Project Management Institute

Whether you are a current Project Manager, or interested in getting into the Project Management field, a Project Management Institute (PMI®) credential can give you an instant advantage in the marketplace. PMI credentials certify your understanding of, and competence in, the PMI Project Management Framework, and show that you know how to define business expectations, determine and provide project status measurements and are able to drive empowerment across multiple business units.

The College of Business and Illinois Business Consulting at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign can help you obtain the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM®) or the Project Management Professional (PMP®) certification from PMI. This exam preparation course uses innovative techniques to help you successfully pass the certification exams for either of these two, highly-desired, PMI credentials. In addition, this course will also provide you with the project management education hours required by PMI for obtaining these credentials.

The Project Management Professional (PMP®) Certification Exam Preparation Course will prepare you to successfully complete either the Project Management Professional (PMP) exam or the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM®) exam.
