PMP Certification Training

The Project Management Training Experts

The 4 day Project Management Professional (PMP®) Exam Prep Course will prepare the candidate to sit for the Project Management Institute (PMI®) PMP certification exam. The course will cover the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®) 6th Edition on which the majority of the exam is based, but will also include discussions and examples of the practical application of project management concepts and theories in the real world.

In order to sit for the exam you’ll need to apply to the PMI and meet certain eligibility requirements. Click here for summary of the requirements and how to apply.

Senior Project Management Instructors with Real World Experience

Unlike other project management training companies, all our instructors are full-time senior project managers that bring current real-world experience to the classroom. Our lead instructor and curriculum developer, Dr. Vaughn Scott Burch, president of Graywood has over 30 years of industry experience and teaches university project management Master’s and Doctoral courses. Dr. Burch has personally prepared over 1000 students in the DC area to pass the PMP certification exam.

Federal Government and DOD Experience

As a project manager in the local Washington, DC area, you require unique skills that most other PMs don’t because of the high concentration of federal government agencies and commercial high-tech companies. There are a lot of national training companies that schedule courses in Washington, DC to simply make money without knowing and understanding the specific concerns of DC project managers. Our instructors work and live in the Washington, DC area as senior project managers with current experience working with the federal government, DOD, and the high tech industry.
