Are you looking for a PMI-RMP® exam prep course that aligns with the new standards?
Prepare for the new PMI-RMP® Exam even if you are a super busy project manager managing multiple projects...
Project managers continue to contact me, looking for a current PMI-RMP® exam prep course, one that aligns with the current standards. Unfortunately, I don't know of one.
It's frustrating, isn't it? You would think that it would be easy to find such a course and the appropriate reference materials.
So, guess what? I've decided to create that course myself. This course not only aligns with the new Exam Content Outline but also aligns with the PMBOK® Guide, Seventh Edition and the Standard for Risk Management in Portfolios, Programs, and Projects.
In 2017, The Project Management Institute (PMI) estimated that project-oriented work attributed to $12 Trillion; by 2027, PMI expects the number to grow to $27 Trillion. Yet, according to the Standish Group, only 35% of projects undertaken worldwide are successful. Estimates suggest that eighty-eight million people are currently working on projects, with the vast majority not formally trained.
I'm Harry Hall, PMP, PMI-RMP, ARM-E
and I became a Project Risk Management Professional (PMI-RMP) in 2012...
This was one of the greatest achievements in my career. Becoming a Risk Management Professional opened many doors for me (more on that later).
I wish I could say it was easy, but it wasn't. Frankly, I had some self-doubt. I was not sure I had what it takes or enough time to understand concepts like the Monte Carlo Analysis, Tornado Diagrams, and Delphi Technique.
Another limitation was busyness. I had been promoted to Director of Enterprise Risk Management for a large insurance company in Georgia (USA).
If that wasn't enough, I started my blog as the Project Risk Coach.
And yes, I had responsibilities at home taking care of my wife and children. Someone still had to cut the grass. :)
How did I find the time?
Like anything in life, I made it a priority. My wife and I discussed the season of preparation and cutting out all extracurricular activities. Then, I hunkered down.
How did I find the right resources?
I did not want to spend too many mental calories preparing. And I certainly did not want to take the wrong course and pay double or triple to pass. Therefore, I reviewed the PMI requirements and purchased the study resources (books and a course). A mentor also helped guide me.
Because I've been there and done that, I can share tips to make your journey easier than mine. And I can provide a hassle-free prep course that you can complete after work. Buy now and start your journey by watching the streamlined videos.
I conducted a LinkedIn Poll where I asked others why they obtained the PMI-RMP®.
Improve Risk Management
"The PMI-RMP® provides the platform to apply your risk management knowledge and skillset to help your organization manage project risks better."
"Obtain Finance and GRC project gigs, and help organizations improve their handling of risk."
Increase Situational Awareness
"Help organizations obtain situational awareness and identify opportunities and threats."
HARRY HALL, PMP, PMI-RMP, ARM-E
I'm Harry Hall, ex-corporate project manager and creator of the PMI-RMP Exam Prep Course! Early in my project management career, I lacked the confidence and know-how to manage projects successfully. And much of my struggle was due to poor risk management.
Fast forward past hundreds of projects and lessons learned and you would see the path I took to become a successful project manager, program manager, PMO leader, and enterprise risk manager. For the past ten years, I've taught project risk management courses and helped many project managers become Project Risk Management Professionals (PMI-RMP®).
MELISSA PATERITSAS, PRESIDENT, CHATTANOOGA PMI CHAPTER
"It is great to have a partner like Harry Hall for our project management training and development needs! Harry led our recent Chattanooga PMI Chapter meeting and refreshed us all about the importance of identifying & managing risks for our projects. You can feel Harry's passion for helping others make their projects a success. I have personally taken courses from Harry and use his content to train my project teams. He is a great resource, and we enjoyed having him with us!"

What's different in the new exam?
The PMI-RMP exam changed on April 1, 2022. The new exam has updated terminology and processes. Project managers are expected to understand enterprise, portfolio, program, and project risk management. There are multiple select questions. Furthermore, the exam includes questions related to predictive, hybrid, and agile development approaches. You will discover all of this and more in the PMI-RMP Exam Prep Course!
“For organizations that apply a formal risk management approach, 73% of projects meet their objectives, 61% finish on time, and 64% are completed within the approved budget.” —PMI Pulse of the Profession
So, what are your options?
You can buy a study guide...
But many study guides are old and are in alignment with the PMBOK® Guide Fifth or Sixth Editions.
You can buy a cheap online course...
But many of the online courses are based on the PMBOK® Guide, Sixth Edition. Others are poorly organized, making it difficult to navigate and find what you need.
You can use whatever books and resources you have...
But why waste your time studying dated materials?
None of these options make the best use of your time, money, and energy.
"Risk management is one of the most widely adopted practices. Project management statistics show that almost a third of organizations (27%) always use it while 35% use it occasionally. Only 3% of the respondents have said they never use risk management practices." –TeamStage

"I have followed Harry Hall and his work for a number of years now and I can truly say that his webinars, articles, or other shared pieces of knowledge have never disappointed me. During this time, I also had a few occasions to meet him online or via phone and I can assure you that he is someone that you want when needing to bounce an idea or concept around. I credit him and his PMI-RMP® preparation webinar for giving me the push that I needed to get off of my procrastination bone and registered for the PMI-RMP® which I ended up passing with flying colors."
