Project Management Training Platform PM PrepCast

Client

We helped our Californian client Cornelius Fichtner (OSP International LLC) create an eLearning training platform for Project Management Professional certification and grow his business from scratch.

Challenge

In the world of project management, credentials matter. Having proof of your skills, for example in the form of a PMI-ACP certificate, can ensure that the person can command a much higher salary than their non-certified counterparts.

Even after the exams are over the learning continues - a certified project management professional (PMP) must earn a number of Professional Development Units (PDUs) every three years to keep their status.

Our customer wanted to create an online elearning platform that would help users from all over the world prepare for their PMI certification and give them plenty of opportunities for continuing development. Live courses can only accept so many people, so an online alternative would be better.

Solution

For this purpose, the best option was a ready-made but highly-customizable solution. It just so happened that we had one. Through the combination of Joomla CMS and JoomlaLMS, we’ve delivered a powerful eLearning platform for our client.

The platform’s offerings revolved around two major elements: learning materials and mock exams. The materials came in various forms (podcasts, flashcards, e-books, etc.) for the learners’ convenience. And the tests were based upon the latest versions of real PMP, PMI-ACP, and CAPM exams.

The project employed a “try-before-you-buy” model: a learner could get 7 days of free access to check the system out before committing to a 90-days paid version. Not only this was more convenient than studying in a classroom - it was also cheaper.

Process

The client has used the full extent of his experience to ensure this project succeeds. He was the subject matter expert, as well as the instructional designer. They have also provided the user stories, specifications, calculations, and layouts that the product needed.

We started with adapting JoomlaLMS to the requirements of this project. While most of the features of JLMS have already been a fit (that’s why this technology has been chosen) the Quizzes tool needed to be revamped to accommodate the kind of questions for the mock exams.

A lot of work was also put into digitizing the conventional learning materials. High-quality and up-to-date content was and still is one of the platform’s competitive advantages.

Results

Since the platform’s launch in 2008, almost 56,000 project managers in more than 56 countries have completed one or more of its courses. It has been certified as both a Registered Education Provider and Authorized Training Partner by the Project Management Institute - the world’s leading authority on all project management matters.

The customers tend to like the platform as well: the reviews on Facebook give it a 5/5, and the reviews on Google - 4,9/5.
