Virtual Instructor-led Courses


Overview: Virtual Instructor-led Courses

Professional Development now offers virtual instructor-led courses in Business Analysis and Project Management. These courses use the same content as our in-class courses with the same titles and replicate the learning as closely as possible, including group exercises and real-time collaboration. CDUs / PDUs / Contact Hours remain the same as the in-class courses and you will receive a digital certificate of completion afterwards. These courses meet the eligibility requirements listed within the respective certificates and you can mix and match the delivery method (i.e. complete Managing Complex Project in-class and Juggling Multiple Project virtually).

To maximize your learning we recommend utilizing a space where your interruptions will be minimized. You will require reliable high speed Internet, at least one large monitor (i.e. not just a laptop screen) or two separate monitors, the ability to run web-meeting software (i.e. Ring Central, Go-To Meetings, Zoom), and a web camera.

The list of upcoming course start dates is listed below.

Client Feedback

"I was skeptical about online participation. [The online learning platform] worked great. The Miro board was surprisingly easy to use. In some ways, participation was enhanced (versus in class). Hopefully, the word gets out and more students have confidence in the online offering of this course."
