« back to classes page
CourseGraphic You will learn time-tested, PMBOK-aligned techniques for planning, implementing, and completing projects to produce desired results on time and within budget. You will use project management tools to set and achieve measurable objectives,estimate project time and costs, determine project scope, manage resource requirements and control project results. The course includes an interactive exercise in which students manage aproject from planning through measurement of results.

A PMP-certified instructor introduces participants to the project management processes through practical exercises and demonstrations. Students placed into small teams must plan a project, gain approval for each project deliverable and execute their project plan. Each project is measured on its results. This is not a virtual, computer simulation but is a hands-on activity that allows students to experience an actual project.
