Project management skills are a critical tool for almost any career and industry. UCSB Extension’s PMI-approved courses enable the student to acquire the skills needed to keep projects on task, on time and on budget.
“The discipline of project management enjoys increasing importance in recent years,” said UCSB Extension instructor Paul Valenzuela. “UCSB Extension’s Project Management certificate program provides the foundation in the vital aspects of the Project Management Institute’s (PMI) certification programs such as Project Management Professional (PMP) and Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM).”
Currently, there are over 1,400 R.E.P.s in more than 70 countries. These organizations include commercial training providers that design complete educational systems, academic institutions, internal training offices at corporations and government agencies.
