Project Management Training

Project management training at HCC.

Start or advance in your career with project management certifications and courses

If you've been thinking about preparing for the Project Management Professional (PMP) exam or taking a project management class, HCC offers a full spectrum of project management courses. Our courses are led by PMP certified instructors from Project Masters, Inc., a registered education provider recognized by the Project Management Institute (PMI). 

  • PMP Exam

    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.

    Prerequisite: 4,500 hours of project management experience to sit for the PMP exam.

    42 hours. 4.2 CEUS. No refunds.

    If you enroll in this course and in our Microsoft Project course, you may be eligible for the Workforce Development Sequence Scholarship.

  • Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP) Certification Prep

    The PMI-ACP, one of the fastest growing certifications for the agile professional, spans many approaches to agile such as Scrum, Kanban, Lean, extreme programming (XP), and test-driven development (TDD).

    Project managers who learn to use agile approaches have better collaboration skills, manage complexity, and master rapid response times.

    Our course is a hybrid, including three hours of online training.

    21 hours. 2.1 CEUs.
  • Training For Companies

    If you're seeking project management skills for your staff, you can arrange PMP training from us in a variety of ways:

    • Send employees to our classes at a group rate.
    • Have us bring classes to you any day, any time.
