Excellent instructor. Very detailed-oriented, explained topics well. He related tasks to real-life events. Looking forward to Level II.

The instructor was so knowledgeable and really organized. Provided real-world examples and was an engaging speaker! It really helped to solidify the information provided.

Our project management team was impressed by the instructor's knowledge of the platform and his willingness to troubleshoot our questions. If he didn't know the answer offhand, he showed us where we could look it up, or looked for different solutions until he found one that addressed the question we had. It was great to work with someone who was so genuinely enthusiastic about teaching and connecting with people - it was truly one of the best courses I've ever taken.

Great introduction to Microsoft Project for someone with no prior experience.

A great introduction to Project Management, including creating a project, assessing needs, organizing, and executing.

The instructor was fabulous and they provide you with the materials to learn. Feel very fortunate I was able to take these courses!

My instructor was very kind. He related project management principles to our respective fields and industries, engaged evenly with students online and in class, and provided in-depth information into what he intended to go over while exposing us to other details in project management that might just be good to know. 10/10!

Great training course, with a knowledgeable instructor and well-thought-out presentations. The Level 1 content was brilliant and expanded on a lot of the main features of Microsoft Project.

I never used Microsoft Project before today. After completing this class, I have a good foundation and will definitely continue on to Microsoft Project Level II.

Learned the workings of Microsoft Project and saw the usefulness and applicability to my work as a Construction Manager.

I came in nervous, afraid, and hesitant. I left feeling strong, confident, and knowledgeable about PM execution.

Very informative and taught at a good pace, which makes the class easy to learn and understand.

There are times when we feel as if age matters with Career Centers many are given the chance to gain experience they once thought were unachievable. Never give up on your education there are many resources available.

Michael was extremely knowledgeable and was able to explain the material in a way that everyone understood.

Introduction to Project Management

The study of project management covers the process of researching, planning, launching, and overseeing projects from start to finish. Examples of a project include designing a website, opening a new office location, and introducing a new product to an existing brand. To be considered, a “project,” as opposed to a task, the work must meet specific requirements:

  • Unique and original - a project is not a typical process or standard daily duty, it involves an uncommon undertaking
  • Temporary - a project by nature is not permanent, it has a definite beginning and end
  • A specific aim - a project has a particular purpose––the goal of the project is to complete a pre-defined objective

Long before it had a name, skilled teams used project management principles to complete large operations, such as launching a rocket into space or designing a railway system. In the 1900s, project management gained official recognition as a professional skill, and is now a recognized occupation, with an increasing number of universities offering project management as a degree concentration. In 1969, PMI (the Project Management Institute) was established, and it maintains oversight as the governing body in this field.

Though Project Management has its roots in construction, the principles are now used in a diverse group of fields from medicine to real estate and computer programming. PMI developed the PMBOK® framework for project management, but in recent years, new approaches have popped up, such as agile, scrum, and PRiSM. Additionally, a growing number of technologies are dedicated to project management, including Microsoft Project, Trello, and Basecamp. 

Project Manager Jobs and Duties

Project Managers have three primary areas to supervise

  • Scope - the tasks the project includes
  • Cost - the budget for a project
  • Time - the overall timeline of the project

Within a particular project, the project manager works on a variety of tasks, and the day-to-day looks different for every project manager. If you’ve ever worked on a project in which everyone does their job, and everything goes as planned, the project manager position may seem unnecessary. However, if a project exceeds the budget, runs longer than expected, or lingers on with uncompleted tasks, the need for a project manager is obvious.

Day-to-day duties of a project manager vary widely depending on the industry, but may include the following:

  • Working with project stakeholders to determine project duties
  • Overseeing the project timeline
  • Managing the project budget
  • Identifying and mitigating potential risks
  • Creating SOPs and best practices
  • Implementing methodologies to improve processes
  • Writing project reports and updates as needed
  • Supervising a team of project professionals
  • Updating tasks in project management software
  • Reviewing work submissions of team members to ensure quality

Project Management Courses at Career Centers

At Career Centers, we offer a variety of courses for aspiring project managers that are new to the field and experienced project managers that want to take the next step in their career by earning certification. Our courses are offered weekdays, evenings, and weekends to accommodate busy schedules. We also offer private tutoring and corporate training sessions.

Project Management Courses

For individuals that are considering a career in project management or those would like an overview of project management principles, the Intro to Project Management, Advanced Project Management, and Project Management Bootcamp courses are helpful. The Advanced Project Management class builds upon the introductory course and includes a more in-depth study of project management. If you are pursuing a PMP® certification, these courses may be helpful, and you may also consider our certification bootcamps. 

Certification Bootcamps

We offer comprehensive bootcamps for the CAPM® (entry-level) and PMP® (mid-level) project management certifications. In these week-long bootcamps, you’ll review the principles of project management, and be prepared to take either the CAPM® or PMP® exam. With our passing guarantee, you can rest assured that you’ll succeed on the first attempt or retake the exam free of charge.

Microsoft Project

Microsoft Project is the primary tool used by most project managers. Using Gantt charts and color coding, the system keeps track of projects and automatically flags them if they go off track. In our Microsoft Project Level 1 and Level 2 courses, you can upgrade your skills in one day.

Project Management Certification

Most project management positions require a PMP® (Project Management Professional) certification. The PMP® certification was developed by PMI and is considered the most prominent certification in the field. At Career Centers, our PMP® certification bundle, includes class preparation, a free retake of the course, a one-on-one session with a tutor, and a free retake of the exam on us, if you don’t pass on your first attempt.
