This course will focus on one of the ten knowledge areas of project management, Risk Management.

Project Risk Management focuses on dealing with the inevitable negative events.  These can occur on any project.  Participants will learn determining methods to decrease the probability of those events or decrease the impact they will have on the project, or both. Participants will also learn about dealing with the potential opportunities determining methods to either increase the probability of those events or increase the impact they will have on the project, or both.
