PM Crash Course®—eLearning Course

Lessons and Learning Objectives

Online Course Overview

Every year, thousands of people are thrust into projects or project management roles at their companies. In fact, many project managers are assigned to or even placed in charge of high-profile projects—potentially worth millions of dollars to their organizations—with no tools, no direction, and little structured training. If you've recently been propelled into a project management role at your company, RMC can help!

This 8-hour online course in real-world project management is perfect for people who are looking to get projects back on track, find easy-to-use tools that can make an immediate impact, or too busy to learn the fundamentals of project management. If you feel like you're winging it, running out of time, or losing control, you need this 8 hours of online training to start managing your projects the RIGHT way!

This online, interactive, multimedia-based course is ideal for people who wish to participate in structured project management training, but at the same time work at their own pace—without travel or days out of the office. The course is based on Rita Mulcahy's best-selling book PM Crash Course® Second Edition, and consists of a wide variety of online tools and learning aids including games, exercises, a course workbook, and more.
