Foundational Project Management Education Courses:

  • BMGT1023 IT Project Management is a PMI PMBOK® Guide-based knowledge and skills application course taught by a team of certified instructors, both on-site and online. It is process-oriented and lecture-based with in-class activities and a multi-session practical Capstone Simulation Exercise from the IT domain, providing a solid foundation for professional certification exam prep.
  • BMGT1040 PMP®/CAPM® Exam Prep is an intensive professional certification examination preparation course conducted on Saturdays. The course focuses on exactly what is necessary to pass exams based on PMI's PMBOK® Guide. As the pace is fast and intense, a skills and process-oriented PM course, such as BMGT1023 IT Project Management or equivalent should be completed prior to this focused exam prep course.

If your primary goal is to pursue a professional certification with either PMI or CompTIA, ACC’s pair of Foundational Project Management Education Courses above are designed to be taken sequentially to help prepare you for these challenging certification exams.
