Spring 2022 | Live, virtual sessions

How do you prepare for a project? What are the project deliverables, work assignments, financial constraints and when is it due? These are some standard questions associated with project management. The live, virtual series focuses on the intricacies of particular process groups and offers “how to” examples for project planning, scheduling, monitoring and reporting procedures.


This certificate series benefits anyone with project management responsibilities and provides valuable project management skills, as well as the confidence to apply them properly.  Participants will be able to transfer knowledge learned from these sessions to real-life projects of all sizes, across all industries and disciplines.
