About the course

Given all of the uncertainties associated with projects, your ability to manage the many different types of risk is critical to the project’s success. Attend Project Risk Management to recognize the different types of risk you will encounter and how to appropriately respond to that risk. You will participate in classroom simulations and interactive exercises during this course.

Upon completion of this two-day course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify what can go wrong on a project
  • Determine what risks are important and warrant mitigation
  • Prepare an effective risk statement
  • Generate strategies to deal with critical risks
  • Determine the expected value of a mitigation strategy
  • Determine the size of the contingency reserve for the project
  • Make decisions under uncertainty and risk

Improve your project management skills, as you earn your project management certificate from the California Institute of Technology Center for Technology and Management Education. Our certificate program will help you master the critical skills of project management.

The skills you develop during the program apply to large and small projects, product design and development, construction projects, IT projects, software development, and any other project with critical performance, time, and budget targets.
