Practical Project Management
Learn why projects fail and why they are successful and put that knowledge into managing your projects in the work place. This course is for new and seasoned project managers looking for a practical application of the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®). Through focusing on definitions, templates, tools, human resource management, and communication skills, you’ll discover how to apply the theories you have already learned to practical every day use. Keep your PMP® certification credentials active with the PDUs offered for this course!

Remote classes are available for individuals who cannot participate on the Stockton campus. All that is required is a computer with internet access and a head set with a microphone. When registering, please advise CPCE that you will be participating over the web and they will notify the teacher. A link to your classes will be forwarded to you at the email address of your choice.
Your class times will be the same as the actual class times. In the email you will be given instructions on how to link into the live class. You will be able to communicate with the other students and the teacher via the web. The class will be conducted as if you are present in the classroom. You will see the screens that the students who are physically in the classroom see.
If this doesn't work for you there is still another option. Should you prefer to link into the session at a different time or day and playback the class lecture, you can do that as well. This does have to be arranged ahead of time so that the instructor records each session. This gives you the flexibility to take the class on your own time schedule. The only caveat to this option is that you complete your last session on the last scheduled class date. Note: Your time is recorded so that you qualify for the PDUs that are required by PMI.
