Great trainer and I enjoyed the course.

Great exam tips, understanding your learning style and having a strategy for the exam, aside from learning the material. The tutor’s past project experience linked to the project management knowledge areas and process groups – it provided great insight to… Read More

1. Why does your PMP® / CAPM® exam preparation course span 5 weeks?

We know real learning and deep understanding takes time. Students have to understand, appreciate, assimilate and apply the knowledge they learn in order to not only pass the exam but also to retain the knowledge and be able to use it in their jobs.

Although some of our competitor offer a much shorter exam preparation course, we find these courses feature a high degree of rote learning, or memorization techniques rather than a deep understanding of concepts and principles that we focus on in our training.

Falcon Training does not only measure success purely based on a pass or fail in the exam, we value real insight and an advancement on your professional development.

That’s why our flagship PMP®/CAPM® examination preparation course is presented 1 day a week for 5 weeks. This sets us apart from the next best alternative.

2. What are the Project Management Institute (PMI®) credentials – PMP® and CAPM®?

As defined by the Project Management Institute (PMI®), the Project Management Professional (PMP®) credential recognises the ability to lead and direct project teams to deliver on-time and within budget.

PMP® candidates are experienced in project management and are responsible for all aspects of projects for the duration. Many companies now require the PMP® qualification as a minimum level of proficiency for new and existing staff. Companies who employ PMP® qualified project managers enjoy a definite competitive advantage.

The Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM®) credential confirms an understanding of the PMBOK® Guide, a best practice standard in project management. This certification is for those professionals who are new to project management, or looking for a career change into project management.

We recently provided PMP® and CAPM® certification training and examination preparation for a number of professional project managers based in Suva, Fiji. We tailored a training program specific to their needs. Training was carried out over a 4-month period and included classroom based training, virtual discussions, and a structured study group.
