11 weeks, 2 Eves/week, offered Monday evenings (online) and Thursday evenings (at Pace), 6 pm to 9 pm. Both evenings are Instructor-led.
This class is designed for participants who want an experiential approach to project management, where they can be part of a team and create real-world deliverables as they work through the project life cycle. Some experience with MS Project is recommended but not required.
In this course, as you learn about project management you will actually perform the duties of a real project team member. As you work with your project team, you will choose a case study and will create the same deliverables project teams create in a real-world environment. A team of instructors will help you learn the skills, tools and techniques endorsed by the Project Management Institute®. In this unique 66-hour class you will build a foundation of project management knowledge, concepts and experience. At the conclusion of the class you will present your complete project plan to the entire team of instructors, your classmates and guests.
