Do I have to enroll in all the classes or can I just take one or two?

You can enroll in whichever classes are of interest to you. However, to receive the Project Management Certificate you would have to complete the 6 core classes (Introduction to Project Management, Communications Tools & Techniques, Scheduling Tools & Techniques, Cost Tools & Techniques, Risk Tools & Techniques, and Scope Tools & Techniques.) These 6 core classes may be taken on an "a la carte" basis (in any order as there are no prerequisites.) In addition, you must complete 24 contact hours of elective courses. Elective courses may be taken before, during, or after the 6 core classes. You must complete all program requirements within 18 months of your first course.
