Online Project Management Training
Online training comes in two flavors, asynchronous project management training and synchronous project management certification training. Asynchronous web-based training is passive and hence you are provided with an online course with all the meat, but with no additional support. In synchronous learning, tools like WebEx are used to create a virtual classroom, which is then delivered by an expert.
When opting for an asynchronous project management training, make sure you first try it out. For an asynchronous course to be engaging, it needs to have high levels of interactivity. If you try the demo and you aren’t bored, then go ahead and purchase it. There are too many boring online courses on the Web nowadays and most aren’t really worth the money.
Some asynchronous sources for project management certification training that you should try out are:
4) Boston University
Recommendation: ElementK's Skillsoft has a marvelous PM Challenger series, which is definitely worth the money. The series contains situational problems that project managers face in the field.
When opting for a synchronous online course, make sure the expert delivering the session is indeed an expert. In addition, if you are preparing for a certification, such as PMP or Prince2, make sure you get support past the live session. There are some vendors who will provide support until you have attained the certification. Ensure you ask for a demo before purchasing the package.
Some synchronous courses that you can use as sources for project management training are:
5) Global Knowledge
