Every project would be on time and within budget if nothing ever went wrong. During this course, you will learn how to anticipate what can go wrong, assess the impact on a project, define backup plans, and keep the project under control if and when risks materialize. You will explore the risk framework and develop skills to help you know how and when to identify risks, determine which risks to manage, develop a risk response plan, and track and close risks. The processes are based upon the Project Management Institute (PMI)® standard Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide). This course includes hands-on exercises and group work using case studies.
Prerequisites: participants must have taken the Comprehensive Project Management Basics course (formerly titled Project Management) or equivalent.
This course can provide up to 12 PDUs / contact hours towards attaining or maintaining the Project Management Professional (PMP)® designation. Participants must submit the request to PMI via the Continuing Certification Requirements System (CCRS).
Professional Development Units are allocated according to the number of training hours completed by the student and may be granted by increments of 0.25 PDU for each 15 minutes of training. A participation certificate will be given to students who attend a minimum of 75% of the course.
