How it Works

When are the courses held?

Koury Business Center at Elon University.  Click here for directions.

How are the classes structured?
Classes are structured to provide knowledge and practice with project management tools and methods.  We will take an active approach to class activities, and participants will be engaged in learning project management material by completing exercises, role plays, discussions, simulations and case analyses. Participants will also have the opportunity to interact with other project management professionals.

Is there course work outside of class?
No, there is no “homework” or out-of-class preparation required. Each module is a self-contained course in a specific project management topic or knowledge area.

Who teaches the courses?
The courses are taught by award-winning Elon University faculty who have real-world experience with project management and current certifications (CAPM®/PMP®) in project management from the Project Management Institute.

Do I have to take the courses in a specific order?
Ideally, PM-100, PM-201, PM-202, PM-205 (the courses required for the Certificate in Project Management) should be taken in order. The additional courses required for the Certificate in Project Management Leadership (PM-203, PM-204, PM-206, PM-207, PM- 208 and PM-300) will be offered in sequence following the presentation of PM-100, 201, 202 and 205. If you are planning to take courses as professional development activities without pursuing a certificate program, you may take any course at any time.

What if I can’t participate in a course on the day it is scheduled?
If you miss a session, you will be allowed to make up that session during the next scheduled program at no additional cost.

When do I receive my certificate?
At the completion of the program, you will receive your certificate if you have met the minimum requirements.
