  • 1.2 CEU/12 PDU/Credits/Units
  • MDV976aCourse Code

This is one of four courses in the CEG Project Management Certificate Program. It is aligned with A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide), Project Management Institute, Inc., 2013. The course covers project planning within the Project Scope Management and Project Time Management Knowledge Areas.

This course provides participants with training and practice in two key tasks in project planning: defining project scope and developing a project schedule. As part of a case study, participants analyze project requirements to produce a WBS (work breakdown structure) that defines what the project deliverables will include. Later in the course, the WBS becomes a key input as participants develop a project schedule. Participants learn that scope and schedule, while important, must be balanced with other competing project constraints.
