Project management skills are needed in nearly every industry. A person does not have to have the title project manager to lead projects. It is an essential skill set that employers expect.
That’s why UW-Parkside launched a non-credit version of its popular UW Flexible Option Project Management Certificate. This program gives more professionals access to training in a format that’s right for them.
Non-credit programs are a great fit for people who want professional development to upskill or reskill. This program is for professionals who already have a bachelor’s degree (or higher), and therefore do not need to earn additional undergraduate credits. It is also an affordable way to learn and master project management skills.
“The UW Flexible Option lets adult professionals learn new skills on their own terms,” said Dr. Sahar Bahmani, Professor and Academic Director at UW-Parkside. “By offering this project management training in a new, non-credit format, we are expanding opportunities for more learners.”
The UW Flexible Option is a competency-based approach to learning, putting the student in the driver’s seat for their education. Students can leverage existing experience, go at their own pace, and study without live-log on times or requirements. Employers can be confident in the results of graduates from competency-based programs because students can only advance by showing they know the material.
“Non-credit programs, like this one, are the vehicle for lifelong learning,” said Crista Kruse, Director of Professional & Continuing Education at UW-Parkside. “This program is a rapid, affordable way to help adult learners meet the needs of the modern workplace.”
Students have up to 24 weeks to complete the program. Processes exist for students who might want to convert this non-credit program into academic credit later on, seamlessly allowing learners to. The program has a single, flat rate tuition of $2,250. However, UW-Parkside is offering a 30% new program launch discount off of tuition.
