Comprehensive project management training offered this spring

In today’s rapidly changing business environment, the ability to effectively manage projects is paramount. A well-managed project is completed on time and on budget, and meets quality expectations.

A 42-hour Mastering Project Management apprenticeship training course to be offered by Workforce Development at Pennsylvania College of Technology will give managers the tools and knowledge needed to succeed in leading such projects.

The course will comprise 12 half-day sessions – 8:30 a.m. to noon Wednesdays, from March 4 through May 20.

Tuition for the course is $1,990. Enrollees may be eligible for reduced costs under a grant from the U.S. Department of Labor, which provided funding for Modular Industry-Driven Apprenticeship Strategies (MIDAS) programs designed to expand apprenticeship opportunities for advanced-manufacturing companies.

Through Penn College’s Iris technology, training can take place simultaneously at nearly any location.

The series is aligned with the Project Management Institute’s Project Management Body of Knowledge Guide. It is designed for individuals who manage (or anticipate managing) projects – technical specialists, front line leaders and project stakeholders, among other professionals. Individuals whose functions overlap with project management tasks will also benefit from the sessions.

Upon successful completion of this course, participants may elect to pursue PMI’s Associate in Project Management certification.
