Program Overview

Our Project Management Certificate program gives you the in-demand skills necessary for a variety of career opportunities.

Knowing how to effectively scope, source, manage, and implement a project transcends industries and roles, making you a highly valuable asset to any organization.

Based on the current edition of the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®) Guide, this 104-hour certificate program will help you develop practical, real-world skills that will enhance your career and improve your professional productivity.

Comprised of seven courses, the program begins with Foundations of Project Management and ends with a Capstone Project Simulation.

We offer the Foundations course each quarter and then rotate a selection of other courses throughout the year. While you must take the Foundations course first and finish with the Capstone Project, you may take all other courses in any order.

It will take a minimum of 5 quarters, or 15 months, for you to complete this program, and you'll pay for each course individually. The overall cost of the entire program is just over $2,000.
