Belfast, Maine – A three-day certificate program in Project Management will be offered July 25, Aug. 1 and 8 at the University of Maine Hutchinson Center.

Participants from a variety of organizations involved in project management will benefit from this comprehensive training including nonprofit businesses as well as construction, utilities, insurance and banking organizations.

Program instructor Jim Milliken has provided management and communication consultation and training to business, industry and nonprofit organizations throughout the United States since 1986. His specialties include project management in which he holds the PMP (Project Management Professional) certification.

Consider the following classic scenario: You are responsible for organizing and managing a multifaceted activity involving people from differing specialties to create something new. Quality is essential, resources are limited and time is of the essence. This course provides the concepts, practices and skills required to manage such an enterprise.

The process starts with examining the situation and organizing the team; moves through identifying tasks and estimating resources; and concludes with setting schedules, managing risks and completing a plan. Working in teams, participants will apply and extend their workplace expertise and integrate project management competencies.

The program runs on three consecutive Wednesdays, 8:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m., is $495 per person, with need-based scholarships available. A continental breakfast and catered lunch are included.
