The study material and training method follows the exam format and covers all the required areas of expertise. This program will prepare you to think the PMI way and covers the most useful test-taking strategies for the PMP® exam. The course ends with an exam simulation.  The support you can expect from your PMP® trainer is not only based on an intensive seminar, he will also give you answers to any questions that may arise during the application process and assistance if needed right up to the examination date.  Attending this seminar will reinforce your knowledge, build your confidence level, develop your exam writing skills and make you walk into the exam fully prepared for success.
