Course Objective Mosaic's PMI-SP certification courses are pre-approved by PMI to deliver 30 (or 40) hours of training in the specialised area of planning and scheduling; and are focused on achieving a first time pass (with a100% success rate so far). PMI-SP course designer Patrick Weaver, has been a PMI member for more than 25 years and is a former Director of the PMI Melbourne Chapter. The course contents have been validated by Dr. Lynda Bourne, Lynda was the first person to be awarded a Doctor of Project Management world-wide and is a former PMI Melbourne Chapter President.

The examination for the PMI-SP credential covers a defined knowledge base outlined in the PMI-SP Exam Specification. Our courses cover the full spectrum of project scheduling knowledge needed to succeed in the PMP-SP exam supported by 100s of PMP-SP style questions. The key difference between our courses is the way you choose to study, not the course content. All of Mosaic's PMI-SP study materials have been developed by PMP certified trainers and include plenty of practice dealing with the PMI-SP question format and a PMI-SP sample test. Trainees' scores from our PMI-SP practice test give a good indication of their likely performance in the exam. We guarantee to keep working with you until you pass the examination (see our blog on guarantees).

All of Mosaic's PMI-SP courses are pre-approved by PMI as delivering appropriate course content for the PMI-SP examination.
