Course Overview Hi everyone! My name is Casey Ayers, and welcome to my course, Project Resource Management. This course is the 9th entry in our newly updated series helping you prepare for the latest version of the PMP exam based on the 6th edition of the Project Management Body of Knowledge. By completing this course and others in our PMP prep series, you'll not only be better prepared to ace the certificate exam, but critically, will also completely fulfil the mandatory training requirement that must be met before taking the exam. The PMP, or Project Management Professional, certificate is consistently listed as one of the top five most valuable certificates for IT professionals and is also broadly applicable to a wide range of industries. Given how much new value can be created from successful projects, businesses in all sectors and of all sizes need capable project managers today. A PMP builds the skills needed to succeed and opens new doors for those with the certification. Some of the major topics we'll cover in this course include estimating the resources you'll need for project activities, how to acquire, develop, and manage members of your team, and how to effectively monitor and control your team's resource needs and usage. By the end of this course, you'll be better equipped to build and manage project teams and to also manage the physical, infrastructural, and facility resources your team will need to accomplish project goals. This course and others in this series can not only help you learn more about project management and prepare for the PMP exam but also serve as a great refresher for established project managers and as an opportunity to earn continuing education credit. I hope you'll join me on this journey to prepare for the PMP exam and learn about project resource management here at Pluralsight.
