Risk Management

12 PDUs 

Every project would be on time and within budget if nothing ever went wrong. During this workshop, 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 workshop includes hands-on exercises and group work using case studies.

Prerequisites: participants must have taken the Comprehensive Project Management Basics workshop (formerly titled Project Management) or equivalent.

This workshop is recognized by the Project Management Institute (PMI)® and as such will provide 12 PDUs (Professional Development Units) / contact hours towards attaining or maintaining the Project Management Professional (PMP)® designation.

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 90% of the course.
