Certificate in Project Management


The University of Wisconsin-Stout Project Management Certificate Program is self guided in order to give participants the flexibility to complete the learning activities according to their schedules. There are no classroom sessions.

This innovative and collaborative education opportunity provides participants with a targeted and unique professional development experience that caters specifically to each individual's needs and their unique learning styles. For example:

  • The program is based on a skills–based assessment/evaluation from the participant, the participant's team members, project sponsors and direct management.
  • Following the assessment, the participant receives specific learning activities they are motivated to use, excited about and that will fill the skills gaps identified at the assessment stage

PMP Prep and Real-world Application

You can customize your project management training in various ways to make it as relevant to your goals as possible. Two popular tracks for past graduates have been either:

  1. Project Management Professional (PMP) certification prep track

  2. Select a project from within their organization to manage as part of their training

  • The real-world projects can be used to illustrate, apply, and practice project management principles in practical situations.
  • Using this real-world approach will enhance your learning and is a key component to what makes this project management certification training so valuable.

Riverfront Inc

The program was 100% customized and helped me improve the project management skills important to me and the work I'm doing every day. The one-on-one coaching sessions with the instructor were excellent. She showed me how to specifically apply what I learned to situations at Riverfront which made this program very valuable.
