Extra blended learningExtra blended learning
- Announced Friday, August 21, 2015

The term “blended learning” course is designed to include both classroom and online elements with the benefits of offering some schedule flexibility as to when the student does their work, as long as it fits between the normal course start and end dates. Successful Project’s Certificate in Project Management Program, has been labeled an “extra blended” course by many of the universities that use it because it offers much greater flexibility and additional technologies compared to their other blended learning courses. The Frank P. Saladis Certificate in Project Management Program offered through Successful Projects contracted universities includes the optional use of webcams and screen sharing technologies to both help in the student sessions, and so the students gain experience managing virtual teams with the real-time communication technology project managers often use today.”


The Certificate in Project Management Program has flexible content options for learning the fundamentals, for preparing for the PMP® (Project Management Professional) exam, and for project management specialty areas and industries. Students have the option to work with their instructor to help build their personal project portfolio to demonstrate professional project plans in interview situations. Students work at their own pace and the Certificate is earned after holding six sessions with their instructor and completing 56 learning hours of activities.
