    This Project Management Professional (PMP)® Certification Preparation Course thoroughly prepares students for the 6th edition PMI® certification exam, including both material in PMI®'s Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) and review of essential general management topics. The course systematically follows the path of a project through initiation, planning, execution, control and closing, encompassing the 49 processes described in the 6th edition PMBOK® Guide. Upon successful completion, a continuing education certificate for 35 contact hours (3.5 continuing education units) will be awarded.
