In doing your job you find yourself managing people’s expectations, working on teams, worrying about deadlines, and perhaps trying to manage the costs. If this is you, you are an accidental project manager. You don’t have a background in managing projects, and yet here you are.
Many of us learn by doing, and the more experience we gain, the more effective we will be. But until we gain that experience, we need guidance: a need we ignore at the peril of the project. The consequences of stumbling along can be painful for the project team, the client, and the organization as well as for ourselves.
The good news is that you can achieve success without being an expert in project management. You just need some basic tools and methods along with the confidence to apply them properly. This course gives you the need-to-know for project management success and enables you to start building the toolbox that will simplify the job, increase productivity, and make you a confident project manager.
This course can provide up to 6 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.
