As project managers become in high demand across all sectors, learning project management methodologies is essential for individuals seeking a supervisory or management role.
Due to the nature of these critical skills that are transferable across many industries, Continuing Education has added two new project management courses, making a total of three project management offerings, for all skill levels, ranging from the foundations of project management to advanced curriculum for seasoned professionals.
Delivered in partnership with Procept, an authorized training partner of the Project Management Institute, Continuing Education is adding a Project Management Professional exam preparation course and a certified agile project management course.
PMP® Exam Prep Course begins Oct. 18. This course is specifically designed to provide participants with a proven, practical approach to preparing for the Project Management Professional Certification Exam from the Project Management Institute. This course is an intense review of material to help prepare participants to write the exam. Prior project management training and experience is highly recommended to maximize candidates’ chances to pass the exam. The instructors are experts at presenting content in an engaging manner, keeping the atmosphere positive, and empowering course participants as they prepare to challenge the exam.
Certified Agile Project Manager begins Nov. 19. Participants in this 21-hour session will learn the techniques of disciplined, structured agile project management through simulations and examples from real-world projects that used these methods to control changing requirements. This course is designed to meet the educational requirements for three certification exams: the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner, the Scrum Master Certification, and the Certified Agile Project Manager exams.
Continuing Education continues to offer Levels I and II of the Accelerated Project Management Certificate. Participants who wish to register for both the PMP Exam Prep Course and the Certified Agile Project Manager course should have completed Level I: Project Management Essentials or equivalent. Level I starts Oct. 5.
A recording of an information session highlighting an overview of the Accelerated Project Management program, its benefits towards PMI certifications, professional development units earned, PMP Exam Prep course, and Certified Agile Project Manager course is available for viewing on the website.
