For anyone who adores organizing their Trello boards and has a knack for motivating teams, a career in project management is a natural choice. And fortunately for you, demand for these roles is expected to grow 9.3% over the next 10 years.
But in order to land a high-paying project management position and move up the ranks, you’ll need more than a certification. Hiring managers are looking for a blend of leadership abilities, knowledge of the software development process, and experience building roadmaps.
You’ll develop all of these in Technical Project Management. Learn all the skills you need to translate big picture goals into budgets and timelines, align multiple departments, and carry projects to completion one KPI at a time.
Maybe you’re a junior project manager who’s ready for a higher level role. Or your team relies on you to keep them on track, but you’ve never actually had a project management title. That’s where Technical Project Management comes in: a course we designed for anyone who’s motivated to progress their career and lead their organization to success, one KPI at a time.
