WIXOM (WWJ) — Schoolcraft College’s continuing education and professional development department is continuing its successful partnership with Q’vive LLC, a local leader in innovation strategy and training to offer PMP Exam Shift, a new course to prepare students for the updated PMP and CAPM exams.

“There are many project managers who have studied for the exam based on PMBOK Guide Fourth Edition, who now have to become familiar with the new Fifth Edition to take the exam,” said Eric van der Meulen, president of Q’vive. “The PMP Exam Shift course will only be offered this fall. It is a short, condensed, and intensive review, highlighting the differences between the two PMBOK Guide editions, with an emphasis on discussion of exam questions. We are thrilled to be able to offer this course, and are expecting to see many more pass the exam.”
