The Project Management Professional

Project Management Professionals have a firm understanding of the basic competencies involved in management and oversight, including areas such as effective time management, managing multiple projects simultaneously, scope and estimation of project undertaking and devising a detailed project plan alongside project risk and cost analysis. The course includes training and exam preparation for students to become a Project Management Professional (PMP®) as designated by the Project Management Institute. The PMP is the most important industry-recognized certification for project managers. Globally recognized and demanded, the PMP demonstrates that individuals have the experience, education and competency to lead and direct people and helps individuals to stand out to employers and maximize their earning potential overall.

The Project Management Professional Program

Guiding a team toward successful project completion can be extremely taxing but also incredibly gratifying for supervisors and managers. More than that, however, juggling multiple projects at once, managing multiple staff and dealing with the individual and collective personalities on the project can be incredibly overwhelming without a fundamental understanding of how to get the most out of your team and really get things done. Valuable programs like the Project Management Professional (PMP) from the Project Management Institute (PMI) ensure students are best apt to guide their staff through this challenging process.

While the PMP certification is incredibly valuable, pairing this credential with management and leadership development really ensures professional success in this area. For the manager running the project or the project manager aspiring to run a team, the Project Management Expert course will ensure students are ready to take on these challenges.

After completing this course, you should be able to:

  • Identify the relationships between the Project Management Institute’s (PMI) project management framework, five process groups, and nine bodies of knowledge
  • Apply project initiation tools and techniques in order to develop a project charter
  • Develop a flexible and practical project management plan covering the major project lifecycle processes and phases
  • Use recommended best practice tools, techniques, and processes to plan for Quality, Human Resources, Communication, Risk, and Procurement
  • Explain project execution’s relationship to integration management, the factors that contribute to success, and the tools and techniques used
  • Apply monitoring and control techniques to measure progress on the project and forecast project completion requirements
  • Administer the processes for closing a project and completing project procurement
  • Apply the Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct to specific situations
  • Perform the preparation techniques, including identifying knowledge gaps, in order to significantly improve your chances of passing the PMP certification exam
