Innovative training company Parallel Project Training, based in Reading, has expanded their offering of project management training podcasts with the recent launch of a new series of podcasts aimed at time-strapped project managers preparing for professional exams. This series is specifically designed for those wishing to gain certification from the internationally recognised Project Management Institute (PMI). The beauty of podcasts is that you can listen and learn literally anywhere you choose – in the car, train or plane; up a mountain or on a beach or just at home with only an inexpensive MP3 player.
Aimed at preparing a candidate to pass the PMP Certification exam, the podcasts cover the essential concepts of professional project management as documented in the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBok©). In addition they provide hints and tips accumulated through years of experience by the professional trainers from one of the UK's leading project management training providers, including the style of questions to expect and exam techniques.
There are three key benefits to PMP Exam Prep podcasts:
• Challenge and motivate project managers;
• Support more formal methods of project management training;
• Flexible learning for progress at each individual's own pace.
Paul Naybour, Business Development Director of Parallel Project Training, remarked "We have been creating podcasts for over 2 years but they were primarily aimed at the UK market for APM exams. There was a clear gap in this type of learning support for project managers looking to take the PMP exams from the American Project Management Institute and with the growth of our PMP offerings in traditional workshops and e-learning courses it was the natural next step to introduce these flexible and very effective training options"
These PMP Prep podcasts, and all other Parallel Project training podcasts, are available entirely free of charge from their website.
