USC’s 4 day in-class intensive certificate program was intended for professionals who want to distinguish themselves and validate their project management expertise by obtaining the globally recognized Project Management Professional (PMP®) certification through the prestigious Project Management Institute (PMI®). USC's Project Management Certificate program provides the 35 hours of training required to take the PMP® certification exam. The program thoroughly explores the inner and outer workings of project logistics, management, constraints, risks and execution necessary to deliver projects within the desired scope.

Even if you choose not to pursue your PMP® certification, any professional responsible for managing projects will benefit from this certificate and training. Whether in the private or public sector, individuals who have earned their project management certificate will have the expertise to execute successful projects.
