With a projected 6.2 million project management roles added in the U.S. by 2020, the field of project management continues to be a top career choice. The ability to create and lead successful projects is no longer left solely to professional project managers; these skills are now required by the vast majority of positions regardless of industry or title.

All of the project management courses provide a variety of practical approaches and tools that can be used on the job immediately.
