Teaching a 4 Day 36 Hour Project Management Certification Program / Class in Albany This Week

This week, I’ve had the pleasure of facilitating and teaching a 36 Hour Project Management course for students seeking to prepare for Project Management Mastery, or for Certification through PMI.  The students have taken practice tests, worked on actual project management documents, and engaged in group and individual activities to practice their skills and prepare project management plans that they can take back to their workplace.  This class and workshop had participants from a variety of organizations here in the Capital Region and beyond.

From the Project Management Institute:

To apply for the PMP, you need to have either:

  • A secondary degree (high school diploma, associate’s degree, or the global equivalent) with at least five years of project management experience, with 7,500 hours leading and directing projects and 35 hours of project management education.OR
  • A four-year degree (bachelor’s degree or the global equivalent) and at least three years of project management experience, with 4,500 hours leading and directing projects and 35 hours of project management education.

This is an overview of the requirements. For complete details regarding the PMP eligibility requirements, please view the PMP Handbook for further details.

If you do not meet the PMP eligibility requirements, you may want to look at theCertified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)® certification.

The class ran this week 8am-5pm Tuesday through Friday in a classroom on the UAlbany campus.  We finish up tomorrow with Risk Management, Procurement Management, and activities including practice PMP tests, project management plan prep and final questions and answers.
