Project Management Certificate Program - Program Content
The first two days of the program identify key factors that lead to a project’s success and describes the Project Management Institute’s five Project Management Processes and each activity that occurs within each process. Participants will facilitate a work breakdown structure (WBS) on a real world project, describe techniques to influence project stakeholders (even when they don’t have formal authority), and identify techniques to provide better estimates for projects. Teams will describe strategies for managing changes that inevitably occur within projects, learn about critical paths, and how to use them successfully to manage any project.

The second half of the program covers advanced techniques designed to map participants toward earning credentials in Project Management. Participants will analyze which projects should be selected over others, helping to ensure project selection is accurate and efficient and that stakeholder expectations are managed. The course will touch on cost management and earned value analysis plus cover practices to build quality management and project procurement management into projects. Participants will learn to identify appropriate conflict handling styles for any situation in order to better manage project conflict, and to describe methods to improve accountability and influence skills among project team members.
