PMP Courses in Singapore - recommendations?

Postby olivia242 » Thu, 05 Apr 2012 10:39 pm

Hi,

I'm still struggling to find work as a project manager and am thinking that a PMP certification may increase my chances.

Does anyone know a good school/institution that will do an intensive course including the exam? I want to be certified as quickly as possible.

Thanks.

Cheetah Learning. If you are getting interviews and not getting jobs, a certification might not help you. If you have lots of years of experience in project management the PMP will teach you new ways to think about projects which may increase your chances.

Those courses are short. Only 5 days. I suggest you read Rita book first. Also download some online courses.. Practice. Finally to meet the registration requirements attend class.
