Our Aerospace Project Management Certificate Program emphasizes hands-on learning, focusing on building practical skills using industry-relevant tools. Supported by case examples, participants gain real-world insights that they can apply directly to their roles.
Our program is developed and taught by seasoned professionals with extensive experience in aerospace projects. Their expertise ensures the curriculum is relevant and immediately applicable to your organizational needs.
Customizable Learning Experience
Recognizing that each company has unique needs, we offer the flexibility to tailor the core curriculum to meet your specific requirements. We work collaboratively with you to ensure the program content aligns with your strategic goals.
Sequential Learning Journey
Our courses are structured sequentially, enabling learners to progressively build skills in aerospace project management, from proposal development to project completion. This step-by-step approach ensures a comprehensive understanding of the entire project lifecycle.
Flexible Scheduling and Delivery
We understand the demands of today's organizations. That's why our program, typically scheduled as five two-day courses, can be delivered at your company location and scheduled to align with your operational needs. Programs can be stand-alone focused on specific cohorts or designed to be available for your aerospace enterprise for life-long learning.
Project Organization and Leadership
This course examines the principles of effective program leadership and motivation and presents practical methods for decision-making, conflict management, communications, and team development.
Project Costing and Proposal Development
Learn how to evaluate project lifecycle cost, schedule, risk and performance; and how and when to respond to proposal opportunities. Perform the different estimating techniques appropriate for specific phases of the project life cycle.
Risk and Opportunity Management
A well-structured and cost-effective risk management program is necessary for a successful project. This course provides proven methods and tools for recognizing, assessing, and responding to project risks. Real-life examples are presented from recent aerospace projects.
Detailed Project Planning
This course provides the foundation for successful project planning, including scoping, estimating, budgeting, and scheduling. The course identifies common planning mistakes and pitfalls and discusses practical workarounds.
Project Monitoring and Control
This course discusses basic principles for tracking technical efforts against cost, schedule, and performance targets. Emphasis is on reporting progress, identifying performance problems before they become severe, and determining effective recovery approaches.
Managing Multiple Projects
Participants will learn to use special methodologies and management techniques to successfully complete multiple projects.
Managing the Software Component of Projects
Participants will learn to manage the software aspects of projects better. They will learn practical tools and techniques for managing software development within a broader project context.
Project Earned Value Management
Participants will learn the "early warning" signals to predict additional funding needed to complete the job based on cost and schedule performance against the project plan.
This course is designed for aerospace & defense professionals from any department or division looking to eliminate waste, reduce costs, and increase product and process successes—including engineering, operations, manufacturing, finance and accounting, purchasing, government acquisitions, research and development, and general management.
