Project Management

Work towards a PMP® designation.

NEW fully online Project Management offering now available!

Modules - Project Management Certificate of Completion

 

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
