Project Management Professional
Project Management Professional, that is what the acronym PMP stands for. PMP® is a certification issued by the Project Management Institute (PMI®) that recognises that the holder understands the global language of project management and has demonstrated experience in the project management domain. In order to obtain the certification, you should demonstrate your experience, i.e. you have to be admitted to the exam based on evidence of your working history. If you are admitted you have to pass a 200 multiple choice questions closed-book exam within the 4 allotted hours, covering the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) and PMI's Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct.
If you are looking for a class room based or instructor led preparation to the PMP® exam training in Hong Kong, then do not hesitate to reach out. You can find more information on the PMP® certification on the PMI® website.

Within these knowledge areas 49 processes have been defined, grouped in 5 Process Groups that cover the life cycle of a project or project phase. For each of the processes, the Guide describes the inputs, outputs and tools & techniques used in the process. The tools & techniques are grouped into different categories.
The PMBOK® Guide describes the knowledge within the profession of project management. This includes both the traditional practices as well as the new practices, like agile settings.
