2 day, 14 PDU course


  • Tired of being surprised on your projects? The only time you should be surprised is on your birthday!
  • This course focuses on one of the nine knowledge areas of project management, Project Risk Management.
  • Project Risk Management focuses on:
    • Dealing with the inevitable negative events which could occur on the project and determining methods to either decrease the probability of those events or decrease the impact they will have on the project, or both.
    • Dealing with the potential opportunities which could occur on the project and determining methods to either increase the probability of those events or increase the impact they will have on the project, or both.
  • In order for risks of the project to be properly defined it is necessary to interface with the key stakeholders of the project.
  • As with the other aspects of project planning, the risk plan should by no means be developed “in a vacuum.”
  • This course is designed to give you a working knowledge of risk management for projects.
  • You will be able to use these concepts the very next day on your projects thus giving you the edge over your competition.
  • This course follows the practices for Project Risk Management as outlined in the Project Management Institute, A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge, Fifth Edition (PMBOK® Guide).
