Become an Effective Leader

Behind every project delivered on time and on budget is a project manager who can communicate effectively and manage a team from initiation through to planning, execution, control, and closing.  Our Project Management program gives you the skills needed to excel in project delivery in a wide variety of disciplines, along with a toolkit you can put to work immediately whether you are in industry, government, or a community organization.

Taught by leading project management professionals, our award-winning program focuses on the competencies needed to become an effective leader, not just a Project Manager, and gives you the edge to stand out. Drawing on real-life case studies you will learn why projects fail and how to apply project management concepts, methodologies, and tools to achieve organizational success.  Our comprehensive 5 course program is aligned with the Project Management Institute (PMI)® industry standards (PMBOK® Guide), the PMI Agile Practice Guide and PMI Talent Triangle.

We recognize busy work and personal lives impact your choices for learning and development. Our 3.5-month Live Online Bootcamp - recognized by employers for its distinct focus on team-based learning - is held Saturdays from 9 am-1 pm to reduce your time to completion. For those needing a more flexible schedule, our Online program delivers each course over 6-8 weeks guided by an Online Project Management coach with several offerings a year to enable completion within 6-9 months.
