Installing Updates to the Software Located in Your Brain

GREENBELT, MD--(Marketwire - July 14, 2008) - If you work within a motivated organization, you're aware of all the bells and whistles associated with efficiencies and processes used to accomplish your goals as quickly as possible with a quality end result. You probably have a regular maintenance schedule for your copiers and printers, a high-speed internet connection, and a bunch of software that updates itself every time a newer version is released.

"Do your project managers get the same regular maintenance and updates? Have they been refreshing their skill sets since they left school? Are they using all the most current and efficient techniques to maximize their day?" asks Ryan Corey of The Academy of Computer Education (ACE). --

ACE, a learning institution well known for its IT courses, announced this week that they will be offering an intense single week course in Project Management (, a program they have perfected over the past four years.

As more companies seek to control their bottom lines and improve productivity, project management has moved to the forefront. Keeping current with the latest methods and tools on the market is an essential component of maximizing productivity, and the Project Management Professional (PMP) Certification Course offered by ACE does just that. With a focus on preparing the student for achieving the PMP certification conducted by Project Management Institute (PMI), the course will cover topics recognized as compliant by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001 criterion for Project Management Certification.

With the skills learned at ACE, graduates will have the ability to manage any size team, find sponsors, build project plans that get results. The following blog -- -- illustrates this concept. The course is worth 35 credit hours and is designed to provide attendees with all of the skills they need to handle project management tasks. Testing for the highly specialized certification must be scheduled directly with PMI following the applicant's approval with the institute. Designed for IT managers and other managers, course requirements include a basic knowledge of project management as well as familiarity with Microsoft's Project software.

The Project Management Course will be offered at the ACE campus, from September 22nd through September 26th.
