Earned Value Professional (EVP) Exam Preparation Materials

Management Technologies is pleased to offer individuals and organizations a variety of products to help prepare for the AACE Earned Value Professional (EVP) exam.

The Earned Value Professional (EVP) certification has been recognized by both companies and government agencies as an indicator of one's thorough knowledge of EVM, EIA 748, and related project management topics. This certification is administered by AACE using a five hour exam. The exam includes a memo writing assignment where the candidate is given a scenario and instructions. The response is written using a text editor.


Some EVPs have said this is most difficult certification exam they have taken from either AACE or PMI. According to AACE the overall pass rate varies around 54%.

Our EVPrep(tm) materials include our EVPrep Boot Camp streaming video series and our EVPrep Study Guide. We also conduct EVPrep webinars and EVPrep two-day workshops for organizations. Organizations can request a quote for an on-site two day workshop, a webinar, or group purchase of the EVPrep Video Boot Camp or EVP Study Guide.

About the EVPrep Boot Camp

The EVPrep Video Boot Camp contains ten videos of about an hour or so each. It’s content is identical with our on-line interactive webinar and corporate on-site programs. It includes the four EVP trial exams with a discussion about each question and its answers. After completing the last video customers can download the EVPrep Study Guide for free. A completion certificate can be printed to claim fourteen guaranteed PMI PDUs

It's on-line 24/7/365. No need to schedule to attend a webinar. The best part is the low price. With each evolution of our EVPrep workshop we have been able to reduce the price. Our public sessions were $795 and you had to travel to the venue, our webinars were $495 but might be at 3 AM for you, and now the same content is available on YOUR schedule for $295!

Some customers' comments.....

Ray:   Meant to reach out to you after I passed the EVP exam.  Although, as I look at the certificate, it is dated March 2017, so it has been a while. Your online boot camp along with the test prep question booklet  were extremely helpful.  Especially your 5 paragraph memo strategy from the boot camp.

A new BearingPoint EVP said, "The practice material was helpful in my recognition of the types of questions asked, particularly for section four. I would have been lost on that section had I not spent the week prior studying for it based on the practice review materials."

"I passed my EVP the first time and just got notified. I wish to say thank you for your study guide. I particularly appreciated the last part on the memo as it was instrumental to my handling that section of the exam with ease." Michael O. Ogberuhor PMP, EVP, PMI-SP, PMI-RMP, PROJECT CONTROLS SCHEDULING ENGINEER

"I bought your EVP study guide the day before my exam because I wasn't confident the AACEI EVP study guide was good enough.  I used their study guide for 3 months but it only cover (sic) half of what I encountered on the exam and the other half was aided by your study guide."  Victor T.

"I received my notice last Friday that I passed the EVP Exam. In my opinion, your study guide played a key role in making that happen." Blake Crenshaw, Sr. Finance Manager, Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems

I am happy to inform you that with the help of your material (in conjunction with material from other parties) I was able to successfully pass the EVP exam. Gigi Troemel, EVP Program Control, Alliant Techsystems, Inc

I wanted to give you some feedback. Although I have been in the business over 40 years, I was not successful in my first attempt at the EVP certification exam. I purchased your review manual and this time had no problem with the test. Sometimes you have to give credit to those that help you. Thanks again. Doug Findley PMP CCC PSP EVP

"Passed! Got the result yesterday! Full credits to Ray Stratton's Guide." Sivakumar PMP, CPE, EVP

"Just found out today that I passed on the first try!.   I don’t think I would have passed without your study guide.  The practice sections as well as the specific preparation recommendations were invaluable.  The exam was still quite grueling, but your guide helped me prepare, keep from being overwhelmed, and ultimately earn my EVP credentials.", Gary Hamby, PMP, EVP

If I had not used your EVP Exam Study Guide, I do not believe I would have passed the test. Thanks for the valuable resource."
