Overview

Effective Leaders Map Out the Game Plan 

The demand for project management skills in the business environment is continuing to increase with rapidly evolving complex infrastructures and global reach. University of Georgia’s Terry College of Business is proud to offer a Project Management course which addresses the often-overlooked leadership and communication skills critical to overseeing a project to completion.  

The material is catered to your work environment providing templates, skills and knowledge that can be applied to their work immediately.  If you’re preparing to take the CAPM or PMP exams, the course provides core information and practice quizzes over the PMBOK material and introduces PMI terminology and study tips.  

While the concepts, techniques and applications are covered in the first four days, the final and fifth day (optional) is dedicated entirely to passing the CAPM and PMP exams.

This Project Management course provides 35 hours of project management education, meeting education requirements for both PMI's Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) ® and Project Management Professional (PMP) certifications. Additionally, the program awards Continuing Education Units (CEUs) upon request.

The final and fifth day (optional) is dedicated entirely to passing the CAPM and PMP exams with test prep questions, practice exams, etc.
