“Extra Blended” Project Management program renewed for 2016
GREEN BAY — The Wisconsin Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay announced their renewal of their certificate in project management program, which they term virtual or “extra blended,” without a fee increase. The program allows students to choose their instructor.
According to lead instructor of the Certificate in Project Management Program, Kay Wais, PMP, MPM, “Many students in this [certificate in project management] program are working toward a PMP certification, though many are looking to hone their project management skills for themselves and their employers. This program adapts to their specific needs. Health care organizations, insurance companies, and manufacturers are the latest in truly seeing the value of project management skills.” The program’s flexibility is proven in its optional use of webcams and screen sharing technologies to help in the student sessions. Students can gain experience managing virtual teams with the real-time communication technology that project managers use today.
The Certificate in Project Management Program has flexible content options for learning the fundamentals, for preparing for the PMP® (Project Management Professional) exam, and for project management specialty areas and industries. Students have the option to work with their instructor, chosen by them, to help build their personal project portfolio to demonstrate professional project plans, including in interview situations. Students work at their own pace and the Certificate is earned after holding six sessions with their instructor and completing 56 learning hours of activities.
