Price:   $520 Member & Non-member


Supply Chain Management Association Alberta (SCMA AB) in association with Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT), offers courses in leading to SAIT’s Applied Project Management Certificate.  

In order for a project to be properly executed, critical and processes are required to ensure the project adheres to approved scope, time, cost, and quality baselines. This workshop, based on the Project Management Institute’s (PMI®) latest PMBOK® Guide, focuses on overall project change control, scope control and verification, schedule control, cost control, earned value management, quality control, and risk monitoring and control.
