It is also for students who would like to learn Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) standards-based approaches to successfully manage programs and projects. In addition, this course is also for those who desire to apply the established processes, procedures, and terminology (outlined by Project Management Institute) when solving the most common project management issues.
