Gatton Offers Project Management Certificate Program This Fall

Are you one of the following?

  • A beginning project manager who needs to understand basic project management terminology and processes?
  • An experienced manager who’d like to update your skills?
  • An “accidental” project manager who finds yourself managing projects in your current job?
  • An aspiring project manager who wants to investigate a career in the field?

This fall, the Gatton College of Business and Economics is offering individuals the opportunity to learn proven strategies and practical, hands-on tools to drive successful project outcomes — on time and within budget.

The five-week Project Management Professional Learning Series takes place on consecutive Thursdays from 6 to 9 p.m. beginning September 16 and concluding October 14 at the Gatton College building.

“This is a wonderful program focused on the fundamental building blocks of project management, and an introduction to best practices that can be used in all endeavors by people across all industries and organizations,” said Gatton Professional Resource Director Lorna Patches, “In addition to classroom discussions, we utilize “hands-on” exercises to reinforce learning in an enjoyable, interactive environment.”

This program serves as the foundation on which all other project management development builds. It will provide 15 hours of educational credit from the Project Management Institute (PMI)® for those seeking their Project Management Professional (PMP)® certification or 15 professional development units (PDUs) for those already certified.

The instructor, Kellie McDermott, PMP®, has more than 12 years of experience providing training management, instructional design, and facilitation services. She is certified as a trainer through the Project Management Institute's Train the Trainer Program and is passionate about teaching others about project management best practices.

Registration is $1,500 for the full program and includes five weeks of instruction, the course binder, and the “Just Enough Project Management” book.
