PMP Workshops on Saturday Mornings
Experienced project managers are seeking international recognition of their competence by passing the Project Management Professional (PMP®) exam. The exam is administered by the Project Management Institute (PMI®) based in the USA, but may be sat at a local South African venue.
Due to heavy workload, many project management practitioners can’t find the time to spend three or more consecutive workdays attending a workshop. In response to this need ProjectPro offers a programme of workshops to be held on nine consecutive Saturday mornings from 09:00 to 13:00 in Johannesburg/Pretoria. This will give candidates at total of 36 contact hours of training to meet the PMI® requirement of 35 hours. The cost of the 9 workshops is R 14 220 incl. VAT.
Each candidate will receive a comprehensive manual and a copy of the 589 page Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide)5th Edition. Hundreds of typical exam questions will be worked through to identify the candidate’s strengths and weaknesses.
ProjectPro is accredited with the Services Seta (Accreditation No. 097). ProjectPro’s courses have also been validated by the Engineering Council of South Africa, Project Management South Africa and the Association of SA Quantity Surveyors.
For less experienced project managers the PMI® offers the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM®) certification (see below for requirements). The ProjectPro Saturday morning workshops also serve to assist candidates to pass the CAPM® exam.

PMP eligibility requirements for candidates to take the exam
Candidates must meet certain educational and professional experience requirements. All project management experience must have been gained within the last eight consecutive years prior to your application submission.
Candidates have two options:
*You should have experience in all five process groups (initiating, planning, executing, monitoring & controlling, and closing) across all your project management experience submitted in the application. However on a single project you do not need to have experience in all five process groups.
**Leading and directing project tasks as identified in the Project Management Professional Examination Specification (see Section 6 of manual).
The credential process is explained in the PMP Credential Handbook provided in Section 5 of the workshop documentation.
Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM®)
The Project Management Institute’s (PMI®) Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM®) programme has been launched. ProjectPro offers 3-day preparatory workshops to give candidates the best possible chance of passing the examination that may be taken in the RSA.
The CAPM® is an “associate-type” certification for practitioners who provide project management services, but are not yet qualified to apply for the above-mentioned Project Management Professional (PMP®).
The examination for the CAPM® designation is a computer-based test, as is the PMP® examination. Details about prerequisites, the examination procedure and an application can be found in the CAPM® Certification Handbook, which can be downloaded from www.pmi.org. It is also possible to apply for the exam online.
As with the PMP® designation, there are two different eligibility categories for the CAPM® relevant to education and experience of the applicant. These requirements are not essential to do the CAPM® workshop, but would be advantageous.
CAPM eligibility requirements for candidates to take the exam
To obtain the CAPM® credential, candidates must first demonstrate that they are eligible by meeting one of the following eligibility options:
The ProjectPro CAPM® workshop gives candidates sufficient hours. The CAPM® workshops are combined with the PMP workshops.The CAPM® handbook may be downloaded from www.pmi.org
