Professional Development Units – PDUs
SmartPath LLC provides PDUs that are short burst of “Lean & Improve” sessions. Almost all of our trainees in project management inform us that they have more project work than available time in a day. They barely get time for continuing education. In today’s hectic and fast paced business world project managers are facing challenges in keeping their skills up to date and learning new skills via collaborating with the industry experts.
Therefore SmartPath LLC has developed short burst of “Lean & Improve” sessions in project management related topics to provide continuing education and revamping of skills via collaborating with the industry experts. These PDU sessions are one hour live instructor led discussions based on case studies. The sessions are scheduled at a convenient hour, usually at the end of a business day.
SmartPath LLC has also made available package deals where a PM can buy 20 PDU classes for a year’s time and they can take each session at their own convenient time frame. These packages are a group of short burst discussion topics that keep the skills up to date and provide best practices via collaborating with the industry experts.
