Project Management

Available at: Cornwall


Organizations of all sizes depend upon the successful completion of projects to survive and remain competitive. Successful Project management controls every aspect of the project from initial concept through design, actual task completion and implementation. Resource allocation, time and cost control are essential elements to be managed to prevent overruns.

This one-year Ontario College Graduate Certificate Program prepares graduates for this rewarding managerial career in the field of Project Management. Project Management is a highly sought discipline that involves the application of knowledge, skills and techniques to execute projects effectively and efficiently. Project managers are in high demand across all industries.

Students will develop a critical understanding of the ten knowledge areas according to "A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge" (PMBOK® Guide). Students will acquire the creative, practical and advanced expertise that contribute to the effective management of the critical elements required to ensure overall project success.

As part of the tuition, all students will be enrolled in the Project Management Institute, (PMI) as student members to the Ottawa Valley Chapter.



Career opportunities in the fields of computer and information systems, construction and design, property administration, finance and auditing, and health and research, among others, offer graduates a wide range of opportunities in project management roles.

    The BPSYC program really is the best of both worlds; it balances the theory of a degree while putting that knowledge into practice. A theoretical foundation is taught from day one, as is research and an understanding of the literature. Alongside these aspects, students learn early on how to comprehensively assess, and create interventions using a client-centered approach. They then apply these skills to real life settings and workplaces, where it is a necessity to be flexible and respectful in multidisciplinary environments. As a graduate of the program, my training and placement experience gave me an edge when applying for graduate school. When I entered my graduate education in Counselling Psychology, I already had a comfort level with reviewing research, determining best practices and assessing case models for clients. I also had the knowledge of many different intervention strategies, as well as when they are appropriate for use and how to use them. I attribute my education at St. Lawrence College to preparing me for this experience and obtaining an SSHRC scholarship to conduct research in the Coping Experiences of 911 Communication Workers. I would not have gotten the training or the experience working closely with my professors and others in the field, had I attended a traditional university setting.
