In this economy, you need every edge you can lay your hands on to maintain your job. Sometimes, however, opportunities come along that virtually hand you not merely on professional tool set, but half a dozen or so--tool sets you can use in an enormous range of career activities and in an enormous range of settings. THIS is one of the latter.
Are you interested in improving your project management capabilities? Whether you serve as a construction project manager, a technology asset manager, or a health care systems project manager, the skills and perspectives you will encounter in this unique program could spell the difference between success and failure--even between having a job, and NOT having one...

We have an entire range of formal classroom programs that will enable you to earn CEUs, and PDUs as well as being approved for up to 30 recertification credit hours toward your PHR/SPHR/GPH program.
Read on to discover how you can gain an almost immediate personal and professional edge from this unique program.
Alan Plastow, MAT, PMP, has been working with The University of Akron (Akron, Ohio) since Spring 2006 to develop and deliver a program in Project Management for the Real World. If you have an interest in taking project management methods out of the realm of complex theory and into the world of day-to-day applicability, then this professional development series is for you.
My theory behind this series design is simple: "I firmly believe that the vast majority of you are not building a NASA shuttle, Dubai Palms, a Denver Airport, or (lucky you) your own local version of Boston's Big Dig! Instead, you are managing those pesky projects that reality throws at every company of every size every day."
Am I wrong? (Let me know your thoughts.)
During Spring Semester of 2007, I introduced the first three of these customized sessions.
Course Number - 12511 - Core Project Management Methodologies
