Master of Project Academy – Online Self-paced PM Courses
According to the PMI’s Project Management Job Growth and Talent Gap 2017-2027 analysis, the demand for project managers over the next years is growing faster than demand for workers in any other occupation. For example, it is estimated that by 2027, employers will need about 88 million individuals in PM-oriented roles. This high demand is also motivating many project managers to pursue higher or continuous training as well as professional certification. When deciding for a mode of training, more people are now choosing self-paced online learning compared to traditional classroom training. Some of the reasons are convenience of schedule, cost, different learning style and capacity, and even ownership of the effort to learn and complete the training. One e-learning provider that offers online self-paced professional PM courses is Master of Project Academy.
