PROJECT MANAGEMENT ESSENTIALS

(For those who want PMP knowledge and do not need the PMP Cert.)

  • This self-directed online course is an accessible, hands-on journey through a project from initiation to closing, with a special emphasis on initiation and planning. Course participants practice using project management tools and techniques while they experience the realistic challenges that are encountered on projects.
  • Project Management Essentials is aligned with the Project Management Institute’s (PMI’s) Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge and it introduces tools and terminology without overwhelming participants with jargon. The course focuses on developing practical skills that can be applied immediately to increase the level of success on projects.
  • This fun on-line course consists of a series of videos and short offline activities for participants to complete at their own pace.  Videos include both Point slides with the instructor voice over and video recordings of a live instructor demonstrating techniques. Based on years of experience, the instructor inserts stories, illustrations and other examples to make the material relevant. The course uses two cases studies so participants can practice the tools they have learned on projects facing challenges similar to the ones they will face in their real-life work environment. The course includes sample answers for the exercises, pointing out best practices and also areas for improvement.  There are also activities where the learners are encouraged to apply the new tools and techniques to one of their own real-life projects. Each course module tests for comprehension with true/false questions or fill-in-the-blank type exercises.
  • Participants require approximately 20 hours to complete the course including watching all of the videos and completing the exercises.
