Project management provides valuable training that will help you organize, manage, and successfully complete projects. This
online course shows you how to implement internationally recognized project management principles in a history/nonprofit context. Using a real-life project they bring to the course, participants apply project management principles to complete a project charter and scope diagram they can then use to begin or continue their project in an efficient, orderly and open manner. The spring session of this course is now open for registration. There is a 20-participant limit and our courses typically fill up before the registration deadline, so don’t delay.
