Project Management Professional PMI certification course


proPM-P is your gateway to the PMP® Certification. It offers a first-class opportunity to prepare yourself for the Project Management Professional ® certification.

  • access to the official PMI Training material called “PMI® Authorized PMP® Exam Prep” for which you will provide with a digital access key to redeem this material
  • experienced, certified instructors
  • class discussions, activities, and case studies to bring the material to life in real project environments
  • access to a world-leading exam simulation tool – X-AM which includes about 1400 test questions.
  • optional digital learning tools and services

We provide individual advice and guidance based on your situation and experience level.

Our learning approach

Our courses are unique! proPM-P combines instructor-led training sessions with classical learning material and complementary digital learning tools. We focus on teaching best practices in Project Management. We have developed additional material, which while completely aligned with the PMI-provided student lessons, supplements, and complements to focus on the real challenges Project Managers have on a day-to-day basis. Lessons learned and sharing experiences plays a large part in our workshops.

The training is held in English, the trainers speak French and/or German.

Learning material

In line with PMI’s ATP training approach, each proPM-P participant will have access to PMI’s extensive “PMI® Authorized PMP® Exam Prep” containing a student handbook, videos, templates, checklists, and self-assessment tests.

Each particpant also receives the proPM-P Course Material: the electronically provided binder includes all slides presented by the trainer.

Each participant will also have access to our exam simulator X-AM PMP - an online learning tool which helps candidates:
• to learn, consolidate and revise subject matter by answering questions and reviewing explanations;
• to evaluate their knowledge level and to follow their progression by means of statistically stored performance measurement ;
• to practice for the exam under close-to-real conditions.

As an option, each participant can add a digital library of dedicated project management learning contents which treat the different certification topics in more details. This self-paced digital learning material will reinforce the learning and provide in-depth insights to important project management topics including Agile, social competences, etc.

The Learning journey

The public PMP certification preparation course is delivered in a blended learning format including an instructor-led trainings and a self-learning phase.

The journey starts with a virtual kick-off meeting, about one week before the first day of the training. Then follows a 4-day course with individual preparation work – split into 2 blocks of 2 days. The “All inclusive” package also offers distant coaching between the self-study phase and the classroom training.

The course is proposed in a hybrid format : face-to-face with the possibility to join in virtually.
