Typically at the top of the Dice Top Ten pay-boosting certifications is the PMP! Having a PMP® Certificate can bring a salary premium of (typically) $5-15 per hour. That's 10 to 30 thousand dollars a year! Are you leaving that money on the table? In some cases, you can't even apply for the job without a PMP® Certificate - a trend becoming more common in the Financial, Health, and other regulated industries. They need the assurance of expertise you bring with an internationally recognized Professional Certification.
Our course is based on the latest PMBOK® Guide version (v5) PLUS we will cover additional Agile concepts that will be in version 6. This is an INTENSE 3 day session (yes, there will be homework). There are 10 knowledge areas and 5 process groups within which are defined 47 processes in the Project Framework, and various formulas, Earned Value Management, and forecasting. With the techniques we will teach you, by the end of the class you will draw the Framework and formulas from the knowlegde you have gained. The average preparation time for the exam is about 80 hours. Our course, providing about half, will lay the foundation upon which you can logically build an authoritative knowledgebase to pass the exam. You will learn, understand, and be able to apply:
* The Project Management Framework
* The five (5) Process Groups
Initiation - Planning - Execution - Monitor and Control – Close
* The ten (10) Knowledge Areas
9.0 Human Resources
11.0 Risk Management
13.0 Stakeholder Management
* Project Management Ethics
Our senior instructor, a PMP® of course, has 30+ years' hands on Project Management experience with Silicon Valley companies and domestic and foreign government agencies - Cisco, NetApp, Symantec, SanDisk, Government of Singapore, USN, USAF, Yahoo, Wells Fargo, McGraw-Hill, Safeway, and more. Nothing beats an instructor with a breadth of real world experience to draw on!

Want a re-take? No charge!
Then, there is what separates the ICG Certification Prep School from the others. FIRST - you don't have to fail an exam attempt to "qualify" to retake our course - ALL ICGPM students can retake their course within six (6) months (space permitting). There is a lot of content in the PMP® exam and some students just feel more comfortable attending the course twice. No problem! Then again - stuff happens. You may not get to take the exam when you planned to. No worries. You can retake all or part of the class to re-prepare at no additional charge, just check with us first to be sure there is an available seat.
35 Contact Hours Training Certificate - When complete, you will receive a certificate of completion for the contact hours of PM training as required for your PMI® exam qualification credentials. If you have a PMI® account (it's free to sign up) we will register the training directly with the PMI® for you!
Scrum Master Certification - In addition to learning the wealth of knowledge for the PMI PMP Exam, students will also be qualified to take the International Scrum Institute (ISI) Scrum Master Accredited Certification Exam! ISI has examined and certified over 340 thousand Scrum Practitioners in 143 countries world wide. (Sorry, math, ISI - 340k members, Scrum Alliance - 130k members.) The training you need to pass, and the exam fee (you will be given a login and access code) are included with your enrollment and successful completion of the course.
Six Sigma Certification - Agile stresses adaptive, flexible, lean processes to accomplish work efficiently and quickly, maximizing Business Value and you'll find more "Agile like" questions on the exam in the future. Six Sigma is the basis for continous and lean process improvement, and this course integrates the methods of the Six Sigma Green Belt certification track (DMAIC). But not just for Agile! Continuous improvement is one of the basic goals of traditional project management too. With this course, you will earn your Six Sigma Green Belt certificate (exam fee is included).
BONUS - Agile Practices - 14 contact hours training certificate in Agile practices towards PMI-ACP credentials!
