This entry-level PK0-005 training prepares learners to take full responsibility for projects — from understanding how to think about them, to leading work on them, and communicating about them.

The same is true of their project management certification, Project+. Rather than flood you with jargon and confusing terminology, the PK0-005 exam is focused on real-world skills and knowledge of how to plan and manage projects while ensuring good communication and documenting everything that happens.
This course covers a wide range of methodologies and frameworks rather than specialize in just one place — take it and become a more thoughtful, effective manager.
