Professionals with a PMP® designation have an average annual salary of $86,000, with a range of $65,000 to $93,000, ranking the PMP certification as the third highest paying certification according to ZDNET’s Tech Republic organization. If you are interested in advancing your career, but lack the PMP certification then this program is for you!

Project-Management-Bootcamp-ThumbFormat: The course takes only 6 months from the start through the certification exam. Only twelve days in class while the balance is done online, via telephone and e-mentoring through Blackboard and an email discussion board.

Audience: We invite highly motivated people with increasing responsibility in the project management arena who are responsible and accountable for bringing projects in on-time, within budget and of high quality but lacking the PMP® certification. Cohort size is limited to 15.

Here is what our students are saying about the program...

"The class definitely prepared me for everything I needed to know and offered focus on what to expect.  Taking the exam was fairly painless with the preparation we did in class and the explanations that Joe provided" - Sean, Fall 2013

"Passed my CAPM certification and I owe it all to this boot camp. Knowledgeable teacher, informative slides, and enough practice exams to help you be prepared for the exam. I highly recommend this course and when I’m ready to sit for the PMP I’ll be taking this course again." - Susanna, Fall 2013 

"I was very pleased and impressed with the amount of knowledge and support I got during PMP® Boot Camp at CCAC in preparation for the exam. The duration of the program is perfect-not too long, not too short- and you are able to “absorb" the information compared to other programs that vary from one week to a month or two. I would definitely recommend the program (and I already did) to anyone interested in obtaining PMP® certification as I think it is the best  one out there." – Viktoryia, Spring 2012
