How it works
The pedagogical training model, in B-learning format, based on a modular logic that enhances the interventions of each trainee. Over 3 presential sessions with one day duration (3 Saturdays) and 20 sessions in e-learning format, 3 hours each, the student can participate actively or at their own rhythm.
Presential sessions will be held at October 3th and 24 and November 14. The first session will aim to present and clarify all the principles to be adopted during the operation, including those related to the learning platform and address the key concepts of initiation and project planning. The second presential session will revisit the nine knowledge areas covered in E-learning sessions, clarifying all doubts. The last presential session will review the area of knowledge related to integration, reserving ample space dedicated to discussion and closing the remaining issues.
The 20 sessions in e-learning format to be held between October 6 and November 18, at Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, will approach the processes from each PMBOK® Guide knowledge area, with two exam simulations and group discussions about the best way to achieve the correct answers.
