Project Management Certification – PMP

C5T offers our PMP certification exam preparation boot camp to help prepare you to achieve project management excellence.

C5T Corporation (C5T) delivers capability through Project Management (PM) with our PMP Exam Prep Boot Camp. We value practical, innovation-minded people with a passion for successful mission accomplishment. We bridge the gap between operational and technical domains.

C5T began providing PMP exam preparation instruction in 2013 to enhance C5T productivity on our 15+ government contracts. It was a natural extension to evolve our practical and daily implementation of PMP into a PMP Boot Camp for others. Since then, C5T has provided PMP exam preparation instruction to C5T employees and members of the local community as a PMI Registered Education Provider (REP). In 2020, C5T became the first PMI Premier Authorized Training Partner (ATP) in the area and recently renewed our membership at the premier level.

We offer four classes across the year – led by PMI/ATP-certified instructors who are seasoned and experienced project managers and have proven themselves in various work environments. Instructors provide a high level of both teaching and practical experience.  

The PMI® Authorized Training Partner logo, the PMP and PMBOK are registered marks of the Project Management Institute, Inc.

Ideal Project Management Certification Candidates

According to the Project Management Institute (PMI), employers will need to fill about 2.2 million new project-oriented roles each year through 2027; so skilled project managers are in high demand.

  • “Program Management education gives you the tools and the knowledge to effectively and efficiently accomplish work in a globally recognized manner. I’ve seen a significant increase in the need for PMs and especially those that are PMP certified. I have over 28 years of military experience and over 6 years as a businessman, and I can attest that of all the certifications out there, PMP is the most universally accepted and respected.”  A.J. McMillan, Retired Colonel
  • “It’s not enough to be a subject matter expert anymore. The demand for resources requires individuals to apply their expertise with improved definition, planning, execution, closing, risk analysis, and continuous process improvement, and that comes through the application of Project Management training.”  Colonel Andy Molnar, USAF Retired 
  • “Knowing what I know now, I would love to have had the training prior to my first AF staff job as a Major (and I could have benefited from it in every role after that). I always felt as a staff officer that we were responsible for these big programs and yet our processes were poorly defined and unstructured.”  Colonel Joe Davison 
  • “I wish I had had this PMP® course as a Wing Commander.”   Brig Gen, USAF, Retired 
  • “Thank you so much for the PMP test preparation.  I followed your lesson plan and passed the first time!!  It was a pleasure working with you!”   MSgt, USAF
  • “Thank you for the great instruction and mentorship – I took the PMP exam on Friday and passed!”  Private Contractor
