PMI Project Management Professional (PMP) Certification Prep

The PMP credential is globally recognized and demanded. It demonstrates to employers, clients, and colleagues that a project manager has the knowledge, experience, and skills to bring projects to successful completion. A PMP is recognized for the ability to lead and direct projects. PMPs routinely earn a higher salary in the workforce than non-credentialed project managers.

Earning the PMP credential includes passing a rigorous 200 question examination, which means preparation is key. 35 hours of formal education is required even before applying for the exam. Thousands of hours of documentable project management experience are also required.

Instructor, Joe Matthews, PMP holds a Master of Organization Development from Bowling Green State University and has more than 15 years of experience managing manufacturing and construction projects. Working closely with the Project Management Institute’s Western Lake Erie Chapter, Joe supports your efforts to apply for the examination in addition to preparing to pass it.
