RMC Celebrates 10th Anniversary of PMP® Exam Prep by Rita Mulcahy
First PMP® Preparation Book Ever Released is Category Best-Seller, Jump-Started Project Management Training Industry
Minneapolis, MN (June 16th, 2008)
RMC Project Management, one of the fastest-growing project management training companies in the world, has recently announced the 10-year anniversary of PMP® Exam Prep by Rita Mulcahy. Originally released in 1998 as a stand-alone product, this book has helped hundreds of thousands of project managers prepare for The Project Management Institute's Project Management Professional (PMP)® exam. The book's release in the late 1990s jump-started a then growing project management training market, now estimated to be a $1 billion per year global industry. Today PMP® Exam Prep is the best-selling PMP® Exam Preparation book of all-time.
Mulcahy, author of all five editions of PMP® Exam Prep, is an award-winning author and highly visible contributor to the project management profession. In addition to being one of the original founders of the project management training industry, her company (RMC Project Management) has delivered classroom training to thousands of project managers around the world.
Mulcahy has leveraged her success as an author and trainer into an entrepreneurial enterprise that now includes a training company, a publishing company, an online bookstore and an International LLC that provides branded training courses in 30 countries—including Brazil, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Italy, Switzerland, Singapore and many others. Since entering the project management training industry, Mulcahy has developed and released nearly fifty (50) professional development products, classes, and e-Learning courses.
The 10-year anniversary of PMP® Exam Prep is a testament to Mulcahy's intimate knowledge of the challenges project managers face every day, as well as the effectiveness of her writing and teaching style. Taking a unique approach to accelerated learning, Mulcahy prefers to cut right to the heart of issues, and focuses on real-world solutions that can be implemented immediately. "When you read an RMC book or take an RMC class, you're going to get something completely different," stated Eric Rudolf, Director of Marketing for RMC Project Management. "There is a certain sense of urgency and a real-world focus that you simply will not get with other products and classes."
In addition to being distributed in over 40 countries across the globe, PMP® Exam Prep has been an Amazon.com Top 500 Best-Seller in the 'All Books' category since 2005, and regularly occupies the #1 spot in Amazon's 'Professional and Technical Education' category. "To maintain this incredible volume of sales for nearly four years running is quite an accomplishment," noted Rudolf. "When you think of all the books that have come and gone over that time period, you realize how impressive it is to maintain this kind of loyalty."
Between now and the end of the year RMC is planning a number of marketing-related initiatives to celebrate the 10th anniversary of PMP® Exam Prep, including a Webinar by Rita Mulcahy, a commemorative 10th Anniversary PMP® Exam Prep System, and an evening celebration for RMC employees and customers, as well as other special promotions.
