PMP® Training from New Horizons

PMP Training New Horizons

Directed by the Project Management Institute (PMI)®, Project Management Professional (PMP)® certification is the most important industry-recognized certification for project managers. Globally recognized and demanded, the PMP demonstrates that you have the experience, education and competency to successfully lead and direct projects.

The PMP certification improves your marketability to employers and higher salary; according to the PMI Salary Survey — Sixth Edition, “a PMP increases your salary up to 10% more than your non-credentialed colleagues and peers.”

Note: The PMP® Exam Has Changed in 2016
After January 11, 2016, only the new version of the PMP exam will be administered. The five domains of practice for the PMP remain the same. However, tasks within each domain have been modified, added, or removed.
Learn more about what’s changed.

To apply for the Project Management Professional (PMP) Certification you need one of two prerequisites:

  • A secondary diploma (high school or the global equivalent) with at least five years of project management experience, including 7,500 hours leading and directing projects and 35 hours of project management education.

  • A four-year degree (bachelor's or the global equivalent) and at least three years of project management experience, with 4,500 hours leading and directing projects and 35 hours of project management education.

To ensure your project management training certifications remain in effect, it’s essential that you complete at least 60 professional development units over a three-year cycle. As a Registered Education Provider (R.E.P), New Horizons offers both qualifying PMP certification training and the necessary continuing education courses to satisfy this professional requirement. What’s more, we are proud to offer additional training—such as ITIL, Business Analysis, Lean Six Sigma and IT Management Certifications—to help you manage the challenges of evolving IT projects.
