Project Management Principles

"I was in your PMP class; I wanted to let you know I passed the PMP® exam and am now certified! Thanks for setting me on this course – it has been a great learning experience and the knowledge gained through the whole process is going to be huge benefit for myself and my organization." -Robert S.

As a Registered Education Provider (R.E.P) of the Project Management Institute (PMI), OU PACE has agreed to abide by PMI-established quality assurance criteria.

Project Management Principles is conducted two ways: one course on site, in-person only and one course with the option to either attend on-site or via a Live Online classroom. 


Project Management Principles Overview

This course is designed for anyone responsible for completing projects/assignments on time, within budget, while meeting customer specifications and quality requirements. This course is ideal for those interested in learning the core knowledge tested on the Project Management Institute's certification exams to become a Project Management Professional (PMP)®, a highly respected and widely recognized credential. It is also perfect for those who are simply interested in advancing their education and project management knowledge.

We offer the course three times a year: In-person in fall and spring, and via a dual in-person and online option in summer. Information about the instructors can be found in the "Instructors" tab.

The course provides a foundation in the core knowledge tested on the PMP® and CAPM® certification exams as well as the necessary 35 professional development units (PDUs) required for certification; those exams are not included as part of this course. There are no prerequisites for the course. However, there are specific educational and experience requirements that must be met before one is eligible for certification through the Project Management Institute. Please see the PMI.org website for these requirements and certification details.

The course version covers all ten PMI knowledge management areas and five project phases in great depth with emphasis on practical applications and examples. The course also places equal emphasis on PMI’s Talent Triangle, the combination of technical, leadership, and strategic and business management expertise.


Please Note: Enrollment of the class is capped at 20 participants for in-person and 15 for the dual in-person and online option.

*PMP® and the PMI Registered Education Provider logo are registered marks of the Project Management Institute, Inc.
