[Autogenerated] Hi, everyone. My name is Casey Airs and welcome to my course Project Resource Management. This course is the ninth entry in our newly updated Siri's, helping you prepare for the latest version of the PNP exam based on the sixth edition of the Project Management Body of Knowledge. By completing this course and others in our PMP prep Siri's, you'll not only be better prepared to face the certification exam, but critically will also completely fulfill the mandatory training requirement that must be met before taking the exam. The PMP, your project management professional certification, is consistently listed as one of the top five most valuable certifications for I T 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 in 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 will cover in this course include estimating the resource is you'll need for project activities, how to acquire developing 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. Resource is your team will need to accomplish project goals. This course and others in the Siri's cannot 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, a plural site.
