Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to have project management experience?
Students are required to have a baseline of professional experience within the workforce, but are not required to have formal project management experience.
Is project management only for I.T. professionals and construction managers?
The Project Management Certificate course has been designed for professionals at all levels and in many different industries. As the previous West Haven lead instructor Jim Ondak, PMP® stated to every class, "Any career may be enhanced by successfully applying the principles of project management."
Do I need to pay for the entire program up-front?
Students can pay for one module at a time. To save a seat in the class, students can register for the first module. All subsequent modules will be due at the first date of each module.
Will the Project Management Certificate prepare me for the PMP® exam?
Our Project Management Certificate program has not been designed exclusively to teach for the PMP® or CAPM® exams that the Project Management Institute delivers. The program is intended to teach good project management skills, and help create good project managers. We do find, however, that our 90-hour program is so comprehensive that many students walk away retaining most of the knowledge they need to be able to sit for the test. Many of our students do go on to complete the PMP® or CAPM® exams, with an amazing passing rate.
I have tuition reimbursement from my organization. How do I register for the program?
Students being reimbursed directly by their organization will typically pay up front for the first module, and request documentation throughout the program so they can obtain reimbursement from their company for each module.
Students receiving full company assistance or direct tuition assistance from their organization can contact Walt Glomb directly for a paper registration form. If you have any questions, please contact Walt Glomb at email@example.com.
What is the program format?
Currently, the program is set up as classroom training, meeting one night a week for a lecture-style discussion.
What materials are required?
The newest version of the Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide (5th edition) is provided on the first night of the class, and is included in the tuition cost. This is the global standard that is published by the Project Management Institute.
All other materials, case studies, and other handouts will be provided in class.
Who are the instructors?

Mr. Judd Andres, PMP® is the lead instructor for the New London program, which begins every October. Both instructors may bring in guest speakers throughout the course.
