The Project Management Professional Certification Course (PMI-PMP*) includes a number of 28 sections that ensure you  a minimum of 40 PDU’s, from video lectures, quizzes, exercises and projects, for your Project Management Institute (PMI) Certification Exams covering the most relevant information in the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK6) developed by the Project Management Institute (PMI).

*Project Management Professional (PMP)® is is the gold standard of project management certification. Recognized and demanded by organizations worldwide, the PMP validates your competence to perform in the role of a project manager, leading and directing projects and teams.

1. Project Initiation and Planning. Projects are complex undertakings that require a high degree of coordination from start to finish. A lot goes into planning, getting the work done, monitoring progress, and finally, closing the project. In this course, you’ll learn what project integration management involves and why it’s important. Once you have an understanding of what’s needed to manage project integration, you’ll learn about the first two processes. These are what you use to create a project charter and develop a project management plan.

2. Managing Project Work. Most projects aren’t lucky enough to enjoy smooth sailing from beginning to end. Unforeseen events and difficulties usually crop up somewhere along the line. And these can steer a project off course. But don’t worry, in this course, you’ll learn how to direct and manage the work of a project. In addition, this course will show you how to monitor and control project work, to ensure work performance is in line with requirements. And how to leverage knowledge throughout the life cycle of the project.

3. Project Changes and Closing. It happens every time. Your customer or team members come up with great ideas during a project of how the product could be so much better if. But that can be a sure recipe for disaster. This course teaches you how to apply the perform integrated change control process. It also explains the closed project or phase process. Guiding you how to ensure product acceptance, tie up loose ends, and assess the project’s success.

4. Capturing, Analyzing, and Using Project Lessons Learned. Every project comes with its own unique challenges. There is valuable learning that takes place as project team members solve problems and persevere through challenges to meet their objectives. Lessons learned can serve a dual purpose. In this course, you’ll learn about the basic steps involved in collecting, analyzing, and passing on lessons learned, so that organizations are able to grow and experience superior performance.

5. Strategically Focused Project Management. As a project manager, your role is to ensure that each project starts out and remains in line with the company’s strategic goals and delivers expected value. In this course, you’ll learn about how to achieve that on your project from the creation of a project charter through closing the project. We’ll also discuss how to manage stakeholder relationships, with the goal of keeping their expectations in line with strategic goals.

6. Plan and Define Project Scope. So your project is all approved, and you’re ready to get started. What’s the first step? You need to figure out exactly what the end result is going to look like based on the customer’s needs. In this course, you’ll learn how to plan scope management for your project, use the collect requirements process to gather and refine stakeholders’ requirements. And then how to turn those into your scope statement with the defined scope process.

7. Create Work Breakdown Structure. This course focuses on a single process, the Create Work Breakdown Structure Process, or create WBS, as it’s called in the PMBOK® Guide. We’re going to talk about the role the WBS plays in planning, and how it’s used in control and reporting. You’ll learn about the important activities involved in decomposition to break down project requirements and deliverables in order to create a WBS. You’ll also learn about an important output of the Create WBS process, the scope baseline.

8. Validate and Control Scope. There are three priorities you’ll have as project manager. To make sure your projects meets stakeholder expectations and to make sure the project comes in on time and on budget. In this course you’ll learn about two processes that help you meet those obligations, validate scope and control scope. In validate scope, you formalize acceptance of the scope by all parties. And in control scope you manage changes to the scope baseline. Both of these processes are critical to project success.

9. Define and Sequence Activities. Okay, it’s time to talk schedule. After all, what project can run without a proper schedule, right? This course covers two key activities that you need to do when creating a schedule. The first is to identify the activities that will need to take place during the project. And the second is putting all those activities into a logical sequence that helps you create a schedule network diagram, which is the foundation of your schedule.

10. Develop the Project Schedule. In order to plan a schedule for anything, from a birthday party to a mission to Mars, you need to make an educated guess of how long the work is going to take, and then figure out the overall schedule. A huge part of your job as a project manager is to see that all the work happens at the right time. If it doesn’t, delays in one area can cause a domino effect that cascades through the remainder of the project. In this course, you’re going to learn how to estimate activity durations for your project, and how to develop the project schedule using those estimates.

11. Control the Project Schedule. It’s essential in successful project management to be able to monitor activities to discover and correct any schedule variances, evaluate the effective schedule changes on all project activities, and make adjustments as required to minimize risk on your project schedule. In this course, you’re going to learn how to apply useful techniques to control the project schedule to keep your project on track.

12. Creating a Project Budget. Let’s face it, at the end of the day, projects are really all about profit, no matter what kind of company you work for. Even if you work for a charitable organization or government, nobody wants to see a project lose money. That’s why developing a realistic budget and then managing it well is such a critical part of project management. In this course, you’ll learn what goes into a cost management plan, how to estimate costs, and how to establish a realistic cost baseline for your project.

13. Keeping Your Project on Budget. Establishing the budget for a project is a vital process in project management. Yet, it means nothing if the budget is not adhered to. Controlling project cost is critical to meeting a project’s budgeted targets. And monitoring cost performance can mean the difference between the success and failure of a project. In this course, you’ll learn about the control cost process. Including helpful techniques you can use to keep your project on budget.

14. Planning Quality Management. In today’s competitive world, customer satisfaction is paramount. It’s so important that meeting customer expectations is how we define quality. So the quality of a product isn’t about being 100% defect free or whether you think it’s perfect. It’s about whether the customer will be happy with it as it is. In this course, you’ll learn about the project quality management knowledge area and the plan quality management process.

