Live Project Case Study: The trainer will use a special case study approach to relate the project management concepts with the real world. The participants will first be provided with the project background, to enable them to have sufficient context. Participants will then be able to analyze and interpret the case study in the context of the PMP topics

Day 1 & 2: The trainer's first objective is to establish a strong foundation on project management, for you. During this period, you will be able to relate with and understand all the key concepts of project management, across the 10 knowledge areas and the 5 process groups. This includes important documents, theories, best practices and techniques for each area. Based on your experiences, you can discuss the ways in which you do certain project management activities, to figure out if this aligns with the PMP way. The best way to learn is by discussing your work examples.

Day 3: The trainer now visits all the knowledge areas again, from a PMP perspective. The inputs, tools, techniques and outputs are explained in a simplified manner. Also the trainer covers typical PMP scenarios that you would face in the exam, and how to address such questions.

Day 4 :starts with an orientation to the topic of "Professional Responsibility", which every PMP (and PMP aspirant) needs to abide by. This is followed by a 2 hour mock exam, and finally the feedback on the answers, to understand the reason behind each answer. To conclude the trainer guides you on how to prepare for the exam, based on your scores in the mock, and your work profile.

After completing the 4 day program, you can take advantage of the power-packed booklet "Cracking the PMP®", which provides you with a huge number of tips and tricks for passing the exam. You can also continue assessing your readiness at each stage, by taking the 3 additional mock exams provided in the kit.

With's training approach and content, it is likely that you will be successful in the PMP exam. However, in case you are not able to pass the exam, you can come back and attend the training, without paying any additional fees. Here is how it works:

1. The offer is applicable for individuals that had attended the 4 day PMP classroom training from

2. The participant will be eligible for the offer if he/she took the PMP exam within 3 months of the training end date, and has discussed with the trainer prior to scheduling the training. Note that the longer you delay, the more difficult it gets.

3. The participant will need to reuse the training content provided in the first training program.

4. The participant will be accomodated in the next available batch.

5. The participant will need to provide the results of the PMI PMP exam, so as to guide him/her better.

6. The participant will be eligible for this offer only once.

The reason does not do a 100% guarantee is because it is not ethically correct, or practically possible for anyone to guarantee this. Some institutes that mention a guarantee, are only assuring that in 100% cases, you will get your training fee back. No one has any influence on the assessment system or result, to be able to guarantee 100% will pass the exam. Despite this, ensures that a "go ahead" is given for the exam only to those that are ready from a preparation perspective, as assessed by the trainer.

Q. Do you guarantee that I will pass the PMP?

A. Actually, no one can 100% guarantee that you will pass the PMP, but what does guarantee is that he will cover the entire scope of the PMP course, answer all your queries, ensure that you have understood all the topics. Beyond that, whether you pass or not will depend on your extent of studies, how you use your experience for the answers, your speed of reading, your level of practice, especially for numerical questions, and last but not the least, time management.
