Project Management

Work towards a PMP® designation.

NEW fully online Project Management offering now available!


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.
