Course Description: This project management course applies to government/military, construction/deployment, financial, information technology, health care and other commercial applications, providing a firm grasp of specific steps in the project management process. Successfully managing a project requires effective planning and management using best practices in each phase of the project's life cycle. This course emphasizes practical approaches to effective project management consistent with the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK)®. The course thoroughly analyzes techniques for dealing with stakeholders throughout the project, managing scope, time, cost, resources, milestones, quality and risk.
Exercises provide practice creating baseline documents, forecasting staff requirements, managing communications, modularizing work assignments, sequencing activities, implementing quality assurance, managing risk, controlling scope, planning procurement and controlling costs.
Students will utilize Microsoft Project as a practical introduction to the use of software tools that are available to assist with creating a project plan, setting up time lines and deliverables, tracking costs, monitoring resources and managing the impact of changes to the plan.
Participants are encouraged to discuss how the concepts and skills can be applied to project work in their application domain.
One source for Project Management certification is the Project Management Institute (PMI). There are numerous requirements needed for certification outside of classroom training. The cost of the PMI certification exam is not included. Please visit the PMI website for details on certification, certification testing centers and PDU requirements.
