"Why take an instructor-led PMP® Examination Preparation Course from DBT Project Management?" is similar to asking the question, "Why not study electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, architecture, IT, or medicine online using an e-learning course, or learn by yourself at home on a computer, or better yet, who needs this PMP® certificate anyways?" The reason should be obvious. Most people want to learn something so they know something and can do something well, so they can hold down a good job, be successful, or maybe even be certified as a Project Management Professional (PMP®).
The only thing is that studying anything on the Internet, or on a computer at home can be very hard on a person and can lead to confusion or rebellion or a dislike of the subject. It is an attempt to try to learn which can cause problems, whereby the person often does not know the vocabulary or nomenclature of the training subject, and cannot easily ask questions or cannot be guided or corrected early by an instructor. What can this cause? Yes, problems! And the PMP® Examination is not the easiest examination in the world, I can assure you.
Passing the PMP® examination can be difficult. Why? There are many reasons for this, but suffice it to say that the examination is difficult because of the large amount of material which is expected to be known. And the way the examination questions are formulated, and the length of the questions, can make them difficult to understand, and difficult to answer.
After the founder of DBT Project Management (Dr. Bruce Turner, PMP®) took and passed the PMP® examination in 2005, he decided to help other persons who wished to obtain this highly-regarded project management certification. Dr. Turner has given numerous PMP® Examination Preparation Courses and enjoys helping people to pass the exam.
The PMP® Project Management Professional certification from PMI® is very broadly recognized throughout the world as the leading global certification of the project management profession. As of the end of 2018, there were over 1'200 persons in Switzerland and over 865'000 persons worldwide certified as a Project Management Professional (PMP®)
Obtaining this project management certificate has numerous advantages, both for the individual and for the organization in which he/she works. The PMP® training course offerred by DBT Project Management - which also includes training for the CAPM® examination - can lead to the project management certification of a client's project managers and team members and can help to improve the results and success of important projects due to the increased project management knowledge they now have at their disposal that can be used.
DBT Project Management has prepared and conducted numerous PMP® Exam Preparation Courses to help company employees in small groups and individuals (tutorial, one-on-one training) to pass the PMP® exam required for PMP® certification. We train (tutor) one person, or a small group of persons. The training courses normally take place at the client's location, or at another suitable location. The normal duration of the course is 35 hours, but it can sometimes take a little longer if you wish. The duration of the training can be adapted to the needs and requirements of the participants.
The primary purpose of this course is to prepare participants to pass the examination necessary for Project Management Professional (PMP®) certification with the Project Management Institute (PMI®).
The secondary purpose of this course is to prepare new project managers, project assistants and team members, or project managers who do not yet have the experience required to be eligible for the PMP® certification, but who wish to obtain the globally-recognized Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM®) certificate.
The target audiences for this training course are:
