The course is designed to respond to the professional development needs of a wide spectrum of learners working or aspiring to work as project managers in both the public and private sectors.
Through this course you will receive a comprehensive overview of project management providing you with the critical skills for managing large and small-scale projects, the “hard” skills of cost and implementation management, and the crucial organizational management skills necessary for long term success.
To earn PMI’s PMP credential, you must demonstrate the required “long-term commitment” to project management professionalism and pass a rigorous, 200-question exam covering the five project management processes and all the knowledge areas in PMI’s project management body of knowledge (PMBOKP®).
