The course is structured around lecture, workshops, discussion, practice exams, tips and questions, as well as specific studying and preparation practices.
The Project Management curriculum is based on the general knowledge and practices of the Project Management Institute’s Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK)™.
