ODU's Project Management Exam Prep will prepare you to take and pass the Project Management Professional exam or the Certified Associate in Project Management exam.
Expand your professional skills and become proficient in integration management, time and cost management, human resources management and more.

Two Paths to Choose From
Whether you’re new to the project management field or a seasoned professional, are looking for a for-credit option or a non-credit program, we have a path that fits your needs.
  • Professional Path (Non-credit option)
    • Primarily for those who have a background in managing people and projects
    • Not for credit (may qualify for employers' professional development programs)
    • Classes meet once a week from 6 - 10 p.m.
    • $1,250 total cost
  • Foundation Path (For-credit option)
    • Primarily for those who seek instruction in project management in addition to exam prep
    • Foundation Path students complete two components:
      • Attend on-campus exam prep sessions, which meet once a week from 6 - 10 p.m. for nine weeks
      • Complete an eight-week online Project Management course, which begins one week after the on-campus component
    • Note: the online course component earns students three credit hours (meeting many employers' tuition reimbursement requirements)
    • Cost: $1,950 (includes exam prep course books; textbook for the online class will need to be purchased separately)
