Mastering Project Management with PMP® Prep

Sticky notes on board created by project manager

A project manager is in charge of the overall success or failure of a project. As a project manager, you must start by fleshing out an idea and selling it through the organization. You will then pull together your team, organize and clearly lay out the steps involved, lead the team throughout the project lifecycle, manage the budget, make important decisions that could impact the outcome of the project, engage and update stakeholders, deliver a complete project that meets objectives, ensure that there a smooth transition as the project is handed over and rolled out, and finally share the knowledge you gained along the way from successes as well as mistakes. You will have ultimate control over all parts of a project including initiation, planning, design, execution, monitoring, control, and closing.

The demand for project managers is high and continuing to rise due to an increasing number of jobs that require project-oriented skills. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the project management field is projected to grow 6% from 2022 to 2032. Project managers can work in almost any industry. Some of the more common industries for project management jobs include information technology, engineering, construction, healthcare, finance, and law. Your work environment will depend largely on the industry in which you work, but you will work closely with other people and technology regardless of the industry you choose. According to, project managers in the U.S. make $88,410 annually.

Program Description

Designed for seasoned project managers, this asynchronous, online project management certification course takes you beyond an introduction of key fundamentals to deepen your understanding and practical application of project management tools, methods, and processes. You will view project management from the perspective of a life cycle approach.

Throughout this Project Management Professional (PMP®) exam prep course, you will work through the project life cycle—from building a business case to closing down a project. You will see how all the concepts fit together and how the decisions you make in the early days of the project lay the foundation for executing, controlling, and closing the project.

If you are interested in obtaining your PMP certification, this program will provide content designed to help with your studies and overall PMP prep. The contact hours may be applied for the PMP exam education prerequisite or as professional development units (PDUs) if you are already certified.

Traditional Army tuition assistance, GI Bill® funding and traditional college financial aid does not apply.
