PMP® Exam Preparation, an in-depth review course, is the second online course in this series after Project Management Essentials, offered by Purdue Online. This offering assumes you already meet the criteria necessary to qualify to take the exam. You must be an experienced project manager (minimum 3 years). Before you may qualify to take the PMP exam, the Project Management Institute (PMI) requires that you have at least 35 hours of project management education. This course assumes you are already familiar with the content of the PMBOK® Guide. If you feel like you need a refresher on the content of the PMBOK® Guide, taking the Project Management Essentials course first, is strongly suggested. Please visit the PMI website for details about PMI’s PMP exam prerequisites.

PMP Exam Preparation is a 100% online, self-study course based on the PMBOK® Guide. It includes a series of live webinars presented by your instructor for in-depth review of some of the most challenging learning material.
Enrollment includes 90-day access to all of the Purdue-developed course material, including lecture videos, worksheets/answer keys, and multiple test-taking tips and strategies. Purdue also provides complimentary 90-day access to the PMtraining™ online practice test website (a $59 value).
PMI’s PMP exam consists of 180 multiple-choice, multiple response, matching, hotspot and limited fill-in-the-blank questions. The exam is demanding and students must engage in independent study following the course to pass.
Only individuals who pass PMI’s PMP exam are officially certified as a Project Management Professional®. A certificate of achievement from Purdue University, however, is awarded to students who successfully complete the PMP exam prep course.
