This highly interactive program is designed to give participants a solid foundation in the concepts, tools and techniques of formal project management. While introductory in nature, this course is extremely comprehensive, covering the five key process groups and 38 core competencies associated with effective and efficient project management practice. Participants not only acquire technique-based proficiencies, but also explore and practice essential people skills and teamwork using a case study. The concepts and methods learned are immediately usable in the workplace, leading to a greater retention of newly acquired skills, measurable project improvements, and the achievement of desired project results.
This program also includes PMP Exam Preparation. It focuses on key concepts in each of the process and knowledge areas, including the recently added professional responsibility section. The exam preparation begins with an introduction to the exam and why it exists. Students are then given a practice test and the facilitator adapts the duration of each section of the course accordingly based on the needs of the program participants.
