Project Management

Project Management

Project Managers ensure projects are properly executed and delivered on time and on budget. Project Management is a growing field both globally and locally, with an estimated 11% to 27% growth in Lane County by 2027. Globally, 2.2 million additional Project Managers will be needed by 2027!

Lane’s Project Management training is designed to be flexible, convenient, and affordable. All our trainings are held virtually, saving you valuable time and money. Even though your classes are all online, they’re taught live, so you’ll get many opportunities to interact with your instructors. Whether you’re interested in just taking one specific class or enrolling in the complete Project Management noncredit Certificate Bundle, our training is flexible enough to fit into your schedule. Spring and Fall Cohorts meet twice a week and complete in about 6 months. The new morning cohort option meets once a week and takes about 9 months to complete.

Is the Project Management program for you?

Project Managers are great communicators with the ability to hold the bigger picture while simultaneously keeping the details of a project in mind. As both leaders and team players, project managers need to be able to inspire collaborators, while being ready to roll up their sleeves and get to work. Project managers need to have great time and task management skills. They need to thrive in collaborative environments, but be just as comfortable working independently while knowing how to maintain a balance between the two.

In addition to project management skills, effective project managers also need to have specific industry knowledge. Most people who enter project management are already experienced in a career field, and “upskill” their resume with Lane’s Continuing Education’s Project Management training. Using their subject area expertise in combination with Project Management training makes them an indispensable member of any work team, with many people earning promotions. If you have depth of experience in your current field or multiple career areas and want to take on more responsibility and status in your career, project management may be a great professional development opportunity for you.

What will you learn in the Project Management program?

Cohorts begin in fall and spring terms, and complete all 8 classes in less than 6 months! Once all 7 classes are passed, you’ll receive a Training Certificate from Lane Community College.
