Hi everyone, my name is Casey Ayers and welcome to my course, Project Procurements, Performance and Change Management.
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 fifth and final 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, and the only requirement to take the exam and earn the certification is a passion to learn more about project management.

Some of the major topics that we will cover include:

  • Managing project procurements
  • Measuring project performance
  • Managing project changes and
  • Closing out project work

By the end of this course, you’ll know how to select and manage relationships with vendors, use quality measurement tools and charting techniques to gauge project performance, ensure project change requests and handled quickly and implemented correctly, and how to wrap up project work and create a legacy that can help ensure success in the future.

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.
