Among survey respondents to PMI’s Earning Power Salary Survey, those with a PMP

(CAPM ® ) certification.

Course content covers the basic principles of Project Management and aligns with the 6 th edition
of the PMBOK ® Guide; a physical copy of this guide is provided to all students. The PMI 10
Knowledge areas, 5 Process groups, 49 processes, and related terminology is the foundation
upon which the course is designed. It is highly interactive and uses a “learn by doing” approach
which creates a high energy learning environment and teaches both cognitive and behavioral
