Hi everyone, my name is Casey Ayers and welcome to my course, Managing Project Communications and Risks.
I’m the author of Pluralsight’s series of PMP and business analysis courses and now, it’s my pleasure to help you learn more about project management and prepare for the CompTIA Project+ PK0-004 exam, with this fourth course in our CompTIA Project+ series.

Earning a CompTIA Project+ certification is a great way to express your interest in project management as a profession, hone your skills, and learn about some of the tools and techniques leaders in the field utilize to find success. Best of all, the only requirement to take the exam and earn the CompTIA Project + certification is a passion to learn more about project management.

Some of the major topics that we will cover include:

  • Developing project teams
  • Managing project communications
  • Managing project risks

By the endof this course, you’ll know how to build teams for success, resolve conflicts, manage communication with team members and project stakeholders, identify and plan for risks, and deploy risk management strategies to help you leverage opportunities and combat threats.

Interest in learning more about project management is the only prerequisite for this course, though exposure to project environments can certainly help, as well.

This course – and others in the series – can not only help learn more about project management and prepare for the CompTIA Project+ exam, but also serve as a great refresher for established project managers and as an opportunity to earn continuing education credit toward certifications like the PMP.

I hope you’ll join me on this journey to learn more about managing projects and the CompTIA Project+ certification with this course, Managing Project Communications and Risks, at Pluralsight.
