Our PMP Exam Prep workshop has been one of the most popular ways of preparing to write the Project Management Professional (PMP) certification exam. With over a 96% pass rate, it’s also been one of the most successful.
Most importantly, our program is more than just a boot camp. It’s designed to help you learn the essentials to pass the exam, but it does so by helping you become a better project manager. The result is concepts that you retain beyond the exam, and techniques that you can apply on your projects.
What People Are Saying
“As a practicing project manager in the commercial building construction industry, I found the workshop material engaging and challenging as it exercised and stretched many established principles, processes, and methods utilized in my industry. The facilitation provide by Mr. Mark Mullaly was superb. In presenting the material to a class which included professionals from a diverse range of industries and project management experiences, Mr. Mullaly was able to provide relevant examples, answer general and highly technical questions with ease, and foster an engaged, team approach to working through the material.”
— Aaron Corser, CET, GSC, PMP, Principal, Erith Project Consultants
“The Project Management Professional (PMP) Exam Prep was very well structured and it made for a great six days of intensive learning. Not only did it prepare me fully to take the PMP, it also developed my project management skills. I found the course to be very practical and easily transferable to both the PMP exam and into my daily job as a construction project manager. During the workshop, I was able to learn a lot, not only from the instructor, but also from the other participant’s work experiences. The very daunting PMBOK was broken down into very manageable pieces. I especially appreciated the instructor’s obvious experience in project management and his insights into the PMP application process and how to effectively study for the exam. I felt prepared walking into the exam and there were no big surprises during the exam. If you are considering writing the PMP, this is a great course to take as part of your preparation.”
— Jennifer Morrison, P.Eng., MBA, PMP, Project Manager, EPCOR Technologies
“Having years of project management experience does not prepare you to write the PMP exam; it is a prerequisite to apply to write the exam. The exam is challenging, it tests your comprehension of the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK). The U of A School of Business workshop provides a comprehensive review of PMP principles and processes. Condensed into 6 full day sessions with a knowledgeable instructor, I found it fundamental to my success and would definitely recommend it to others.”
Tara Hanson, BA, MACT, PMP, Executive Director, Alberta Centre for Child, Family & Community Research
“In spring 2016, I took Mark Mullaly’s PMP Exam Preparation Workshop through University of Alberta Executive Education. Not only was Mark an excellent and knowledgeable instructor who taught me what I needed to know for the PMP exam, he also offered invaluable advice and assistance after the course was over, when my application to write the exam was audited by PMI. Thanks to Mark (and a disciplined study and review regimen), I passed the exam on the first try in October 2016. I highly recommend this course to anyone who is serious about obtaining the Project Management Professional designation.”
— Nancy Batty, Ph.D., PMP, Academic Program Development Manager, Red Deer College
“This course was excellent! Without it I would not have been able to pass the PMP exam. Mark kept us focused and taught us many good techniques to successfully prepare. The course was very well organized and it provided a good breakdown of material and practice questions. I highly recommend it to anyone that is currently interested in pursuing their PMP designation.”
— Dominika Rychlikova, PMP, Project Manager, Champion Pet Foods
