University of Louisville
The University of Louisville's project management certificate program is part of the professional development branch of the Delphi Center for Teaching and Learning, which is located on the school's Shelby campus. A team of professional development educators works with local businesses to help educate and train future leaders and employees through a variety of programs, including one in project management. This team of educators is officially registered as a Project Management Institute (PMI) provider and has based their project management program on the PMI's official guide to training project managers. Students can expect to earn a project management certificate while also satisfying the PMI's Project Management Professional (PMP) credential's academic requirements upon completing the program.
Certificate of Completion in Project Management
The program consists of taking two seminar classes over a 16-week period. Students meet for three hours a week to earn the necessary 48 hours of Professional Development Units (PDUs) the program requires. Students must complete the first course, Fundamentals of Project Management, before moving on to the second course, Project Management: Practical Application. Each of these courses is taught by a certified PMP with direct work experience in the field.
Previous college-level project management coursework or PMP certification may be used to satisfy the fundamentals class. Prospective students are asked to email the program's representative to learn about other prerequisites. Interested students may also participate in the program's optional PMP Exam study course. Graduates of the program must still take the PMP Exam to be officially certified as PMPs.
