The School of Management's Project Management Certificate Program offers participants the chance to learn current, effective techniques in meeting the challenges that face Project Managers. Project Management Certificate Program participants will gain an understanding of the competencies involved in successfully planning and managing a project. The course will include instruction and practical exercises involving the management of project attributes such as scope, time, cost, quality, human resources, communication, risk, procurement and integration. 

Course Objectives

By the completion of this course, participants will be able to:

Who Should Attend

Project managers, program managers and project team members who are interested in gaining a better understanding of Project Management and methods for improving the quality of their environments. Novice managers in the field will greatly benefit from this program. This course is NOT intended as complete preparation for the PMI's PMP certification. However, this course will enhance the understanding and applicability of the major aspects associated with Project Management.

PMP Exam Preparation

This program satisfies 24 of the 35 contact hours required to apply for the Project  Management Professional (PMP) certification exam. The content delivered is based on the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK), the same content that is the foundation of the PMP exam. This course is a good option if you prefer a classroom setting and need more one-on-one interaction as you prepare to take the exam. It is also a great place to network with other aspiring PMPs, and project managers. Many of the participants end up forming study groups with other participants.

Our instructor, Gary Pacer is PMP certified and has guided many former students through the certification process.

Topics Include

Please note: you need to be a U.S. resident to attend this open-enrollment program.
