PMI501: History and Overview of Project Management, September 22
This class provides an Introduction to the methodologies, tools and techniques of project management as conducted using the PMBOK, Agile, Six Sigma, and Six Sigma Lean.

PMI502: Project Management Framework, September 29
This class covers the foundation for project management and conveys important concepts necessary to understand the knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques required by a successful project manager.  Additionally, this class provides an introduction to the basic "common language" and definitions fo terms used internationally by project professionals for efficient, accurate, and successful project communications no matter what the industry.

PMI503: Project Integration Management, October 6
The information in this class covers the role as well as the specific ethical responsibilities and duties of a project manager no matter what level of authority management has formally approved for them to use on the project assigned.  Integration is primarily the role of the project manager because s/he is the only one responsible for seeing the overall "big picture".  Integration means putting the pieces of the project together into a cohesive whole, while managing trade-offs among the different project objectives.  This includes keeping management appropriately informed and obtaining the approvals required to guide the project to a successful conclusion.

PMI504: Project Scope Management, October 13
This class includes the processes required to ensure that every project includes all the work and only the work required to complete the project successfully by controlling what is and what is not in the project.  Participants will be exposed to the selection processes used by management to determine those projects to be undertaken and their quantitative results. Topics and tools covered in this class are project initiation, scope planning, scope definition, scope verification and scope change control.

PMI505: Project Time Management, October 20
An unrealistic project schedule is the number one complaint of project managers and project teams. This class covers the skills and tools required by project managers to help them determine a more accurate schedule; and the application of those processes and tools required to produce and maintain a schedule that allows them to best meet a project's predetermined deadline.

PMI506: Project Cost Management, October 27
An unrealistic project budget is the second most expressed complaint of project managers. Project managers don't have to be an accountant or a math whiz to be successful; but they need to know and understand the techniques and tools to estimate, analyze, determine, report, and apply the corrective actions needed to determine an accurate project budget and keep project expenditures on track.  The use of these will be covered in this class along with providing the basic tools required for tracking and appropriately reporting

PMI507: Project Quality Management, November 3
This class covers PMI's philosophy of quality in the management of projects, how this philosophy is defined, and the project manager's role along with the tools used in quality assurance to achieve customer satisfaction.  This is different from the definition of "quality" used by most business organizations.  Also covered will be definitions of the pertinent language needed to achieve a basic understanding of assuring, conducting, and reporting quality management activities. 

PMI508: Project Human Resource Management, November 10
There are two main areas of Human Resource Management covered in this class.  The first is the area of Roles and Responsibilities of those involved in or concerned with the project along with the various techniques and tools to manage these.  The second provides an understanding of the theories and techniques of the essential soft skills needed to conduct a successful project including team building, leadership styles, conflict management and resolution, and problem solving.

PMI509: Project Communications Management, November 17
90% of a project manager's time is spent in communication.  A lack of, or poor communications is high on the list of common project problems from both project managers and management; therefore, it is important that a project manager has some background in both the hard and soft communication skills and techniques so that they can improve their own communications.  This class also provides an overview of the communication tools required by project managers to achieve a successful project conclusion.

PMI510: Project Risk Management, November 24
Some studies show as much as a 90% decrease in project problems through the use of the proactive process of risk management.  This process assures that the project manager is in control of the project instead reacting and responding to problems, issues, and changes by having to call meetings, do re-work, require overtime, and/or re-planning the project to regain control.  This class will provide the overview necessary for using the techniques and tools of basic risk management which will lead to a substantially increased rate of success projects.

PMI511: Project Procurement Management, December 1
This class provides an overview of the steps in procurement management, what happens during each step, and the role of the project manager in project procurement.  Students will be introduced to the definitions and language of basic procurement contracts as well as the types of contracts used in the procurement process.  Additionally, the class will review the knowledge and techniques required of project managers to administer, interpret, and conduct closure activities necessary for project procurement.

PMI512: Project Stakeholder, December 8
A key project objective of every project is customer satisfaction.  This class will cover the processes required to identify the people, groups, or organizations that could impact or be impacted by the project, to analyze stakeholder expectations and their impact on the project, and to develop appropriate management strategies for effectively engaging stakeholders in project decisions and execution.  Students will focus on continuous communication with stakeholders to understand their needs and expectations, addressing issues as they occur, managing conflicting interests and fostering appropriate stakeholder engagement in project decisions and activities.
