PMP® Exam Preparation

PMP exam is changing July 1







Procept’s courses have been preparing candidates for the PMP exam longer than any other provider in Canada. In fact, Procept taught the first professional PMP Exam Prep course in Canada and is PMI’s first Registered Education Provider in Canada. This intensive course is approved by the Project Management Institute for preparing candidates for the PMP exam.

This course is an intense review of exam material to help prepare people to write the exam; it is not intended to teach people basic project management concepts. Prior project management training and experience is highly recommended to maximize candidates’ chances to pass the exam.

The PM knowledge areas are presented in modules. At the beginning of each module, there is a practice pre-test before delivery of the module’s learning components, include realistic, challenging, multiple-choice questions to test knowledge of the module topic and to simulate the types of questions on the PMP exam. During the review of the practice questions, the instructor explains how to arrive at the correct answer. The course provides many exam tips, test-taking techniques and study tips, but there are no gimmicks because there is no magic formula for passing the PMP exam: it requires appropriate professional PM experience, an intense preparation course, and commitment to prepare appropriately for the exam.

The course is delivered by trainers who have had extensive experience in professional project management and a long history of successfully preparing people for the PMP® exam. The instructors are experts at presenting content in an engaging manner, keeping the atmosphere positive, and empowering course participants as they prepare to challenge the PMP® exam.


Participants will gain practical skills to:

  • Identify the “correct” answer to a majority of multiple choice questions similar to the PMP® and CAPM® exams
  • Remember formulas and concepts through application to real-life scenarios instead of memorization.
  • Utilize “tips and tricks” to write the PMP® exam with more confidence.
  • Identify which knowledge areas may need further home study
  • Be aware of the PMP® and CAPM® qualification process
  • Further your knowledge of generally accepted project management practices


The PMP® Exam Preparation course is appropriate for individuals who have had previous PM training and are already familiar with project management processes. For most exam candidates, we recommend that you take our longer 6-day The Comprehensive Project Management Seminar. However, this shorter course is appropriate if you are already somewhat or largely prepared for the exam


  • 3-day Project Management Essentials (or its equivalent), or
  • You already work in a project management environment that manages project scope, cost, time, quality, etc.


Study KitA Pre-Course Study Kit with 183 practice exam questions, plus a sample study plan helping exam candidates organize and prepare their individual at-home study time.


PMP ManualA course workbook containing copies of all of the course slides, many sample exam questions, case studies, templates and checklists.
