Project Management

Work towards a PMP® designation.

NEW fully online Project Management offering now available!

Enrolment Options

 

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.  For online courses we will follow our typical online course procedures.

Virtual classes will be held online using a combination of synchronous (live/real-time) instructor led sessions which are supplemented with asynchronous (everyone works separately) activities.  You are required to attend all synchronous sessions as they will be a part of the contact hours necessary for the PMI development units.  The synchronous sessions will take place from 9-11am and 1-3pm each day of your module.  Outside of those times you will have independent work to complete as part of the module work.  This time is required also to uphold the necessary contact hours.

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

If further clarification is required, please contact our program office ccepm@mcmaster.ca

Project Management In-Person/Virtual Classroom 

In order to earn a McMaster University Certificate of Completion in Project Management in person or through Virtual Classroom, you must complete all six modules. There are three options for enrolling in the Project Management In-Person program: the full cohort, half cohort or individual modules.

 

Full cohort option for In-Person/Virtual Classroom

We highly recommend enrolling in the cohort format. This means taking all six modules sequentially in one term.

McMaster University Continuing Education Project Management Program Cohort option pathway 

Advantages: 

  • Excellent opportunity to build professional connections;
  • Build momentum with the content and better your understanding of how everything fits together;
  • Significant costs savings! *See Schedule & Fees for details;
  • Earn your Certificate of Completion in less than four months.

*Please note that a significant price reduction is offered for the cohort based on the premise that all six modules must be completed within one semester.

Half cohort option for In-Person/Virtual Classroom

Modules 1, 2, 3 or Modules 4, 5, 6

In this option, you commit to completing either the first three modules: PMP 101, 102, and 103, or the second three: PMP 104, 105 and 106.  Substituting modules is not permitted in this format.

Advantages:

  • Complete the six modules in two halves to maintain the momentum of understanding the content and working at a pace that fits your schedule and budget cycle;
  • By bundling three modules, you will receive a discounted price rather than taking each course individually or paying for all six modules at once in the full cohort;
  • Excellent opportunity to build professional connections.

Note: PMP 101 (or equivalent work experience) is the pre-requisite for all other modules.

 

Individual modules for in-person

You can also take all six modules individually, spread out over multiple terms. The number of courses you take per term is at your discretion, one example is provided below:
