Project Management Essentials - Level 1

Who Should Attend: 

Project Managers and others who manage projects. 

This short course is designed for anyone who wants to learn about project management. If you are new to project management or need to know the project management processes, this course is right for you. 

We all manage projects in our daily and professional life. However, it is important to understand the project management methodology prescribed by the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) to do the projects in a right manner.

This course will enable you to understand and use the PMBOK so that the projects that are conducted have the techniques and tools to make them efficient. You will learn the best practices that you can apply in your current or future projects.

This course offers 16 hours of Project Management education.  Project Management education is required to sit for various certification exams such as the CAPM®   or PMP®   

If you have a 4 year degree and want to pursue a career in the field of project management and do not have the required 4500 hours of practical experience in leading projects, then CAPM would be a good exam to take. It will help you to initiate your career path in project management. Another requirement for CAPM and PMP exams is certain number of hours of education in project management – 23 hours for CAPM and 35 hours for PMP.

The classes we offer here, will qualify you towards the education requirement – 16 hours for a 2 day workshop. With two workshops you can obtain 32 hours of education and will help you to qualify for CAPM certification exam. You can pursue PMP exam once you gain the practical experience.
