RESTON, VA (January 28, 2010)
Learning Tree International (NASDAQ NGM: LTRE) has announced the introduction of a new course entitled Preparing for the CAPM® Exam. The Project Management Institute's Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)® credential signifies proficiency in fundamental project management knowledge and skills. Over three days, attendees will learn the terms and definitions of the PMBOK® Guide and prepare for the exam.

Attendees will learn how to:

  • Decipher the processes and knowledge areas of the PMBOK® Guide—Fourth Edition
  • Identify significant steps of the project life cycle
  • Master key terminology and definitions found in the PMBOK® Guide
  • Examine the PMBOK® Guide tools and techniques essential for CAPM® exam success
  • Evaluate their exam preparedness and create a personalized plan for self-study

Jennifer Urick, Vice President of Product Development for Learning Tree International, said, “Learning Tree offers a complete approach to the PMBOK® Guide for CAPM® exam preparation: more tips, tricks, memory aids and suggestions, plus intensive practice exams, an individualized plan and full practice test for home study, and strategies for completing the CAPM® exam application. All of this in keeping with Learning Tree's commitment to provide a preeminent level of quality to the education we provide.”
