Project Management Training - PMP Certification Classes

Managers often find it challenging to complete projects on schedule, and within budget. The delays occur most of the time because they are pulled in many different directions throughout the course of their workday.

We at Michigan Technology Services believe that comprehensive project management skills for business and IT staffers will become as important as computer skills. Why? Because as technical projects become increasingly complex, department leaders across North America will be asked to do more work with all too often fewer resources.

Project management training courses and related PMP certifications for staffers involved in projects have been developed. Several of Michigan Technology Services' instructors have experience as project managers for large scale IT initiatives. They will be able to effectively teach you how to manage your projects by highlighting some of their real life experiences at major Detroit area corporations.  

Some of the topics covered in the Project Management class include:

  • Describe professional project management.
  • Initiate a project.
  • Plan project work.
  • Develop project schedules.
  • Develop cost estimates and budgets.
  • Plan project quality, staffing, and communications.
  • Analyze risks and plan risk responses.
  • Plan project procurements.
  • Execute project work.
  • Manage project procurement.
  • Monitor and control project work.
  • Monitor and control project schedule and costs.
  • Monitor and control project performance and quality.
  • Monitor and control project risks and procurements.
  • Close the project.

We also offer Microsoft - Project 2010, 2013 and 2016  classes.
