Looking for project management skills? Val Wood, BIS, Development Services Manager, in conjunction with the Bureau of Human Resources, Training and Development, is looking into the feasibility of offering a pilot Certificate Program in Project Management in Augusta. The program that is being explored is the Boston University program.
The proposed certificate program consists of 8 courses tailored to State policies and procedures. The courses are: Building High Performance Teams; Customer Focused, Quality Driven Project Management: Conditions of Satisfaction; Project Planning and Control; Managing Project Risk; Effective Project Cost Management; Managing Negotiations and Change; Project Procurement and Contract Management; Simulation of Real World Project Management. The complete program requires a commitment of 18 class days over the course of about 8 months.
The estimated cost of bringing the program to Augusta is $4,000 per participant assuming a total registration of 20. There are 10 seats that need to be filled before the program can be brought onsite. Billing for the courses would be done incrementally for the duration of the program.
