PMI serves practitioners and organizations with standards that describe good practices, globally recognized credentials that certify project management expertise, and resources for professional development, networking and community.

PMI offers a comprehensive PMP certification program for project practitioners of all education and skill levels. The PMP certification program demonstrates both your commitment to the profession and your expertise through certifying education, experience and competency. Rigorously developed by project managers, PMI certifications ensure that you and your projects excel.

As project management is one of the top skillsets demanded by organizations around the world, this is more important now than ever before. One-fifth of the world’s GDP, or more than $12 trillion, is spent on projects. And with many skilled practitioners leaving or scheduled to leave the workforce due to retirement — a trend the Society of Human Resources (SHRM) identifies as having a major strategic impact for 64% of organizations worldwide — there is a great demand for knowledgeable project managers

When these opportunities arise, certification helps make sure that you’ll be ready. There are already more than 460,000 PMI credential holders around the world and in every industry, from healthcare, telecommunications and finance to IT and construction.

Improve your project management knowledge and maximize your opportunity to successfully complete the PMP certification exam by participating in the PMI OVOC PMP Exam Prep Course. This course is 5 weeks in total and runs from 5:30PM - 9:30PM on Tuesday and Thursday, beginning April 8, 2014 and ending May 8, 2014. The total PMI OVOC course contact training time is 40 hours.  The course is based on the 5th edition of the PMBOK®.
