About all training. Updated 3/26/18

Our PMI® Training encompasses all kinds of projects - whether Business Analysis, traditional project management or Agile projects - all these projects need to be aligned to the organizational strategies and goals in order for the organization and its stakeholders to realize business benefits. In today's world, if you are an IT Project management you will likely want to have PMP®, PMI-ACP®, PgMP® and PMI-PBA® certifications so you have the skills sets to be more flexible within your project roles. Enterprise Data Management Professionals make use of social media, legacy systems and organizational databases in order to provide needed Big Data Business Intelligence Decision Making.

About PMP® Certification Definitely the most popular is the PMP Certification Training with Exam Prep because it influences all the other training. If you have worked in business for more than 5 years or even 3 or 4 years and you have a four year college education or equivalent or you have worked 5 to 8 years and have a high school diploma, send your resume to and she will review your experience to see what project management certification might be right for you. You don't need a title of a project manager in order to qualify. You need more hours to qualify for the PgMP Certification.

(5) CAPM Certification: The CAPM Certification is a good leg-in for professionals who have not worked on any kind of projects for a long time but want to start working as a project manager again or for someone that has at least 1500 hours of project management exposure. While a minimum of high school education plus project management training is the minimum for CAPM Certification, at SmartPath LLC we combine the CAPM trainee with the PMP Class for the first 3 days. The CAPM Exam is almost as tough as the PMP Exam so one still needs to be well prepared, and to have an in-depth understand. Many people who think they are only qualified for the CAPM Certification are surprised that in fact they are qualified for the PMP Certification. That is because there are a lot of projects within business that they are not aware of.
