Summer Camp: Applied Project Management

Summer Camp: Applied Project Management


This summer, the Michigan Manufacturing Technology Center (The Center) is offering its first ever Summer Camp in scenic Traverse City. Over the course of one week, participants will have the opportunity to complete our accelerated five-day Applied Project Management program while experiencing the beauty of northern Michigan in the summer.  


Achieve the educational requirement that allows you to sit for the Project Management Professional (PMP) exam. In this fast-paced course, our experienced coaches will lead you through project-based learning as you apply the essential elements from the Project Management Body of Knowledge and network with professional peers. Achieving a Project Management certification increases your value as you lead your organization in a disciplined approach to project management. By applying the tools for planning, executing, and monitoring project initiatives, you can greatly reduce schedule and deployment delays, control cost overruns, and improve customer satisfaction to the benefit of your organization.


Do you remember back when summer camp activities were your teacher, learning seemed effortless, and new acquaintances became lifelong friends? Yeah, let’s do that! Following daily classes, the late afternoon sunshine and 10pm northern Michigan sunsets are yours to enjoy. Explore nature trails, take a dip in the refreshing water of Lake Michigan, dine at eclectic and outstanding restaurants, and tour northern Michigan's brewpubs and wineries. You can go your own way or get to know your peers in optional hosted networking events.
