Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Hi everybody!

 

I am trying to find a training provider in or around London that offers a training course (and exam) for the PMI-SP Credential. The only provider that I manage to find by looking online is IT Governance however, they are not offering this course any more. Has any planner in the UK done the course and taken the exam? Which training provider did you use?

 

Please note that I wouldn't be interested in online training courses.

 

Thanks in advance for your help,

 

Konstantinos

If you have some self discipline, our email based PMI-SP course is approved by PMI for the training component of the eligibility and only costs $800 (about ₤400) – but you buy your own coffee.  You also need to act fairly quickly; the PMI-SP examination will be updated on the 1stSeptember 2013. I’m not sure how extensive the changes will be but all five ‘domains’ within the examination have been re-named and some re-focused.

 

If you are thinking of taking the exam before the change, you can test your current level of preparedness on a free set of questions with comprehensive answers (no registration required), download the questions from: http://www.mosaicprojects.com.au/Free_PMI-SP_Questions.htmland there are links through to information on the training.

Kelly,

Thank you very much for your valuable input. I am aware of the requirement, which I meet; I am just interested in finding a course provider, in London,  to prepare for the exam.

For anyone else looking, I have found a course provider (details below) but it'd be good to get a second quote if any other providers are there. Also, I have come to realise that there is not a lot of interest in this course in the UK so there are not many courses taking place.

So, details of the PMI-SP course provider:

QA Training

Capitol House

Bond Court, Russell Street

Leeds LS1 5SP

www.qa.com

 

The price I was quoted was £1,855 excluding VAT. Also, it became clear from the quote that this price does not include for the exam fee. 

So, if you do have any details of another course provider, please do let me know.

To earn your PMI Scheduling Professional pmi-sp credential, you need to meet the experience and education requirements, and pass the PMI-SP® examination, a 170-question, multiple-choice test.

Regardless of how advanced your project scheduling experience or education might be, you should still prepare vigorously for the exam. Successful PMI-SP candidates typically use multiple study aids — including courses, self-study and study groups — and will spend many hours to prepare, so make sure you leave yourself plenty of preparation time before you take the exam.
