The Skillsoft curriculum covers the full range of project management topics included in the recently-published "A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK Guide) Fifth Edition" and features courseware, mentoring services and practice tests to ready professionals for the Project Management Professional (PMP) and Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) exams.

In addition, Skillsoft plans to update its popular Live Learning PMP class to reflect new material presented in the fifth edition guide beginning in July.
