This intensive course focuses on ways participants can run projects faster and more effectively. Participants will learn how to successfully create, monitor and guide the project’s scope and critical path. Participants will diagnose and prevent problems such as scope creep, time slippage, and team conflicts. For certification as a Kansas IT Project Manager, the participant must complete PMM I, II, and III and successfully pass a final examination.
All Project Management courses have been certified with the Project Management Institute (PMI). PMI is the world’s largest project management association and administers a globally recognized Project Management Professional (PMP) credential program. PMP certification is the most widely recognized in the profession. This certification demonstrates a high level of expertise and knowledge of project management concepts and practices. By aligning course work with PMI, an organization knows that the training is founded on solid information and will support certifications which are globally recognized.
While we will not fund an individual’s certification in this program, the 2016 training program will look toward a future direction that will establish a curriculum pathway where each class (including the Kansas Project Management Certification Program) will build upon the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®) and establish a pathway that would support students who wish to work toward the globally recognized PMP certification and/or in maintaining the accreditation.
