ATC PMP Course is above and beyond all others. It includes: ATC has an enhanced ECO (exam content outline) to show for each Task that the exam covers the related PMBoK (Project Management Body of Knowledge) 6th edition 7th edition pages and lesson and topic numbers in the student workbook, making it easier to study

The ATC instructor is experienced, dynamic, and engaging and has helped thousands of students pass the PMP Exam on the first try

We have highly interactive virtual sessions using whiteboards, polls, chat, breakout groups, and fun team-based contests, ensuring no one will be bored.

If you asked PMPs for their top recommended study tips, the number 1 response would be practice questions. ATC has compiled a list of mock exam questions, and you can select questions for each of the 35 tasks in the exam ECO

The instructor uses simplified language with clear definitions of terms and examples. Real-world anecdotes and analogies with customer industry-specific examples and interactive questions make it easy to comprehend the topics.

You won’t be alone. We set up a SLACK channel for each cohort to allow members to ask questions and to share valuable information with other participants and the instructor

Participants will also have access to exclusive content that we will make available in a shared drive to ensure you have all the materials you need to pass the exam for the first time

50% of the exam question (90 of 180) will have an Agile and hybrid focus. We ensure that you will be up to speed on Agile principles and practices with exclusive access to ATC Agile lessons and on-demand Agile videos, which are concise and engaging. They include:

  1. People: 42%
  2. Process: 50%
  3. Business Environment: 8%


Important note: The research conducted through the JTA validated that today’s project management practitioners work in a variety of project environments and utilize different project approaches. Accordingly, the PMP certification will be reflective of this and will incorporate approaches across the value delivery spectrum. About half of the examination will represent predictive project management approaches and the other half will represent agile or hybrid approaches. Predictive, agile, and hybrid approaches will be found throughout the three domain areas listed above and are not isolated to any particular domain or task. The exact number of items for each question type and approach may vary by form. Our scoring model is periodically reviewed by scoring experts to ensure valid assessment of knowledge and skills.
