ARTHUR MAXWELL, Inc. launches a simulation-based PMP®/CAPM® Prep Class

February 16, 2012 - Golden Valley, MN

Arthur Maxwell Inc, has developed a new Mastery Experience Workshop™ targeted at those preparing for the Project Management Institute's PMP® or CAPM® exam.

AMI founder, Christine Moore states, "To our knowledge, this is the only exam preparation course that incorporates a simulation specifically designed for PMP®/CAPM® prep." She explains how other providers may combine a project management simulation with a prep course, but those simulations are not aimed at the participant's primary objective—to pass the exam.

Moore describes how AMI's new workshop will better prepare participants for the new situation-based exam, "Our exam preparation workshop brings the PMBOK® to life." Moore explains how AMI's exclusive iPad® simulation helps participants interact in true-to-life situations using documents, tools and techniques described in the PMBOK® and thus increasing their retention of the concepts.

Though AMI's primary objective is for participants to pass the exam and become certified, the workshop also helps them make a natural leap from taking the exam to successfully applying the PMBOK® concepts to their own projects. All participants leave the workshop with electronic tools and templates to help them bring the PMBOK® to life on their own projects.

Perhaps the most exciting news to those wanting to take the exam is that AMI guarantees participants will pass. If participants who take the exam within 30 days of course completion don't pass, AMI will personally coach them until they do.
