Project Management Certificate
This program provides you with skills that you can apply immediately, helping your organization meet both internal and external challenges. These courses use the vocabulary and methodology of the latest version of the Project Management Institute's (PMI) Body of Knowledge (PMBOK version 5, 2012). You'll learn about the five process groups: Initiating, Planning, Executing, Monitoring and Controlling. The courses address the following project management areas: planning and managing integration, scope, time, cost, risk, human resources, and communications.
To earn the program certificate, you must successfully complete all six core courses and pass a short exam. Individual certificates of completion will be given for each course in the program. You must attend 90% of the class hours for each course in order to receive a certificate.
The Continuing Education Units (CEU) and Professional Development Units (PDU) awarded for the Project Management Certificate courses satisfy the educational requirements needed to apply for and maintain PMI certifications. These courses, however, are not sufficient preparation for the PMP or CAPM exam. We highly recommend that all candidates for those exams take a PMP or CAPM preparation course. Courses in this program can be used to earn PDUs for PMP recertification. The classes offered by NOVA fall under PMI's Category B designation.
