Three Program Options Available

  1. Fundamentals of Project Management
    This track provides an introduction to general project management best practices. It introduces the student to a roadmap for good processes, the basic tools and techniques of professional project management, and guides students through the development of a professional project management plan with the assistance of an experienced coach/mentor. This program helps students gain the basic skills required to take on project management responsibilities in a professional work environment.

  2. PMP® Credential Exam Preparation
    The PMP® Credential Exam Prep track is for students who have significant project management work experience, and are eligible for the PMP® credential, but who need a thorough understanding of all of the project management processes to be prepared to pass the exam and perform at the level expected of a PMP. This involves a deep online preparation course and the opportunity to work with an expert PMP® exam prep instructor.
    Participants in this track have the option of participating in their instructor sessions individually or as part of a cohort group.

  3. Specific Industry Project Management or Special Topics
    This track is for project managers who are looking at industry­ specific study in project management, a specific methodology, or a deep look into a specialty topic. We have many experienced instructors that focus on specialty areas including rescuing troubled projects, starting a PMO, Vision to Value training, and more.(See a more complete list here.)

" I took this course to develop a solid understanding of the fundamentals of project management.  This course helped me to focus my existing skills into the systems of project management.  I know that the knowledge I have gained has and will make me better at serving my numerous customers. As a result of the one-on-one coaching, I was able to provide my manager with several products (homework) from the course. "

" I enjoyed the Project Management Certificate Program because I was able to set my own pace. My instructor also worked with me to customize the course based on my specific needs and professional goals. The self- and peer-assessment that kicks off the program was very enlightening. I learned so much. Every business should send their employees through this certificate program because it provides a flexible project management toolkit that can be applied to reduce costs and improve success."

I would recommend the Project Management Certificate Program to others without hesitation. "
