“Would have taken months to learn alone. ”

The PMP Certification has been a goal of mine for a while now, but the whole process was intimidating. After hearing praise from a past student, I gave the Persimmon group a try. It was information that would have taken months to learn alone. I highly recommend this class. I could not have done it without my coach!

“Excellent Study tools & Real-world Examples.”

This PMP Exam Prep course not only provided excellent study tools, but the instructor provided real-world examples of the variety of complexities and nuanced terms and theories the PMBOK® Guide defines. This allowed for easier memorization and application of the terms and theories in the daily role as a Project Manager.

Frequently Asked Questions

The PMP (Project Management Professional) is a globally recognized certification for project managers. It is awarded by the Project Management Institute (PMI), a not-for-profit professional membership association for the project management profession. The PMP credential is one way to demonstrate to potential employers that you have the experience, education, and competency needed to lead projects.

No! You don’t have to be a titled project manager to benefit from learning to manage projects, and the PMP certification is increasingly valued across many professions and occupations. In fact, many of today’s project managers were “accidental”—people with technical expertise in another area who gradually developed a reputation for successfully leading projects within their department. If this describes you, you might well benefit from formal training and certification in project management!

Each test is 180 questions, and covers three domains: People, Process, and the Business Environment. About 50% of the exam questions cover agile approaches to project management. In our PMP Exam Prep Course, we’ll discuss the exam format, content, and test-taking approach at length to ensure you are fully prepared to succeed!

Absolutely! But it is a lot more difficult. A PMP Exam Prep class taught by experienced instructors ensures that you’re learning all the content you need to pass–not just the content in the PMBOK® Guide. Also, a training class gives you the practice you’ll need to distinguish the most correct answer on the multiple-choice exam.
