Program Overview

Program Overview

We all have good intentions, but once we start a new training project along with all the other projects we've got going, the projects can take a life of their own. In this workshop, developed in partnership with Russell Martin & Associates, participants will learn how to better manage the critical project management role that helps us deliver learning and performance solutions in a way that supports business goals. The workshop provides concrete steps to improve project management skills and a method that is repeatable yet flexible.

PMI Certifications: Russell Martin & Associates is a Registered Education Provider through PMI. Through this program, you can receive up to 14 PDUs (professional development units) toward the Project Management Professional Certification. Check with the Project Management Institute for their requirements.

ASTD Certificate Programs are learning events and a certificate is awarded to participants upon successful completion of the program. No test is given and participants are not certified. Certification is a testing event that confirms that skills, knowledge, or competencies have been acquired.
