What are the different training courses available?

Project Management Institute has a range of project management certification exams that are aimed at people at different stages of their project management career. From just starting out to leading a portfolio, the PMI exams evidence that you are capable of doing a professional job at all levels.

The PM PrepCast offers training courses to support your journey towards gaining 3 of those PMI certifications:

  • PMP
  • CAPM
  • PMI-ACP.

PMP: The PM PrepCast

The PM PrepCast is a complete PMP exam prep course. Watch 35 hours of high quality, engaging videos presented by Cornelius Fichtner, PMP. It’s fully updated to the current PMP exam content outline and covers all the content you need to feel confident with both the predictive, Agile and hybrid aspects of leading projects.

You’ll also get a certificate for 35 contact hours to use for your PMI application.

CAPM: The PM PrepCast for CAPM

The PM PrepCast for CAPM is a fully-featured online course specifically aimed at students studying for CAPM. It covers all the tools, techniques, skills and knowledge you need to know in order to pass the test.

This training has been designed from the ground up to work as an online course: you’re not watching something that has been rehashed from a live class. You’ll also get a certificate for 23 contact hours, essential for applying for the exam.

Perfect for: People at the beginning of their project management career, people who want to demonstrate their project management knowledge but don’t necessarily need an advanced credential.

PMI-ACP: The Agile PrepCast

The Agile PrepCast is our best-in-class video training lessons covering all aspects of agile practice, aligned to the exam content outline.

You’ll also get a certificate for 21 contact hours so you can quickly move on to your exam application and passing the test. This is an all-in-one course, so you won’t need to make time to read the 12 recommended agile books on PMI’s reading list!

Perfect for: Agile practitioners, digital project managers, Scrum Masters

Bundled Courses and Exam Simulators

A large part of passing any exam is knowing the syllabus and having a deep understanding of the project management concepts being tested. However, we know from experience that the majority of our students benefit from exam practice too. A PMP study plan should cover both of these: building the knowledge required to understand and apply the principles and being able to use that knowledge under exam conditions.

It’s one thing to have mastered the content. It’s quite another to be able to answer complex multiple choice questions against the clock using unfamiliar software.

That’s why we also offer exam simulators for each of the certification exams. The PMP exam simulator, for example, is the perfect way to get comfortable with the user interface of the testing software and the timing required to make it through all the questions before the countdown runs out.

The most cost-effective way to access the exam simulators is to purchase them alongside your PMP prep course or another training program, by choosing one of our bundles.

Choosing the right training package for you

Students tell us that there are a number of factors that influence what PMP online course they eventually end up buying. Here are five of the key themes that come out time and time again:

  1. Overall price
  2. Value for money
  3. Time commitment
  4. Delivery method
  5. Proven results.

1. Overall price

Unsurprisingly, price is a major factor in what courses people choose. Nielsen’s research shows that 73% of consumers have seen a shift in their finances, so it’s natural that the cost of a product is a consideration.

Let’s be honest, if your company isn’t funding your training, it is important to choose a product that is within your budget. The price of training is influenced by a lot of things, and companies who offer live courses have to pay for premises, tutors, accommodation, travel and more.

Choosing an online course that is pre-recorded so you can watch in your own time means you can go for an option that is lower cost, as the training company has lower overheads.

2. Value for money

Price is important, but what students tell us is more important is value. The cheapest course might not offer you enough contact hours to support your exam application. It might not come with supporting materials or a dedicated help team behind the scenes ready to assist if you hit a problem.

Worse, the content of a cheaper course might be lower quality than you were expecting, leaving you feeling like you are not ready to face the exam. Use a reliable source of free PMP exam questions and then if you are happy with the quality, check out the other paid products from the provider.

Our courses are prepared by professional, certified project managers with years of experience. They are recorded to a high quality, professionally produced and hosted in an industry-leading learning management system so you can track your progress and make your experience seamless. You’ll definitely feel like you are getting value for money – and more importantly, you’ll feel ready to take, and pass, the exam.

3. Time commitment

Another consideration for many people is how long you have to spend studying. Who wants to dedicate many hours to a concept that is given the briefest of mentions in the PMBOK Guide Seventh Edition?

If you can’t take time off work to attend a classroom course, a PMP course online is an efficient way to make the most of the time you do have. There’s no travel required, and you can study around you and your family’s schedule.

Online courses typically require 40% to 60% less time to cover the same material than learning in a classroom.

Our PMP, CAPM and PMI-ACP courses are all available on demand. Even better, they have been extensively reviewed to make sure you’re getting a streamlined, efficient learning experience. The courses cover what you need to know, without any fluff or padding. Each short lesson is a step closer to knowing exactly what you will be tested on.

4. Delivery method

The big question for most students used to be: where’s my closest classroom course? These days, we’ve noticed a trend towards students asking themselves a different question instead: live or recorded training?

The shift to online learning had been coming for some time, but the mass requirement to work from home during the worst of the coronavirus pandemic in 2020/21 has meant companies and individuals now see online as the default. While online is a given, there are various ways to attend PMP certification training.

If you love the buzz of working with others and the immediate feedback of having a tutor who can answer your questions, then a course with live delivery would suit you well. If you have to fit your study around your work and personal life, or you prefer reflection and the ability to go over a subject several times if you need to, then an on demand, recorded video course would be a good fit.

Accessible on any device with internet, our high quality recorded training means you can maximize your study time by learning in bite-sized chunks, whenever you have the time and whenever it suits you.

5. Proven results

Finally, take a look at what people are saying about the training. Your goal is to pass the PMP exam, so you need a course that will help you achieve that objective. A good way to judge a course’s quality is to check out the Google reviews and customer testimonials. Look for social media comments and feedback, and see how responsive the supplier is to queries.

Pass rates are another consideration. Not all companies publish their pass rates, but if you can find that information it can help you decide if the product is a good fit for your goals. The number of students using the material is also a good metric as it shows the company has been in business a long time and has built up a good reputation.

Extras and bonuses

Who doesn’t like a bonus? Students on our PMP training course get a few extra special surprises as part of their learning package including access to our student forums where they have direct access to experts, our unique Live Feedback feature, an email course with helpful exam prep tips and more. We also offer amazing support to all our students.

Take a look at what’s included in your training package and make sure you fully understand what you’ll get for your investment.

Get a recommendation

One other consideration is recommendations and student reviews. Read an exam prep guide and get a feel for what worked for other students. Many of them will have the same or similar experiences to you, and it’s good to see how other people used study materials to their advantage.

Look for advice from people who have passed their project management certificate and can tell you what really worked during their studies.

In summary…

When you are preparing for your online PMP exam, it’s important to feel confident in the materials that are supporting you. Take your time to review the different PM PrepCast packages and choose an option that is the right one for the exam you are taking, the time you have, your budget, and the amount of support you feel you need with sample questions and mock tests.

Whatever you choose, we recommend taking a look at the PM PrepCast exam simulator. Why not sign up for a free trial so you can see how it works? For many of our students, it’s the secret sauce that helps them get through the test with flying colors. It could do that for you too, so check it out!

Our support team is here to help if you have any questions about what product is the best fit for your PMP training.
