Course Description

This course was designed as a supplemental study guide for the major content areas of Chapter 8 of A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide), Sixth Edition. In this course, you will learn how the project management team ensures that a project will be completed at the level of quality required by all stakeholders. Throughout a project, there will be many inputs to processes from customers, team members, and others in the involved organizations; in this course, you will see how the management team will use those inputs to plan for, execute, and monitor and control quality.

This course aligns with the PMBOK® Guide Sixth Edition. (The PMBOK® Guide is not included in the cost of this course and must be purchased separately.)

Taking advantage of online interactivity, the course contains a vocabulary game, flashcards, and other activities to help you master the material.
