Introducing 2012 Project Management Series
New On-Demand Blended Learning
CBIL, in partnership with The Quality Group (TQG) of Atlanta Georgia, introduces a new hands-on blended learning Project Management course for individuals that want to improve their project management skills for business success and career growth. The online course, along with student guides and test provides ten hours of project management training toward the 23 hours and 35 hours for the Project Management Institute’s (PMI) Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) and Project Management Professional (PMP) testing eligibilities for the designations.
The course will be presented in a blended format with online instruction combined with classroom training and will include topics such as initiating, work breakdown structure, planning, scheduling, assigning human resources, executing, monitoring, controlling and closing.
Rob Steward, CEO of The Quality Group states: “Project Management is an essential skill set needed by Lean Six Sigma, business process improvement and change management professionals, who are typically measured by how well an improvement project is implemented. They depend on knowing and applying proven project management skill to accomplish their projects, and career goals. This course will provide valuable project management training in a format that makes it more accessible to busy professionals. Green and Black Belts can improve their career growth with these modules. The PMI testing eligibility benefits are an additional value.”
According to a Project Management training professional who uses the online TQG Project Management series for blended learning, “This series provides a practical, hands-on approach to project success. The modules cover the important core concepts and tools that integrate the details of best practices defined and outlined by PMI® in the Project Management Body of Knowledge®. The TQG Project Management series provides participants with the tools and practical methods to successfully complete projects in alignment with PMI® guidelines and standards. Also, the modules provide a quick access ‘job aid’ capability when needed. The course is a strong augmentation to our training program.” – Rob Stone, KenMar Project Six, Los Angeles, CA
The online Project Management course, along with the student guides and test, provide ten hours of project management training toward the 23 hours and 35 hours for CAPM and PMP testing eligibilities. If combined with two days (14 hours) of blended in-class time plus the final exam battery that comes with the course, the full 23 hour CAPM test eligibility standard can be satisfied. A report of completion of the online course is provided.
For the CAPM designation status, PMI notes that “PMI’s Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)® is a valuable entry-level certification for project practitioners. Designed for those with less project experience [than those seeking the PMP®], the CAPM® demonstrates your understanding of the fundamental knowledge, terminology and processes of effective project management. Whether you’re new to project management, changing careers, or already serving as a subject matter expert on project teams, the CAPM can get your career on the right path or take it to the next level.”
