Project Management Online

This comprehensive online program is designed to familiarize managers, executives, professionals and project specialists with the importance of good project launches, effective planning and scheduling, and important control and closing of a project. Participants will learn the project management life cycle. This online course does not require the students to “meet” online at specific times. However, this is not a self-paced course. Every week students are expected to complete specific reading, practice and assignment(s), to post to specific online discussions, and to assess your weekly progress using the weekly quiz. Students can do this at any time during the week as long as assignments are completed by the end of every Sunday. Celine Gullace, Ph.D., PMP
