ZweigWhite Offers A/E/P Project Management Courses Online, On Demand

Feb 23, 2011

Press Release: February 22, 2011 FAYETTEVILLE, AR (February 23, 2011) – ZweigWhite’s new eLearning courses offer easy, convenient project management (PM) training ideally suited for today’s time-pressed, on-the-go professionals in the architecture, engineering, planning and environmental consulting industry – and the courses contain key information not provided at any PM school. “It’s a rare project manager who comes equipped with full design knowledge and the necessary leadership and communication skills to manage projects,” says Mark Zweig, founder and CEO of ZweigWhite. “Our focus on project management is because we know there is more need for PM training in the A/E/P industry than any other type of management training.” ZweigWhite’s online learning goes beyond the usual scope, schedule and budget basics of project management by offering select insider tips and tricks from industry experts, allowing PMs to “sit in” virtually on interviews with industry and PM leaders who know all the shortcuts and tactics to help them succeed. Providing these courses in an online environment allows for intermittent learning, which enables a learner to start and stop whenever they want, thus learning on demand. The courses are not tied to time or distance constraints and also offer a cost savings to companies for travel expenses to seminars while alleviating concerns about time away from the office. The ZweigWhite eLearning courses cater to PM practitioners who are pursuing more and more of their learning and up-to-the-moment knowledge using laptops, smart phones, tablet computers and other portable devices. Says Ed Friedrichs, Chairman of ZweigWhite: “Delivered in bite-sized chunks, these eLearning courses are suitable for the few minutes a person may have between meetings, during a cab ride, or wherever that moment occurs, yet collectively they form the solid platform for learning that professionals need to stay current.” Rolling out on a monthly basis, ZweigWhite’s eLearning courses feature a Web-based courseware model delivered in a Flash movie-based format. It is an open entry, open exit self-paced program with suggested time frames for completion. Because these modules are designed as self-paced learning, there are built-in methods of self-assessment in addition to a final knowledge test. An “additional resources” page is included with all eLearning courses that points clients to other ZweigWhite publications, webinars, videos and other available materials on that particular topical area. ZweigWhite’s first eLearning course, “Managing Project Communications,” goes live February 23, 2011.
