Applied Project Management Program
LOCATION(S): Distance Learning Online
LENGTH: 14 weeks
Are you looking for effective project management skills so that you can complete projects on time and on budget? Saskatchewan Polytechnic is pleased to bring you the Applied Project Management Program. This online program will provide you with practical and professional skills in all aspects of project management. Participants in this program often work as project managers, supervisors, or project coordinators and have project work experience that puts the learning into context - no matter what industry they work in.
Saskatchewan Polytechnic is a Registered Education Provider with the Project Management Institute (PMI)®, the largest international professional association for project managers. This program provides the necessary training to apply for the PMP® or CAPM® credentials with PMI®.
We are also a Gold Seal Accredited Course Provider with the Canadian Construction Association, and the program is accredited for the maximum number of credits towards the Gold Seal Certification.
The program is offered three times per year, starting in September, January and April. It is composed of six courses of varying lengths, which are taken over a 14-week period, although students have the option of completing it over several terms to a maximum of two years. The courses are designed to be taken in sequence to give you the opportunity to progressively work through the entire life cycle of a project - from initiation to closeout. The program finishes with a practical integration project. This final project provides an opportunity to demonstrate competency by consolidating the skills developed throughout the program. Students choose their own projects to complete the 12 required assignments. For more information, please download our Program Information Sheet.
You can access the online courses at any time of day. There is no requirement to be online at a specific time, but you must follow the weekly pace. Each module begins on a Saturday and ends the following Thursday. During this time, participants should expect to spend 9-12 hours per week on coursework and assignments.
The online courses use a wide variety of tools such as discussion forums, blogs, email, group activities, and online videos to increase interactivity between the participants. There is also collaboration with the instructor by email, phone and desktop sharing.
Anyone can learn online, but online learning requires different skills than learning in a classroom. It's important to know what to expect, to understand how to succeed in online learning, and to identify any barriers that may hinder your learning in an online environment.
Complete this questionnaire to help you identify if learning project management online is appropriate for you at this time.
All instructors have their Project Management Professional (PMP)® credential and many years' experience working as project managers and teaching project management.
