The Oshkosh Chamber in partnership with Andy Miller, Senior Lecturer at UW Oshkosh, will be offering a  "Introduction to Project Management" class series beginning in April. The series will be 8 hours spread out over two months (four sessions), with a combination of lecture and facilitated group workshop. The goal will be for participants to leave with tools and techniques they can use to begin more effectively managing projects. The seminar will follow the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK), the global standard for project management, to allow participants to come to a common understanding of project management concepts and terms.


Upon completion, each participant will be issued a certificate. This counts as 8 hours towards certification as a Project Management Professional (PMP) through the Project Management Institute (PMI). PMI requires a total of 35 hours for this certification. For questions about this series contact Jessica Sosnoski at Jessica@oshkoshchamber.com or (920) 303-2265, ext. 20.
