Project Management Certificate
Every type of occupation employs project managers. The Pierce College Project Management program teaches students to apply industry standards to plan, execute, monitor, control and close a project. These are marketable, high demand workplace skills that can benefit students seeking to enter a competitive workforce, as well as veteran workers needing to refresh their skills and pursue promotion opportunities.
The Project Management classes must be taken in sequence. A new sequence starts in the fall and winter quarters only.
Students can complete the 28-30-credit certificate in less than one year. A two-class Project Management option is also available. Call or email for more information.
To start the certificate, students must have earned a 2.0 grade point average or better in Business 105, English 101, or equivalent, or receive instructor's permission.
Project Management is a professional/technical training program and does not transfer to a four-year college.
