This course is based on generally accepted project management practices and procedures.

The practical application of each process and project management terminology are covered in this course. Example project management subsidiary plans and working documents are provided and discussed throughout the course. The course is dedicated to developing a firm understanding of what is required for projects to be successful and to enable the repeatability of successful project management. Embedded in the course is a workshop where a case study is analyzed and the project management plan/documents are completed.
