Those who have never felt the heat of a looming deadline or overseen a rough beta test might think the job of a project manager is pretty easy. All you do is give orders, then sit back and look busy, right?
That perception couldn’t be further from the truth. These days, methodologies like Agile and Six Sigma have fine-tuned the process of software development (or any big project launch) into a bona fide science. But just like any science, new discoveries are always being made, and today’s successful project managers need to keep up with constant innovations in AI and data science. Hence the high demand for project managers that really know their stuff (and the accordingly high salaries).
One great entryway into this rewarding field is the Premium 2020 Project Management & Quality Management Certification Bundle. Project managers need a broad knowledge base, and this e-learning package covers a lot of ground in 120 hours of training. As the title implies, these classes are completely up to date with the latest methodologies.
There are multiple courses to get you ready for the Project Management Professional certification exam, including an extensive walk through of the PMBOK (Project Management Book of Knowledge) Version 6, new for 2020. You’ll also find courses on the Certified Information Systems Security Professional and Risk Management Professional exams, making you invaluable in any area of a development team.
Or maybe your company uses Scrum to get things done? That’s covered here, too, with an overview of how to keep goals nimble in the fast-paced, value-focused system. Additional courses provide a roadmap to mastery in Six Sigma, along with technical training in the Minitab software that keeps it on track.
In short, these 11 courses give you all the tools you need to ace the certification exams for today’s major project management methodologies. That’s invaluable for anyone on the hunt in today’s job market. And right now, PCMag readers can get 98 percent off the price of The Premium 2020 Project & Quality Management Certification Bundle, available for just $45.99.
