Applied Project Management

The purpose of Applied Project Management (APM) is to allow professional planners to develop the knowledge, skills, techniques and tools of Project Management as these relate to the professional practice of planning.

This course consists of two main components:

  1. An online, theory-based element. Participants are introduced to key concepts of project management through video resources and articles drawn from across a broad range of project management materials. Participants will also review video interviews with experienced practitioners- peers working as project managers in various planning environments and produced specifically for this course.

    There are six modules in the online component; each takes roughly one hour to complete. Once an online module is completed, the subsequent module becomes available. Note: this section is a pre-requisite for the in-person workshop.
  2. An in-person workshop. This two-day workshop follows a case-based approach and allows participants to work with real-world information and material. The case method will generate practical discussion and critical reflection on the Project Management Institute (PMI)’s Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) 5th Edition and how it interrelates to the field of planning.

Both the online and in-person elements of this course may be claimed as Learning Units under OPPI’s Continuous Professional Learning (CPL) program.
