Project Management Certificate Program


Project Management Certificate Program

The Project Management Institute (PMI), the recognized leader in the field, offers several certificates; all of which require a specified number of educational hours provided by a "recognized educational provider" and all except the entry level certificate require a specified amount of project management experience.

The Sonoma State University Project Management Certification & Exam Preparation Course will meet the 23 hour educational requirement to sit for the entry level Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) exam and will offer experienced project managers the 35 hour educational requirement necessary to qualify for the Project Management Professional (PMP) exam. The course will not include the PMI exam as that must be administered by a PMI-licensed testing facility.

Upon successfully completing the SSU course, and regardless of their status with the PMI exam, students will receive a Certificate in Project Management issued by Sonoma State University.

The proposed course will also provide training in the use of Microsoft Project, and a copy of the software will be bundled with the text. The inclusion of M/S Project training will differentiate the SSU course from other project management courses, and the issuance of an SSU Certificate in Project Management will distinguish our course from the exam-prep only courses.
