Have you ever been so great at your job that you suddenly found yourself promoted into a management role, despite having little or no formal management training? That makes you an “accidental project manager”. Of course, the expectations on you are the same as everyone else, and it can be overwhelming to enter such a role without the tools and techniques you will need for success.

This course is designed to help give you the core knowledge required of all project managers to successfully plan, initiate, plan, execute, control, and monitor the competing constraints of a project, including scope, cost, quality, time, scope, and resources. It will help you gain an edge with tools and techniques you can use during the entire project lifecycle, as well as best practices for successful project management.

The course, which is aligned to the PMBOK® Guide, 5th Edition, also provides a review of the terminology and skills which should aid intentional project managers and PMP®-certified professionals.
Completing this course gives you eight Professional Development Units (PDU’s) you can apply toward PMP® certification to the Technical Skills continuing education requirement of the PMI® Talent Triangle.
