Project Management

Don't put off your Project Management Professional (PMP)® or Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)® certification any longer! There's a great reason to make 2013 the year you earn your project management accreditation. The Fifth Edition of the PMBOK (Project Management Body of Knowledge) Guide® is targeted to be published in late 2012 or early 2013. Traditionally, this means the exams will be changed to reflect the updated standard in the middle of 2013. Now is the perfect time to prepare for your certification exam at College of DuPage.

Our exam preparation series kicks off in January 2013 and wraps up in mid-March. It will arm you with the knowledge and confidence required to finally get your project management certification before the updates to the exam.

Classes include Essentials of Project Management, Advanced Project Management and Project Management Professional (PMP®) Certification Preparation. Completion of all three of these classes will provide you with the 35 Professional Development Units (PDUs) required to obtain your PMP® certification.

The Project Management Institute (PMI) has seen a five-fold growth in membership in the last 12 years. Eighty percent of this growth is driven by the increased use of project managers in the IT and technology sectors. The PMI projects that 1.2 million project managers will be added each year through 2016. Highly experienced project managers can earn a median salary of $96,000.

What People are Saying

"Increasingly organizations are indicating PMP® certification is required, not just preferred. It is a career path that is growing in demand, and getting PMP or CAPM certification is a great way to accelerate your career goals. We have had participants in this series later tell us that certification played a key role in their finding a job or getting promoted." —Andy Kaufman, President, Institute for Leadership Excellence & Development Inc.
