Course Outline

Lessons

Learn project management techniques and best practices in this updated version of Project Management Essentials, the 2006 PMI Product of the Year award winner.

This course will teach you how to effectively manage all phases of a project. You'll learn the project management framework of initiation, planning, execution, control, and formal closing, and discover what it takes to ensure project success. In this skills-building course, you'll focus on practical tools and techniques as you spend 75% of the course working on a project-from initiation to close. You'll work individually and in teams to write objectives, conduct stakeholder analysis, and develop a work breakdown structure and risk management plan for a case study project. Practice using estimating techniques, dependency analysis, and network diagramming. Leave class with the knowledge and tools to immediately get your projects done on time, within budget, and to specification.

Students pursuing a university-recognized and/or accredited certificate in Canada or continuing education units in the US must attend at least 90% of class time, participate in class exercises and section-knowledge checks, and score at least 70% on an end-of-class, multiple-choice assessment.

Wasn’t as advanced as I thought it would be. There was an issue when the day my course was the first time they used a new platform.. from adobe to something called zoom; I had to call support line cause it stated our instructor wasn’t present. Thankfully I called cause everyone online was in the adobe virtual classroom waiting for what looked like a teacher who didn’t show up for class (IT didn’t get anything resolved until 10mins after start time). I felt like he was really getting hung up on very basic knowledge for the first half of the course (talking about how to create tabs and drag formulas as an example). I completed files a few times before he was done explaining. There was a scheduled fire drill for them (roughly 30mins)that also cut into our time, which wasn’t deducted from the hour lunch break or the two, fifteen min breaks. I also really wish he touched base more on the automating workbook functions portion which we barely did. I'm happy there were/are those study guides (learning videos) and exams to take on my own time that I hope after I've had the class are still available for me to learn from.

Everything was great, but the instructor wasted a lot of time talking about unrelated subjects (like demo-ing different programs, talking about other classes, and talks about how Excel/technology has changed) took up way too much time. The course could have been condensed or better focus would have been great

Course was very detailed but more time would be helpful during workshops. An additional day would help lessen the course load.
