Scheduling Professional (PMI-SP)® Exam Preparation

Today's project environments demand complex project scheduling techniques that go beyond simply defining the time required to execute the project. Project Managers and Schedulers must be able to strategically analyze project schedules, recognize scheduling opportunities and detect scheduling threats and use this information to refine schedules within interdependent, dynamic, fast-paced environments. Small and large organizations alike will benefit from employees who have the critical knowledge needed to successfully lead projects through today's risky terrain!

Despite the growing need for project managers, keen competition is expected for project management positions; candidates who are credentialed will realize the greatest opportunities to advance and succeed.