15. Manage and Control Quality. A critical aspect of managing any project is managing the quality of processes and deliverables. Ultimately, a project will fail if it doesn’t meet quality requirements. In this course, you’ll learn how the manage quality process and the control quality process work together to help ensure that a project achieves the best possible levels of quality. Both in how work as carried out and in the end result.

16. Quality Methodologies and Standards for Project Management. Consistently providing high-quality products and services requires use of continuous process improvement initiatives and adherence to applicable industry standards. This course explains some of the most popular quality methodologies and standards that project management professionals use today. We’ll look at lean and six sigma, as well as some of the specific lean tools that are used for quality management and continuous improvement. We’ll also look at four different classes of quality standards, including the ISO standard.

17. Plan and Acquire Resources. Unless you plan to do all the work on your project yourself, you’re going to need to put a team together. That’s not as easy as it sounds. You have to have people with the right mix of skills and expertise to make up a high- performing team. You’ll also need to be able to identify and acquire all the resources you’ll need for project success. In this course, you’ll learn how to develop a resource management plan. In this course, you’ll learn how to develop a resource management plan. You’ll also learn best practices for estimating and acquiring necessary resources, developing and managing the project team, and optimizing resources throughout the project.

18. Develop and Manage Resources. Ask anyone who has worked in a project environment and they will tell you that team dynamics can make or break a project. A positive, constructive atmosphere can keep team members motivated and productive, while a negative atmosphere can have the opposite effect. Developing and managing effective teams is one of the primary responsibilities of a project manager. And controlling resources throughout the project lifecycle ensures that everything stays on track. In this course, we’ll explore the develop team, manage team, and control resources project management processes.

19. Plan and Manage Communications. Regardless of the nature of your project, you’re a bridge builder. That’s your job as a project manager. To build bridges between all of the stakeholders, both inside and outside your company. And communication is how you do it. It’s what you’ll use to keep everyone informed, engaged, and all pulling in the same direction. In this course, you’ll learn how to create a communications management plan. And then how to manage the flow of information in accordance with the plan.

20. Monitor Project Communications. Sometimes on projects, things don’t go according to the communications management plan. Stakeholders’ information needs might change or your team members find a better way to use technology to communicate with each other. Or maybe someone drops the ball and keeps forgetting to send you important status updates. It’s your job to monitor the flow of information and determine whether the plan needs to change or whether people’s actions need to change, so they comply with the planned approach for project communications.

21. Planning Risk Management. We face many risks during our lifetimes. Some people try to avoid risk by avoiding risky situations. For example, people who don’t fly because they’re scared the plane will crash. Most of us realize that if we dare to act wisely and take calculated risks, the rewards can outweigh the chance of negative consequences. Sure, airline accidents do rarely happen. But that beach in the Caribbean sure is nice in February. This is the first course in the series of courses on the project risk management knowledge area. We’re going to learn about how to plan for risks on a project to make sure that when negative things do happen, we’re ready for them.

22. Identifying Risk. When it comes to risk management, knowing what the risks are is half the battle. Once you know what is likely to go wrong, you can prepare yourself and protect your project from the effects of adverse events. That’s what the identify risks process is all about. In this course, you’re going to learn what inputs you need to look at in order to identify risks. And how to use several techniques, such as Data Analysis methods, like SWOT Analysis, and Assumption, and Constraint Analysis, to help you develop an effective risk register.

23. Analyzing Risk. All projects face a number of risks. There are uncertainties. You can’t know whether certain events will actually occur or exactly what impact they’ll have on the project. However, you can analyze project risks in terms of their possible impacts and probabilities. In this course, we’ll examine the two risk analysis processes of the project risk management knowledge area, namely, perform qualitative risk analysis and perform quantitative risk analysis.

24. Responding to Risk. Any project, big or small, faces risks. The way you manage these can determine whether the project makes or loses money. Successful risk management involves anticipating risks, preventing them where possible and planning how to deal with risks you can’t prevent. This course covers the final three processes in the project risk management knowledge area. Plan risk responses, implement risk responses and monitor risks. You’ll learn about some common risk response strategies and how to monitor and control risks as they occur.

25. Procurement Planning. Procurement management may not be the most flashy of all the project management knowledge areas, but it’s still pretty important. Procurement is all about obtaining the goods and services that you’ll need for your project. From purchasing raw materials, to contracting out specialties services you need to make sure the goods you buy are good quality. That they arrive when you need them. And that you maintain good relationships with your suppliers. In this course, we’re going to look at the plan procurement management process.

26. Procurement Management. Project success doesn’t depend just on how well the project team performs, it also depends on the reliable delivery of required materials, products and services from external sources. This is where the procurement management processes come in. In this course, you will learn all aspects of managing the procurement of contracted goods and services. From choosing suitable vendors and managing relationships with sellers, to monitoring procurement activities, and making changes and corrections when necessary.

27. Planning Stakeholder Engagement. You’ll likely manage many different types of projects during your career as a project manager, small ones, big ones, simple or complex. Regardless of the project, this one truth remains constant. Project success largely depends on a good working relationship between you and all the other stakeholders. This is the first course covering the processes in the project stakeholder management knowledge area. In this course, you’re going to learn how to determine who your stakeholders are, and everything you need to know about them. We’ll also talk about how to plan effective stakeholder engagement approaches for your project.

28. Managing Stakeholder Engagement. There are few project managers who aren’t familiar with the concept of financial value. In fact, the main purpose of business is the accumulation of value in the form of money, goods, or other tangible assets. But some project managers aren’t as familiar with the intangible value of relationships. Knowledge, access to information, connections, and goodwill. The process of developing and maintaining effective stakeholder relationships is called engagement. In this course, we cover manage stakeholder engagement and monitor stakeholder engagement, which are the third and fourth processes in the project stakeholder management knowledge area.
