CPO 5-Day Workshop Fort Riley – OPEN

CPO 5-Day Workshop Fort Riley

Project management is a powerful tool for addressing the complex needs of today’s organizations.

Unlike narrowly focused fields – such as HR, marketing, finance or IT – project management brings together an array of skill sets spanning creative and critical thinking, leadership, risk, change and stakeholder management.

Simply put, project management provides a structured yet flexible framework for tackling a diverse range of initiatives faster, better and in a cost efficient manner.

That is why project management is the most in-demand occupation in the world today.

Certified Project Officer (CPO)

A Certified Project Officer (CPO) is a fundamental contributor to any project team.

They have been examined on at least 30 hours of project management study, and can employ project management knowledge in a wide variety of settings, taking responsibility for their own work performance.

Certified Project Officers can apply their military rank and experience to fast-track Certification at higher levels, including as a Certified Project Professional (CPP), Master (CPM) or Director (CPD).

Over five (5) intensive workshop days you will translate your hard-earned and proven military leadership experience into the highly-prized civilian language of project management.
