Project Management Simulation Workshop PM50.00

The application of knowledge is a key success factor to learning. This course goes beyond the traditional project management class by first exposing the students to a rigorous study of the successful TenStep Project Management methodology. The students are then able to demonstrate their knowledge by managing a project from beginning to end with a software-based project simulation package. This approach reinforces the concepts and principles learned for effective project management. As a result, the students are more prepared to apply the methodology to real life situations. The students are graded through a compilation of quizzes and the scores achieved at the conclusion of the project simulation.

Upon completion of this course and achieving a passing score, each student will receive the TenStep Project Manager (TSPM) certification.
