New project management seminar offered by Goodman School of Business

Many careers require project management skills.

A role might involve handling a small component of a project, such as managing the budget, assigning tasks or keeping track of a timeline. Or it might mean leading a large project from idea to completion.

Research from the Project Management Institute indicates demand over the next 10 years for project managers is growing faster than demand for workers in other occupations.

A new two-day seminar offered by the Goodman School of Business at Brock University will prepare participants to take on a variety of roles and tasks within the growing field of project management.

Training will take place Thursday, Feb. 25 and Friday, Feb. 26 from 1 to 4 p.m. each day. Topics will include project needs identification and planning; requesting, writing and reviewing proposals; scheduling, critical paths, network diagrams and Gantt chats; and managing resources and costs.

The seminar is facilitated by Goodman Group, the business school’s community-focused learning and development services provider, and will be led by Amy Tomaino, Goodman’s Senior Administrative Officer. Tomaino is a certified Project Management Professional who has 20 years of experience as an administrative leader within the private, public and education sectors. She has led projects in areas of strategic planning, policy development, procurement and recreation-related construction.

The cost of the project management seminar is $895 plus HST. Brock University alumni and groups are eligible for a discounted rate by emailing
