  • Apply appropriate approaches to plan a new project.
  • Apply appropriate methodologies to develop a project schedule.
  • Develop a suitable budget for a new project.
  • Identify important risks facing a new project.
  • Apply appropriate techniques to assess ongoing project performance.

Students will be trained in the basic principles of project management, including concepts from the initiating, planning, executing, monitoring & controlling, and closing process groups. The course will also provide training and experience with project management tools and techniques, including work breakdown structures, network diagrams, risk management, earned value management, and other tools. Course materials for this class will purchased separately and students will receive details upon enrollment.
