Available Through Courses

Columbus, Ohio (December 18, 2007) –, the leader in on-line Lean Six Sigma training resources, introduces a new addition to its online course offerings. Fundamentals of Project Management provides 16 hours of focused interactive instruction on each step – taking a project from initiation to close – as well as best practices of a successful project manager. Targeted for people looking to hone their project management skills, the content is generic enough to be applicable for would-be Project Managers in a variety of industries, including service, IT, manufacturing and healthcare. Fundamentals of Project Management is now available from the website; tuition is $450. Current customers, like Marc Turco, Six Sigma Deployment Leader at Schneider Electric North America, appreciate the synergy created by’s vigorous Lean Six Sigma content when paired with the Fundamentals of Project Management course. “It does a great job of teaching the essentials of project management to strengthen six sigma project execution. The new Project Management content complements the lean six sigma course material very well. Lean Six Sigma projects fail more often due to poor project management practices rather than because of improper application of statistical tools. We are launching this course to address that need – and PDU’s are an added bonus,” says Chief Marketing Officer Tim Kelley.

To offer an even greater value proposition, announces that current and future students can earn PDUs for completed MoreSteam coursework. As a Global Registered Education Provider, approved by the Project Management Institute, all students who successfully complete a MoreSteam course are eligible to receive Professional Development Units (PDUs). PDUs are awarded based on the number of course contact hours, e.g., the MoreSteam 140-hour LSSBB course offers 140 PDUs. This allows customers the added value of working towards PMI certification- while learning Lean Six Sigma skills. Additionally, current PMI credential holders can step outside the project management arena and learn the powerful tools of Lean Six Sigma while earning PDUs toward recertification.

The Project Management Institute is the leading membership association for the project management profession. PMI’s primary activities include advocacy for the project management profession, setting professional standards, conducting research and providing access to information and resources relating to the project management profession. PMI also promotes career and professional development and offers certification, networking and community involvement opportunities.
