PMP/CAPM Certification Exam Review Course - Fall 2015

PMP/CAPM Certification Exam Review Course – Fall 2015

Do you need to take the PMP or CAPM certification exam?  If so, we recommend all PMP/CAPM applicants take advantage of the excellent PMP Exam Prep Course offered by the PMI Dayton/Miami Valley Chapter. 


This PMP/CAPM certification test prep course concentrates on exam content from the new guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBoK),5th Edition.  The course provides the required 35 hours of accredited class room training taught by certified Project Management Professionals (PMPs®.) The class uses detailed presentation materials, study aids, practice tests, and our instructors provide up-to-date tips, tricks, and techniques.  The course prepares students to pass the exam when augmented with additional outside study.


The 35 hours of class time will be taught over five Saturdays. Class dates are 10/17, 10/24, 11/7, 11/14 and 11/21 (we skip Halloween weekend.) 


The fee for this course is only $698 for PMI Dayton Chapter members. You must be a member to take the course.  When compared to commercial providers, you will find that the chapter’s fee is less than half the going rate and there are no travel or lodging expenses.  The course fee provides each student with the following:

  • Tuition for 5 full days of training
  • Copy of PMBOK® Fifth Edition
  • Study Aids (Additional book, quizzes, etc.)
  • Free Parking
  • Food (Lunch and afternoon snack)


No formal prerequisites exist. Anyone can attend.  We do suggest, however, that prior to registering for this course, all class attendees become a member of PMI and the Dayton Ohio Chapter. 


All classes are held at Parkview Community Center, 4100 Glenheath Dr, Kettering, OH 45440


8:00am to 4:00pm each Saturday, with 7 hours of training, two 15 minute breaks and 60 minutes for lunch.



Registration is now open and will close 10/13/2015. The course tends to fill up so we suggest you register early. 

Please note that while the "Pay Later" and "Pay at the Door" options displays for this event, these are not options that should be selected when registering for this event. In order to hold your seat for this event, you must complete payment at the time of registering for the event. Please ensure you select the PayPal option when prompted.

If you do not select the PayPal option, you will be contacted to make payment and your seat will not be held until we have received your payment. Thank you for your cooperation.
