This is a great course if you really want to learn project management by doing. The case study that runs throughout the course translates learning into practical application which reinforces the learning. It is also a great introduction to higher level management/business courses.”
- Victoria Smith, MCPM 2015, Special Projects and Sustainability Manager, Strathcona Regional District
This course gave me the “why” to all the various leadership, planning, monitoring, and even operations plans that I deal with on a constant basis. MCPM weaves all these threads into a coherent fabric that leadership can use to propel their organizations to the next level.”
- Jason Cheney, MCPM 2015, Commanding Officer, DND

What you will learn:
In project simulation, all participants apply their learning to propose, plan, execute and deliver a full-scale realistic project in teams
Many graduates tell us that this is the best part of the whole program. It serves to pull it all together – all of the knowledge, tools, techniques and relationships coming together to complete the program and the student’s tool kit.
Students have been working on the project simulation throughout the program and now they will execute the project – a unique, exciting and somewhat stressful experience. Just like real life.
While the MCPM program is a part-time, non-credit program and is not eligible for assistance through Student Aid BC student loans, there are a number of grants awards and discounts available to our participants.
We are pleased to announce the continuation of the PMI-VI® Vancouver Island Education Award.
