Curriculum & Schedule

During the Summer and Fall 2020 semesters, professional development and certificate classes will be offered in two formats: Flex Learning and Online. Flex Learning classes are taught in real-time by Georgetown instructors using Zoom video conferencing. Online classes are taught using Canvas, our learning management system, and can be completed at your own pace. Both formats are designed to provide our professional learners with a high-quality, engaging educational experience. For more information on which format is best for you, please contact Program Support at pdcprograms@georgetown.edu.

For the best learning outcomes, we strongly encourage you to take Project Management Fundamentals as your first course and Managing Projects in the Real World as your last course. You must successfully complete the four core courses and two elective courses for a total of 8.00 Continuing Education Units (CEUs), which is equivalent to 80.0 contact hours. All six courses must be completed within a two-year period.

  1. Project Management Fundamentals (Required; 2.4 CEUs)
  2. The Project Manager's Toolkit (Required; 1.6 CEUs)
  3. Leading Project Teams (Required; 0.8 CEUs)
  4. Elective 1 (0.8 CEUs)
  5. Elective 2 (0.8 CEUs)
  6. Managing Projects in the Real World (Required; 1.6 CEUs)
