The Project Management Certificate involves the study of the principles, practices, and methods for providing leadership to work groups and teams engaged in the completion of complex projects.
Courses concentrate on project management principles and methods applied in initiation, scope definition, planning, computerized cost control and scheduling, quality control, quality systems, risk management, procurement, and project termination.
This certificate provides entry-level credentials appropriate for persons with technical expertise and substantial work experience.
These courses are not preparation courses for the PMP or CAPM examinations. Each will provide more than 40 contact hours of basic education on project management related concepts, tools, techniques, and methodologies. To assure that state-of-the-art practices are introduced, the Project Management Body of Knowledge is the basis for selecting content to be included in these introductory courses.
To learn more about each course, the prerequisites, and any additional degree requirements, we suggest going to the Graduate Catalog.
In order to be awarded the certificate, all required courses must be completed with a "B" or better. All certificate required coursework must be completed in the Department of Technology at Illinois State University.
All requirements for a graduate level certificate must be completed within six calendar years, beginning with the date the student first registers as a graduate level certificate student.
