Project Management for the Real World Online Training

In this entry-level PMI skills training, Steve Caseley covers how to manage each stage in the project: Initiating, Planning, Delivery, and Closing.

Each project management method has its own language, which can be a little hard to follow until you’re using it yourself. That’s the benefit of a real-world project management course like this one. Steve reviews deliverable templates from a real-world project that adheres to PMI principles.

After completing this PMI training, you’ll have a good handle on the terminology and concepts in the PMI PMBOK. This project management training no longer maps to a PMI exam, but it's still valuable training for new project managers and anyone involved in a PMI project.

For managers with PMI products, this PMI training can be used to onboard new project managers, curated into individual or team training plans, or as a PMI reference resource.

Note: This course is associated with an older edition of the PMBOK® Guide. However, this course still retains value as a training resource.

Who Should Take Project Management for the Real World Training?

This project management skills training is based on professional-level PMI training, which means it was designed for new project managers or experienced technical professionals looking to increase their knowledge about project management principles.

New or experienced professionals. One of the most common criticisms of the PMI methodology is how convoluted its terminology can be. This is a fair criticism: for the untrained or uninitiated, PMI’s body of knowledge, the PMBOK, can be intimidating. That’s why this training is perfect for anyone - even veteran project managers. With this training you won’t just learn to manage projects from planning to completion, you’ll also grasp PMI’s unique way of describing those phases and projects. It’s invaluable training for anyone even remotely interested in project management.
