PMP® Exam Preparation

You are here


If you are preparing for the Project Management Professional (PMP®) designation examination, you should attend our intense preparation course.

This course has been offered from Hong Kong to Tehran and Lagos, and from Victoria to St. John’s. With its sister courses CAPM® Exam Preparation and The Comprehensive PM Seminar, it has been preparing candidates for the PMP exam longer than any other provider in Canada. The course is a registered program with the Project Management Institute (PMI®).

This course is an intense review of exam material; it is not intended as a stand-alone project management course. It is 5 days long but is often delivered in a 4-day version in-house for organizations. The 5-day version fulfills PMI’s® pre-requisite of 35 training hours.

Procept has a PMP® Preparation Practice Spreadsheet that has proven to be an invaluable tool to aid with the completion of the exam application. This tool is also very helpful for those who don’t yet have the required hours but would like to track of their hours of experience in the format required on the exam application.

The knowledge areas are presented in modules. At the beginning of each module, there is a practice pre-test before the presentation of the course material which is followed by realistic, challenging, multiple-choice questions. During the review of the practice questions, the instructor explains how to arrive at the correct answer. The course provides many exam tips and test-taking techniques, 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.



  • A PDF study guide to help you read through the PMBOK® Guide in advance of attending the course will be provided via email
  • Course workbook
  • Farndale’s PMP® and CAPM® Preparation Guide with 299 sample questions
  • Our own PMP® Exam Simulator
