Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 10, 2011
The Quality Group (TQG) has announced version 2.0 of its online Project Management course. It is targeted at project management-focused professionals who want to improve their skills for business success and career growth. The course can also count toward PMI’s CAPM® (Certified Associate in Project Manager) and PMP® (Project Management Professional) designation test eligibility. In addition, the course will be submitted to support the REP® (Registered Education Provider) designation. The course reflects PMI’s® Project Management Body of Knowledge®.
The full course is comprised of eleven online modules:
- Planning: Work Breakdown Structure (WBS)
- Planning: Scheduling Part 1
- Planning: Scheduling Part 2
- Planning: Assigning Human Resources
- Monitoring and Controlling
- Risk Analysis, Planning, and Management
“Project management is an essential skill set needed by Lean Six Sigma, business process improvement and change management professionals who are typically measured by how well an improvement project is implemented,” said TQG’s CEO Rob Stewart. “This course will provide valuable project management training in a format that makes it more accessible to busy professionals. Green and Black Belts can improve their career growth with these modules. The PMI testing eligibility benefits are an additional value.”
“This series provides a practical, hands-on approach to project success,” said Rob Stone, a project management training professional with KenMar Project Six who uses the online TQG series for blended learning. “The modules cover the important core concepts and tools that integrate the details of best practices defined and outlined by PMI® in the Project Management Body of Knowledge. The TQG Project Management series provides participants with the tools and practical methods to successfully complete projects in alignment with PMI® guidelines and standards. Also, the modules provide a quick access ‘job aid’ capability when needed. The course is a strong augmentation to our training program.”
The online course series, along with the student guides and test, provides ten hours of project management training toward the 23 hours and 35 hours for CAPM and PMP testing eligibilities, respectively. If combined with two days (14 hours) of blended in-class time plus the final exam battery that comes with the course, the full 23 hour CAPM test eligibility standard can be satisfied. A report of completion of the online course is provided.
“The course augments TQG’s library of over one hundred modules of Lean Six Sigma courses for Black, Green Yellow And White Belts, a change management course, and ISO 9001-2008 training. They are all focused on high-impact results, with high ROI and project success being the end goals in addition to career enhancement,” said Larry Duckworth, COO of The Quality Group.
