The training program will consist of a series of 10 sessions. Session 1, the Overview, was a 90-minute lecture providing an overview of the role of the Project Manager and the Project Management discipline.

The training program continues with a series of monthly 60-minute Knowledge Area sessions. Sessions 2-10 are based on the Knowledge Areas in the PMBOK. The Knowledge Area sessions will have a Lecture component and a Lab component. The Lecture will introduce and describe the Knowledge Area.
