Cleary University, a business university with its main campus in Howell, has announced the launch of the Project Management Professionals program, a 35-hour, instructor-led online course.
The program is designed for professionals who are already in project management. Cleary used data insights from Automation Alley, a technology and manufacturing business association in Troy, to help develop the program’s curriculum to be reflective of current employer needs.
“The course allows participants to tap directly into the knowledge of a respected business university while offering the benefit of an intimate learning environment and the flexibility of online instruction,” says Carey Monroe, director of career development at the university.
The certification from the program is industry-recognized, and is targeted to those working in IT, automotive, and consulting.
“As a university squarely focused on business education, we are consistently seeking new ways to ensure preparedness and training for the leaders of today and the future,” says Jayson Boyers, president and CEO of Cleary University. “The PMP certification addresses employers’ needs, which (provides) professionals with an expanded skill set and opportunity to expand their careers.”
The class can also be converted into six college credits at Cleary University toward a bachelor’s degree.
Registration is open for the Sept. 17 class, which is part of a five-course, accelerated series designed to introduce students to the Project Management Body of Knowledge, or PMBOK, which outlines standard terminology and guidelines. More information and registration are available here. The university has learning centers in Ann Arbor and Detroit.
