Online Project Management Course

Our first online project management course is an introduction to project management.

Target Group

Beginners who want to get familiar with the project management basics.

Learning Objectives

In this course you will learn fundamentals and the basic concept of project management. In particular, you will

  • know the definitions of the most important terms,
  • understand how we setup project management as a process,
  • know and be able to build the core components of a project plan,
  • know and be able to apply project controlling in implementation phase,
  • know the main activities in closure phase.

Ideally, you use this online project management course in order to prepare for sub-sequent classroom training. We organized it into five lessons, five corresponding tests, and a final test. It takes approximately two to four hours to work through the whole course including all the tests, depending on how often you get interrupted.

Most of us prefer to go through such courses off-line in order to be independent from an internet connection. Therefore, we created a computer based training (CBT) and an e-book covering the same content and following the same structure.

CBT: Intro to PMBenefits of the CBT: It is easy to install, you are independent of the internet, and you can run the course anywhere and anytime. Its layout is similar to the on-line version and it comes with convenient navigation through a separate table of contents. Click here for more info, or

e-book: Intro to PMBenefits of the e-book: it has an index and it comes together with an answer key for all tests. E-book and answer key are both in pdf-format. Click here for more info, or
