Course Overview Hi everyone, my name is Casey Ayers, and welcome to my course, Project Risk Management. This course is the eleventh entry in our newly-updated series, helping you prepare for the latest version of the PMP exam. By completing this course and others in our PMP prep series, you'll not only be better prepared to ace the certification exam, but critically, will also fulfill the mandatory training requirement that must be met before taking the exam. The PMP, or Project Management Professional certification is consistently listed as one of the top five most valuable certifications 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 this certification. Some of the major topics we'll cover in this course include planning for risk management and identifying project risk factors, applying qualitative and quantitative analysis techniques to identified risks, developing and implementing risk responses, and ensuring our risk management efforts are effective through monitoring. By the end of this course, you'll be better prepared to manage risks and capitalize on opportunities that can make the difference between your project's success of failure. This course, and others in the series, 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 risk management, here at Pluralsight.
