  This course is a 10,000 view of the Project Management topic. It is NOT a PMP® certification course, although areas that the PMI teach are covered. If you are already a PM and are looking for certification type of courses, this course will be too basic for you. This course is intended for an audience of people who already do project management as a role or are newbies getting into the area. It provides an overall look at the different topics so that you can understand the jargon thrown around in the industry. It will help explain the tools used and the processes to follow. 

  If you are looking for a deeper dive into any of the areas of this course or anything Project Management related, shoot me an email, as I can do a one-on-one session with you or create an entire course specifically on that topic.
