Online Project Management Certificate Program

About the Program
Since the inception of the Project Management Institute (PMI®) in 1969, project management has grown in popularity as a profession and as a skill-set sought by many organizations.  Organizations increasingly need to maximize productivity while minimizing resources and seek employees that possess these skills.

The Project Management Certificate Program is designed to give project managers and team members the tools and skills necessary to successfully manage and contribute to the success of their projects, regardless of industry or specialization. Best of all it is 100% on line, so even busy professionals can participate when it is most convenient for them.

The course content is based on A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide), Fifth Edition, 2013, published by the Project Management Institute (PMI®). Project Management Professional (PMP®) Certification is available through the Project Management Institute. Candidates can satisfy the educational contact hour requirement by successfully completing this program. CSUB Extended University is an approved PMI® Global Registered Education Provider (R.E.P.).

Students can take all five courses and receive a certificate of completion, or just the courses needed for skill development and improvement, or to fulfill the PDU requirement for the PMP® Certification.

Admission to the Program
Anyone can apply and admission is permitted during the Fall and Spring semesters; however, if you do not have any project management background or knowledge it is suggested that you apply for the Fall or Spring quarters when the sequence of courses start with MGMT 801.

You can download an application or you can request one by e-mail.  Complete and submit the application, along with a $35 application fee, by mail or in person to our office.

Courses can also be taken individually for PMP® Recertification or to meet education requirements for the PMP® Exam.  You only need to submit an application if you desire to receive a certificate of completion from CSUB.

Program Requirements
To receive a certificate of completion, all five courses must be completed with a grade of "credit".  To obtain credit in a course you must receive 70% or higher. You can complete the program in as little as two quarters.
