About This Course

Experienced and novice project/program managers agree, communications is a critically important part of their work. It’s also an activity in which they are engaged in a majority of their time. There is no room for sloppy communications skills where key project and program communications can be misconstrued, misinterpreted or ignored resulting in significant impact to your initiatives. The primary objectives for project and program-related communications are the sharing of key information in a manner the recipients can most easily access and interpret, presented in a way they can most effectively use them. In this course, Eric Norman examines effective communications techniques, and focuses on both the message and the medium for communicating it. You’ll learn the real definition of communications and why carefully managing communications is so important, along with communications planning, content, method, mode, and how the medium enhances the message.

Earn 2 Professional Development Units (PDUs) that can be applied towards the following certifications: PMP, CAPM, PgMP, PfMP, PMI-BA;1 PDU can be applied towards the PMI-ACP, PMI-RMP, and PMI-SP certifications.

Generally when I come to the end of my PMP 3 year cycle I look for online courses, and your company is always at the top of the list :)

I used Velociteach course material in preparing for my PMP exam years ago, and Velociteach has been my go-to for online courses thereafter.

Testimonial Headshot image of Claire Struthers
Velociteach is doing a great job of helping me earn my PDUs through the courses offered to me. I am most enthusiastic about project management and the Agile methodology that is garnering a lot of attention. Kudos to Velociteach and Neal Whitten to take this on and provide more information to PMI PMP's such as myself. It helps me to take the course on my own pace and when it serves me best to get on the computer to learn it.
