Virginia International University Announces Fall 2017 Project Management Boot Camps

According to the latest PMI-commissioned talent gap analysis conducted by Anderson Economic Group (AEG), “Demand over the next 10 years for project managers is growing faster than demand for workers in other occupations. By 2027, employers will need nearly 88 million individuals in project management-oriented roles.”

Following the industry need for certified Project Management professionals, the School of Business at Virginia International University (VIU) will offer a series of training programs for certificates in PMP, CAPM, PMI-ACP, SCRUM-SAFe, and SCRUM-PSM, beginning from September 2017.

VIU Project Management Boot Camps will be facilitated on campus by university professors with related certifications and experience. All students will be able to practice their exam via test simulators and receive individual coaching from VIU’s faculty if they fail the exam the first or second time.

The Dean of VIU School of Business, Dr. Grace Klinefelter says: “These intensive non-credit workshops will help students prepare for their certification exam and discover new career opportunities in the growing field of Project Management.”

VIU is a Registered Education Provider (R.E.P.) for PMI. You can visit our website to get more information and enroll today: https://www.viu.edu/sb/pmp.html
