PMP Boot Camp Course Description

Our PMP Boot Camp was created by military veterans who wanted to provide the greatest training at the lowest cost. That’s why we provide this training to students preparing for the PMP certification exam and to our employees. 

We are a small business that has been working with the US Government and DoD for over 15 years. We’ve been teaching PMP Boot Camps for over seven years and offer in-person and online classes.

As an AF COOL-approved vendor, we use PMI ATP standards and PMI-certified instructors to ensure you receive an outstanding education.

As the first PMI ATP with Premier status in this area, we’ve invested time, resources, and effort into ensuring our course meets PMI criteria, giving you extensive training and the best chance of passing the exam the first time. Alumni can instantly implement the ideas learned at our Boot Camp because it is hands-on and practical.

Our instructors have over 20 years of practical and instructional Project Management expertise and are PMP ATP certified. They do not just show slides and follow a script. They provide real-world examples of how they applied PMP principles in the workplace.

The course cost includes:

  • PMI PMP Exam Prep guide
  • PMBOK® Guide (Current Edition) and accompanying “Agile Practice Guide.”
  • PMI developed courseware
  • Hundreds of practice test questions
  • Completion Certificate
  • Post-Boot Camp Study Plan
  • Project Qualification spreadsheet (to help register for the exam)

(Cost of PMI membership or the PMP certification exam not covered).

If you don’t pass the first time, you can attend our course again for up to a year (free of charge) if there is room available. There is a nominal price for new materials.

Live Instructor Led Courses

While our courses are held in person, if a student is sick during the course, our team will work with you to ensure you are able to attend the complete course. This may look like rescheduling the course or attending your course virtually. C5T is a fragrance-free work center for the protection of key personnel. Please do not wear any cologne, deodorant, perfume, or anti-perspirant that has any scent into the C5T Office. 

Our class schedule is designed to minimize the amount of time spent away from work while giving students ample time to study between sessions. We end with a practice test where the students can apply the knowledge they gained over the previous four days of instruction, check their progress, and participate in a student-led Q&A session with their instructor.

  • “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.”  Colonel, Retired 
  • “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, 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 
  • “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
