Applied Project Management Program

Are you looking for effective project management skills so that you can complete projects on time and on budget? SIAST Wascana Campus is pleased to partner with the Applied Management Centre (AMC) to bring you the online Applied Project Management Program. AMC 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 the Project Management Institute (PMI).

This online program will provide you with practical and professional skills in all aspects of project management. It is composed of six courses 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. 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 you work in.

Each course Module begins on a Saturday and ends the following Thursday. During this time, participants should expect to spend 6-8 hours on coursework plus an additional 6-8 hours on the Module assignment. Course work uses a wide variety of tools such as discussion forums, blogs, group activities, and online videos to increase interactivity between the participants. There is also collaboration with the instructor who is a certified Project Management Professionals® (PMP®)

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.

Students must have internet access, Microsoft Office (Word and Excel) and Microsoft Project. Textbooks are required at an additional cost.
