You’ll learn to initiate, plan, execute, monitor and control resources in order to achieve project goals. While focusing on technology projects, you’ll examine the nine knowledge areas outlined in the Project Management Institute’s Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) Guide. You’ll be able to apply integration, scope, time, cost, quality, human resources, communication, risk and procurement management to any project.
Boost your organizational value with increased knowledge of industry methods and trends
Franklin’s Advanced Certificate in Project Management will familiarize you with the tools and methods necessary to build or improve your project management skills. You’ll learn how to leverage the phases of the project lifecycle – concept, delivery, maturity and retirement – in order to better control deliverables. You’ll also be exposed to the agile manifesto and other methods used to manage projects.
Because our curriculum follows the PMBOK, a fundamental resource for project management, you can be confident that you are gaining relevant industry knowledge endorsed by the Project Management Institute (PMI).
Get the hands-on training you need to earn certification and get credit toward a bachelor’s degree
As part of the certificate review course, you’ll review what you’ve learned by completing exams and project work that prepares you for the certification exam. Upon completion of your last course you will have completed the required number of project hours and therefore will be eligible to sit for the standardized exam to earn the CAPM, Certified Associate in Project Management or PMP, Project Management Professional.
You can also use your certificate as a jump start to a bachelor’s degree in Information Systems from Franklin by transferring in up to 16 hours of undergraduate credit.
