Are you interested in learning more about project management? Whether your intent is to become a certified project manager or if you simply want to become more productive in your current role, this is the program for you. Build a solid foundation of essential project management terminology, processes, and tools. According to a recent study conducted for the Project Management Institute (PMI), an estimated one million project management jobs worldwide will be created each year throughout the next decade.
Projects can be simple or complex. While simple ones can be managed with a little bit of planning and a healthy dose of common sense, complex projects need a more formal approach. In this course you can learn the key elements of good planning such as estimating, establishing project boundaries (scope) and scheduling. You will also learn how to anticipate potential problems (risks) and ways to mitigate them. This program is based on the internationally recognized standard: A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge® (PMBOK), which ensures that you are learning project management methodologies, concepts, and terminology recognized worldwide and applicable across all industries. Upon completion of this program, you will be able to put that new knowledge to use immediately.
This combined online program consists of two parts. The first part, The Essentials of Project Management, will provide you with a solid foundation of project management concepts and ensure that you are familiar with the terminology. Completion of this part of the program meets or exceeds the requirements for those interested in the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) ®, certification. The second course is the PMP Exam Preparation course designed to focus you on the most testable concepts of project management and assist you in your certification goals.
