Project Management for High Tech Systems (Blended)

Length: Approximately ten – fifteen hours.

Description

Are you looking for a Project Management course that offers the flexibility and convenience of a web-based course, but also offers interaction with the instructor and fellow students?

The ITS PCB Program released this project management course as both an instructor-led course through the National Highway Institute as well as a web-based course. The course content is the same for both courses; only the course presentation is different. Both versions are designed to improve the project management skills of public and private sector personnel who are responsible for managing the implementation of technology-intensive transportation projects. The course provides training related to the fundamental principles and practices of good project management; the steps of planning, designing, and implementing transportation systems projects; the types of project management tools available for managing transportation systems projects; and the basic skills required to be a good project manager.

Objectives

Upon conclusion of this course, students should be able to:

  • Define the fundamental principles of good project management.
  • Describe the general leadership and management skills required by a project manager as they relate to advanced transportation systems projects.
  • Explain the steps taken to plan, design and implement advanced transportation system projects.
  • Describe the phases of projects (definition, planning, design, & execution) and the project management techniques relevant to each phase.
  • Explore additional project management resources.
