Learn on your own schedule
The online learning in our program is called asynchronous, which means that you do not need to be online at the same time as the instructors or the other participants. The courses are accessible from anywhere with an Internet connection. Past students have studied from all over the world - one student even studied from a camp in the middle of the Amazon jungle. You can study at a time and place that is convenient for you and your schedule.

What to expect
The courses are divided into modules that follow a weekly schedule. Each week you will learn a module or two and complete a practical assignment applying the skills learned that week. This helps you pace your progress through the courses to ensure that you are able to learn without falling behind.
Start the program in September, January, or April! The content of each module includes readings, online videos, samples, templates, exercises, and an assignment to help you learn the techniques, see how they are applied to a sample project, and then practice using the skills with a project of your own.
Our program also uses a wide variety of tools, like discussion forums, blogs, wikis, group activities, and email, to increase the collaboration between you, the other participants, and the instructor. The instructors are also available by appointment for consultation by phone or online chat. You can feel confident that you will be guided through the learning process as much or as little as you prefer.
MS Project software is required for this program. Any version will be acceptable if you already have access to the software. If you do not, you will be provided with information on accessing the latest version of Project during the first course.
