The PMP / CAPM Exam Prep Workshop is a 40 hour class designed to prepare candidates to sit for and pass the PMP or CAPM certification exams. Experienced instructors holding the PMP certification guide participants through the material from the PMI Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®) 5th Edition. The workshop is intended to familiarize participants with the PMBOK model; it is not intended to be an introduction to project management.  Rather, the goal is to prepare students to pass the PMP / CAPM certification exams. The workshop is a service provided by the PMI-San Diego chapter to benefit prospective PMP holders.

Classes held on Saturdays 9:00 AM to 5:30 PM beginning on March 5th, 2016 and ending on April 2nd, 2016. No lunch will be served during the class. Registration accepted with payment only. Registration starts January 8th, 2016 and closes March 4th, 2016 or when sold out at 20 students.

You are not required to take this Exam Prep Workshop before the exam. The workshop prepares individuals to take the PMP or CAPM exams, but does not guarantee that any individual will pass.  Please direct all inquiries to the Director of PMP Exam Prep at [email protected]
