Next Session: March 6, 2014
In the current economic situation, companies want to maximize efficiency in all aspects of their business. Employees who are not technically “project managers” are being asked to more effectively manage their projects without formal training on the topic. Additionally, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, the demand for project managers is expected to grow ten percent through 2016, creating 15 million jobs for project management professionals.
The curriculum uses lecture, in-class exercises, and practice questions to teach you what you need to know for the PMP® Exam. The small class sizes and open atmosphere will help you form a network of industry peers who are also preparing to take the exam.
