University - Downtown Phoenix Campus or the University of Arizona, you only need 4,500 hours of professional project management experience. Either way, you also need 35 hours of formal project management education before you can take the exam.
The PMP exam itself consists of 200 multiple-choice questions administered over a testing session lasting four hours. There are five "domains" covered on the exam: Initiating, Planning, Executing, Monitoring and Controlling, and Closing. Taking an online class allows you to incorporate all of these topics into your Phoenix PMP certification training. We thoroughly vet every instructor, so you can count on working with an excellent communicator with a deep understanding of project management. As a result, you can trust that all of the information you receive is correct and up-to-date.
For instance, if you have a hard time with risk management planning, you can learn several techniques for preparing for the worst while hoping for the best. Likewise, you can review remote team management if you frequently lead teams off-site. You can even answer sample questions to give you an idea of what the exam expects of you.
You can also learn test-taking strategies during your Phoenix PMP certification class. For example, many students have a hard time answering all of the questions within the time allotted to them. If your time management skills could be better, your instructor can teach you how to take an educated guess whenever you're unsure of the correct response so that you don't spend too much time on a single question. Likewise, your instructor can show you concentration techniques to help you maintain focus for the entire four hours. If you deal with test anxiety, you can even study meditation to help you soothe your nerves on test day.
Some students are leery of preparing for the exam in a group environment, but many find that sharing their classroom ends up making it easier to understand challenging concepts. Hearing a classmate's explanation of how something works may help you relate to it more than your instructor's take. You can also try to explain a concept such as project finance principles to one of your classmates to reinforce both of your understandings.
We also try to make our products as convenient for you as possible. We launch new courses monthly, so you never need to wait too long before getting started. We also offer multiple courses concurrently, including both two-week and four-week options that make it easier to find a fit for your busy schedule. All courses take place on our proprietary Live Learning Platform, an online classroom that allows you to see and hear your instructor as if you were in the same room, so asking for help is as easy as raising your hand.
Taking an online class can be a great way to take your Phoenix PMP certification training to the next level, but it's up to you to get the process started. Reach out to Varsity Tutors today so that a knowledgeable Educational Consultant can walk you through our convenient enrollment process!
