A certification. An engaging, instructor-led classroom. Comprehensive preparation. And as much fun as a prep class can get while making certain you succeed.
Working around your busy work schedule, The Crowd is offering a summer PMP Exam prep course outside the normal work hours, without overwhelming your time, yet compacted enough to get your studies focused, driven, and ultimately successful.
Only $2000 ~ Even less, if you register early or are a Microsoft employee, vendor, partner, or similar... hundreds of $ dollars $ less!!
Intersted in achieving Project Management Professional (PMP) status?
Not wanting to go way out of your way to make it happen?
Not wanting to take time off work and without giving up all your weekend time?
Prefer the benefits of classroom setting encompassing some of the other great minds taking on the challenge of achieving PMP certifcation?
Wanting to learn from others, as well as from an instructor with a successful track record?
We are running a special Project Management certifcation exam prep course around your busy schedule. Careful not to extend the preparation time too far; and not overly intense as our typical, grueling 5 day "Boot Camp". Best of all, no days off work are required. Beyond saving up to almost $1,500 on the course fee, you save yourself from taking off work or travelling far distances and paying for travel.
To handle this balancing act, we are scheduling one evening a week + a full day on the weekend every week. Three weeks of T/W (3) evenings and Two (2) all day Saturdays [a third day half day for a complete four hour practice Final PMP Exam that can be independently scheduled for another time, if needed].
Like attending a college course, the Tuesday and Wednesday evening classes are from 5:30 to 8:30 in the month of April and May. For two straight all day Saturdays, we dedicate ourselves to the pursuit of knowledge and PMP success. Going from 8:30a to 5:30p during the first Saturdays of April 27 and May 4. Then a half day morning the final Saturday, May 11, for a full practice PMP final exam. Nine sessions in all with a full PMP final exam to guage your progress.
Over 35+ hours of in class, live instructor-led training. The course fulfills/counts towards PMI's 35 Hour Project Management requirement for the PMP Application.
We have found this flexible schedule very successful for PMP preparation. A balance of in class lecture, engaging discussion, classroom based activities and case studies, and test taking practice in class; with the off time to reflect, read, and other expansion activites outside of class. Also balances your commitments to work with your investment in studying and passing the PMP exam.
All the class sessions are to be held in Redmond near or on Microsoft campus. This is to support many of the professionials from Microsoft enrolled in the course.
The class size is limited to 20 participants. Many of those slots are already filled. Acceptance is based on "first come-first served" basis. ALL previous session have sold out.
The PMP Exam Prep Course is also Sponsored by MySource Consulting based in Edmonds, WA. MySource Consulting has graciously offered to extend a generous discount. To learn more about MySource Consulting and their offerings, visit: www.mysourceconsulting.com
Our former students' praise is our biggest advertisement - and only form. There is a lot of praise for The Crowd's courses. It makes us blush, but it is most reassuring evidence to you that you are selecting the best class for you. We understand how important it is for you. Hearing it straight from others who took the course is the most reassuring assessment one could ask for. So feel free to ask us for some referrals. We have lots and love to share.

MORE About PMP:
The PMP certification exam is the most highly recognized certification for project managers worldwide. The distinction sets PM professionals apart from other PMs. It provides confidence in yourself and with employers that you grasp the vast spectrum of PM best practices.
The exam is extremely difficult. It weeds out the average project manager by holding a high passing standard. To be successful, it is encouraged to take a course combined with personal preparation, i.e. reading and studying.
The classroom time is 38 hours spread out over 3 Tuesday and Wednesday evenings and 2 all day Saturdays (plus one morning for a final practice exam):
Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 5:30 – 8:30p : April 23, 24, 30, May 1, 7, 8
Saturdays from 8:30a – 5:30p : April 27 and May 4 + May 11 morning for a Final Exam
To be successful, outside work and study between sessions is expected. And you should sit for the official PMP exam before the change over to the 5th edition of PMBOK scheduled for Sept 1.
Most prep classes cost $1,500 to $3,000 + travel expenses. For this unique situation, the course fee is so much less. A really smashing deal!
And if you find that the class does not meet your expectations, you can take your money back - we are that confident that you will learn and benefit from the class. Your success is our success. We like being successful as much as you do.
The course includes:
36+ classroom hours with an experienced PMP instructor (and many out of class hours for advice and guidance)
Comprehensive classroom materials, extensions, flashcards, and other resources
Valuable interaction with other PMP certification seekers
Practice questions and exams with rationale
Ongoing assessments of your progress
Full color study guides and materials
Individualized assistance from our dedicated instructors
Coffee and other refreshments provided
