This program helps students gain the basic skills required to take on project management responsibilities in a professional work environment.

Frank P. Saladis Certificate in Project Management!
I took this course to develop a solid understanding of the fundamentals of project management. This course helped me to focus my existing skills into the systems of project management. I know that the knowledge I have gained has and will make me better at serving my numerous customers.
As a result of the one-on-one coaching, I was able to provide my manager with several products (homework) from the course.
Barry Wolfgram, Family Health Center of Marshfield Inc.
I enjoyed the Project Management Certificate Program because I was able to set my own pace. My instructor also worked with me to customize the course based on my specific needs and professional goals. The self- and peer-assessment that kicks off the program was very enlightening. I learned so much. Every business should send their employees through this certificate program because it provides a flexible project management toolkit that can be applied to reduce costs and improve success.
Finniam Cullen, Clinical Systems Analyst, Franciscan Skemp Healthcare
This Project Management Certificate Program was perfect for me because it was flexible and self-directed so it fit well into my tight schedule. The discussions with my instructor made the coursework tangible and directly applicable to a multi-year project I am managing at Trane. I would recommend the Project Management Certificate Program to others without Hesitation.
