This course is aimed at providing an introduction to project management by PMBOK5 (PMBOK7 Updated) to all risk managers. If you intend to certify or maintain PMI certification you will get, including practice,the necessary PDU's.

At the end of this course you will be ready to take advanced risk management for project professionals courses and you will have an essential foundation of project management, which includes the following:

1 Project and project management,

2 Project processes and knowledge areas,

3 Project integration management,

4 Project scope management,

5 Project time management,

6 Project costs management,

7 Project quality management,

8 Project human resources management,

9 Project risk management,

10 Project communications management,

11 Project procurement management, and

12 Project stakeholder management.

The course was initially developed as an introduction to project management for risk managers, but is equally useful and necessary for all interested in heaving a project management overview, without spending 35 hours on it.

This is also included in the longer Risk Management for Project Professionals course, so if you took that course you don't need it, unless you want to reinforce your learning.

The course includes video lectures and quizzes to test your knowledge, but also practical exercises presented in the WorkBook. These exercises are optional but highly recommended. So, if you want to build a project management foundation, this course is a good choice.

Thank you! And, see you inside the course!
