    Our seven-week series covers a variety of topics in preparation for the Project Management Professional (PMP) Exam. If you are interested in the Certified Associate Project Management Professional (CAPM) exam, you may also take this class.

    In this course, you will review all material covered in the Project Management Book of Knowledge (PMBOK Guide), including the 10 knowledge areas:

    • Project integration
    • Project scope
    • Project schedule
    • Project cost
    • Project quality
    • Project human resource
    • Project communications management
    • Project risk management
    • Project procurement
    • Project stakeholders management review

    You will learn the project manager’s role in developing the project scope, how to develop a project charter, the project lifecycle, and the importance of the WBS in defining the scope. You will also learn about controlling the project schedule; the critical path method; PERT methodology; network diagrams; and Gantt charts.

    In addition, you will learn about managing the project budget, cost estimating and forecasting, cost applications, and earned value analysis. Discuss the project manager’s role in creating, motivating, and managing a successful team. Examine group decision-making and problem-solving models, project risk definitions/planning, procedures for managing project contracts and procurement, and quality assurance.

    An online component for practice questions, test strategy, and review is also included in this course.
