Purdue is dedicated to providing learners with world-class project management training in support of their personal and professional development. To this end, we have developed proprietary content available to learners through our online learning platform.

Enrollees in our Project Management Essentials and Project Management Professional (PMP)® Exam Preparation courses are required to purchase A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge, (PMBOK® Guide). Learners in the Agile Certificate Online Course will be required to purchase the Agile Practice Guide and Agile Project Management: 2 Books in 1. Learners can purchase the required text from any retailer. The cost of the books is not included in the course fee.

Learners who enroll in multiple courses in our project management series will receive a 10% discount on the total fee for the courses, as outlined below.
