Certified project management education
Camosun College, as well as our partner, the Applied Management Centre, are Global Registered Education Providers (R.E.P.) with the Project Management Institute (PMI)®, which means that the program has been reviewed annually and it is current to the rigorous standards of the leading international professional association for project management. You can be assured that you will learn the most up-to-date skills of project management.
Past students have received credit for this program towards undergraduate and graduate degrees through prior learning assessment; however, the final decision on credit award is always up to the granting institution.
Prepare for your PMP®
The Project Management Professional (PMP)® credential requires education, project management experience, training, and completion of an exam. This program provides more than twice the training hours needed and all of the content aligns with the most current version of the PMBOK® Guide. We also provide guidance on studying for the exam.

In their own words
Interaction and question response time was phenomenal! I have not taken any online courses before this and had heard nightmare stories about them. This experience was the complete opposite. I can not thank all the instructors/teachers enough. I truly felt comfortable asking all questions and really feel that I learned a lot.
My computer skills were poor at best and I was terrified of taking an online course. Would the instructors REALLY be there for me? My poor computer skills didn't slow me or anyone else down because it was I who set the pace and I had better, faster access to my instructors than I have ever had in a traditional classroom setting. Camosun's AMC online training is excellent value, and compatible with a busy schedule.
