Project managers are responsible for determining a project's schedule by sequencing activities, estimating time and resources needed to complete project work, and controlling the schedule as the project progresses. This course provides students with information, tools and techniques to use to develop and control a project schedule, determine the initial critical path and find activity slack. Students will learn about processes to use when developing a project's schedule, estimating activities, estimating durations and resources, and controlling the project schedule to reduce risk; in addition, students will practice creating a Gantt chart. This course provides 12 professional development units in three 4-hour workshops.
