Human Resources and Continuing Studies at Western have partnered to offer a project management development program for Western employees. The program is available to Western staff and leaders who are currently leading or contributing to work projects as a regular part of their role. Western’s Educational Assistance Plan will fund the courses according to employee agreements.

THE PROGRAM

A series of four12-week courses will be offered. Classes will be held on main campus in the early evening, one evening a week for three hours beginning in September 2011. The program will meet the Project Management Institute’s (PMI) educational requirement to write the exams for the Project Management Professional (PMP) and Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) designations. The classes will provide a great opportunity to meet colleagues who are engaged in project work.

The program has four main goals:

  • Strengthen the capacity of Western employees to plan, lead, and complete projects
  • Deepen foundational knowledge through a significant professional development process
  • Develop cross-unit work relationships and sharing
  • Advance a work culture that encourages and supports the use of project management best practices

Who is the Western program for?

The program is available to Western staff and leaders who are currently leading or contributing to work projects as a regular part of their role. One of the goals of the program is to foster connections among those at Western who are doing lots of project work. Class discussions and course applications will often link to the participant’s current project experiences at Western.

Please note: If you are not currently or only occasionally involved in project work, and you would like to pursue project management for developing your career at Western, please refer to the Continuing Studies online or in-class project management courses that are offered for the general public. These courses meet the Project Management Institute’s (PMI) educational requirement to write the exams for the Project Management Professional (PMP) or Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) designations. Educational Assistance is available according to your employee agreement. For more information go to: link to the project management page on the brochure or link to PM on our website.
