Project Management

Work towards a PMP® designation.

NEW fully online Project Management offering now available!

Modules - PMP® Exam Prep


Please note: Due to the recent changes in programming due to COVID-19, all Project Management modules will be available through online and virtual classrooms.

Online courses will consist of a mixture of instructor-led learning, individual work, case scenarios, and assignments/project work.​

Virtual classes will be held online using a combination of synchronous (live/real-time) instructor-led sessions, supplemented with asynchronous (everyone works separately) activities. Online attendance is mandatory and you are required to attend all synchronous sessions as they will be part of the contact hours necessary for the Project Management Institute (PMI) development units. The synchronous sessions will take place from 9 am-12 pm and 1-4 pm each day of your module. In order to claim the contact hours necessary for PMI, grading is applied as part of the mandatory attendance requirement.

Registration for fall courses will open on July 14, 2020.

Please note: Due to COVID-19 implications, the PMI has extended the deadline for writing the final version of the current PMP exam.  Originally, the final date was June 2020 but this has been extended to January 2021. As for the May offering of our Exam Prep Bootcamp, if the situation with COVID-19 requires us to cancel this offering, we will run another session mid-fall (dates coming soon) to prepare anyone who is intending on writing the PMP exam before the January 2021 deadline.
