This course teaches the following concepts contained in A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge, (PMBOK® Guide) – Fourth Edition, Project Management Institute, Inc., 2008: the five process groups (Initiating, Planning, Executing, Monitoring and Controlling, and Closing), the nine knowledge areas (Integration, Scope, Time, Cost, Quality, Human Resources, Communications, Risk, and Procurement), process inputs and outputs, process tools and techniques, and professional and social responsibilities. The course is designed to help students prepare for the Project Management Professional (PMP®) exam. The course satisfies the educational requirement of 35 hours of project management education for the PMP® exam. However, it does not guarantee success on the PMP® exam (PMP and PMBOK are registered marks of the Project Management Institute, Inc.).
