CSU, BTL Global Institute to offer three new courses

Xenia Daily Gazette

WILBERFORCE — Central State University will offer two levels of project management courses during the late spring and summer.

The classes will address the needs of those interested in understanding project management concepts and those preparing to take the Project Management Professional (PMP) or Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) certification exams.

The PMI certification exam preparatory classes offer flexible schedules and are competitively priced so that participants can choose to attend class on weeknights, Saturdays or in a hybrid schedule that includes online instruction. The offerings are part of Central State’s Workforce Development option and will be held at CSU-Dayton, 840 Germantown St. BTL Global Institute, a research and training institute based in Mason will supply the instructors.

The PMP or CAPM certification exam preparation program classes are designed for those with project management experience wanting to improve their knowledge and skill and for project managers interested in preparing for the PMP or CAPM exams.

Students will explore the five knowledge domains and 10 knowledge areas addressed in the “Project Management Body of Knowledge,” on which the PMP exam is based. For those choosing weeknight or hybrid schedules, classes begin May 2. The program is offering an experience credit or need scholarship.

The introduction to project management class is an ideal starting point for those managing projects at work or at home, while not necessarily having had formal project management training. Participants will learn the roles and responsibilities of project team members across the project life cycle and how to define and develop the foundations of a project management plan. Classes begin in July or August, depending on the format you choose.
