The Project Management PrepCast Elite PLUS
The PM PrepCast Comes in Three Versions:
Basic, Elite, and Elite PLUS:
The PM PrepCast was first launched in 2008 with the goal of providing high-quality but low-cost training to project managers preparing for their exam. We have continuously updated it to stay in tune with the latest in available technology as well as the ever-increasing difficulty of the PMP exam. We invest a lot of time and effort into helping you pass, and you can select from one of three versions:
- Elite PLUS
The PrepCast Elite is our most popular product. And even though the Elite or Elite PLUS are recommended for most students, let's begin by reviewing what you get with The PM PrepCast Basic:
What You Get - And What The PM PrepCast Basic Will Do for You...
When you're taking the PMP exam, you'll always get a few of the same questions over and over...
... What should the project manager do?
... What should the project manager do first/next?
... What is the best course of action?
... How would you do this in an Agile/Hybrid environment?
... What tool or technique does the project manager use in this scenario?
... What process is described in this situation?
... What should the project manager have done differently to avoid this situation?
So how can you gain the knowledge to answer questions like these? Well, when you not only study but instead master PMP exam concepts with The PM PrepCast you have ADVANCED your knowledge, and you automatically give yourself a significantly better chance of being certified on your first try.
And as you probably already know, the PMP exam is not an easy exam and passing it requires commitment and dedication throughout your studies.
The PM PrepCast gives you a 'best-in-class' training, and you gain advanced-level knowledge via video-based lessons so that you can confidently answer questions similar to the ones above.
What's Inside the Latest Version of the Course?
The PM PrepCast Elite has now helped close to 60,000 project managers in 160+ countries to study and prepare for their PMP exam. And passing the exam has earned them the respect of their peers and opened doors.
We spent over a year with our ear to the ground, analyzing every comment, every feedback survey response, and every support email to uncover what PrepCast students want most from our course. We also read the complete PMP Exam Content Outline and the PMBOK® Guide.
Here's what we discovered, how online training has changed, and what our students expect from a solid PMP exam prep training:
The World Has Changed... And we've Adapted Everything for You!

Immediately After Signing Up...
Module 00.1: PMP Exam Content OutlineThe PMP Exam tests your understanding of the 3 Domains, 35 Tasks and 133 (!) Enablers that are listed in The PMP Exam Content Outline (ECO). In this module we give you an initial introduction to the ECO - so that you understand what you will be tested on - and the rest of the course focuses on teaching you the concepts you need to pass.
Module 00.2: The PMBOK Guide Seventh EditionEven though the PMP Exam doesn't test your knowledge of The PMBOK Guide directly, it is nevertheless one of the most important exam reference documents for you to understand. In this module we review the guide and discuss the project management principles and domains from the guide with examples, expert insights and sample exam questions.
Module 00.3: The PMP ExamThis module introduces you to many aspects fromt the exam itself. We begin with a general overview, discuss exam audits, the exam report, and even include a few lessons where we interview our students so you can hear first-hand what the exam experience is like.
Module 1: Essential Project Management ConceptsYou may have years of experience as a project manager, but since you are going to take the PMP exam you must know and understand a number of concepts from PMI's point of view. This module lies the foundation of being able to put everything on the exam in context.
Module 2: Exam Content Outline "People" DomainThis is the first of the three domains from the PMP Exam Content Outline. It includes 15 lessons. The lesson topics include: Manage conflict, lead a team, support team performance, empower team members and stakeholders, team training, team building, impediments, negotiation, collaboration, build a shared understanding, virtual teams, ground rules, mentoring, as well as emotional intelligence.
Module 3: Exam Content Outline "Process" DomainThis is the second of the three domains from the PMP Exam Content Outline. It includes 18 lessons. The lesson topics include: Business value, communications, manage risks, engage stakeholders, budget and resources, schedule, quality, scope, integrate project planning activities, manage project changes, procurement, project artifacts, determine appropriate project methodology and practices, governance structure, manage project issues, knowledge transfer, and closure.
Module 4: Exam Content Outline "Business Environment" DomainIhis is the final of the three domains from the PMP Exam Content Outline. It includes 5 lessons. The lesson topics include: Compliance, project benefits and value, external business environment changes, and organizational change.
Module 20: AgileIn this module, you'll learn the basics of agile project management and dive deep into the Agile Manifesto: how it all began! You'll gain an overview of Scrum so that you can move confidently into the more advanced agile lessons.
Module 21: Agile Frameworks and MethodsScrum, XP, Lean, Kanban, hybrid... After this module you'll understand all about different agile frameworks and how they deliver value for customers. You'll learn the history, principles, roles and tools of each to be able to confidently work within agile environments. Expert interviews will help you understand how these methods work in practice.
Module 22: Agile Communications ConceptsCommunication is an essential part of working well as an agile team. In this module, you'll learn the communication practices that work best in colocated and distributed teams, so you can choose the best approaches wherever your colleagues are based. You'll learn the tools and approaches to ensure everyone receives the information required to fulfil their role.
WE BASED EVERYTHING IN THE PM PREPCAST ON WHAT EXAM TAKERS ACTUALLY NEED:
The modules of The PM PrepCast are modeled after the PMP Exam Content Outline and we have a lesson for each task. For example the PrepCast lesson "People - Leading a Team" matches up with the respective domain and task from the ECO.
And it's more than just a matching structure! The lessons of The PM PrepCast have been verified to summarize all enablers that are mentioned in the tasks of the PMP Examination Content Outline. And because it's in the exam outline it means that you will very likely see questions about it on your actual exam.
... and we also included additional training material that you will need but is barely covered by the PMBOK® Guide -- for example "Baselines". For these topics we know from experience, student feedback and lessons learned analysis that they are often needed for the exam but not specifically called out anywhere. But The PM PrepCast has them for you!
BY WATCHING THE PM PREPCAST LESSONS YOU WILL:
Increase your chance of passing the PMP Exam with real-world examples to help you truly understand the exam concepts. You will know what to expect on the exam. Plus, our course makes you a better project manager, too.
Review the material from PMI Standards+ and the PMBOK® Guide but in a much more approachable, engaging and sometimes even entertaining fashion.
Understand Earned Value Techniques and be able to answer questions about them confidently.
Maximize your day by studying anywhere your phone or tablet goes. For instance on your drive to work, when you are outside riding your bike, or watch a lesson over lunch, as you are sitting on the bus or when you are waiting in line at the post office.
