University of California Silicon Valley Awarded Prestigious Chapter Membership and Recognition from Key International Project Management Organization

CUPERTINO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--UCSC Extension in Silicon Valley, (ucsc-extension.edu) a continuing professional education division of the University of California, announces that it has been awarded the rare distinction of full chapter membership and is now a certified training partner of the American Academy of Project Management.

As the only university in Northern California and one of only three institutions in the state to have been granted this designation, the distinction further validates the Project and Program Management (PPM) Certificate program at UCSC in Silicon Valley as one of the finest in the country. "We do not offer chapter recognition very often," said Prof. Dr. George Mentz, General Counsel and Director of New Alliances for AAPM. "But after analysis, this program ranks among those of the highest level, for several reasons - including proximity to Silicon Valley, and the excellence of its instruction."

The AAPM TM is an international graduate board offering the Master Project Manager (MPM TM) and Certified International Project Manager (CIPM TM) certifications to qualified applicants who meet rigorous requirements in education, training, experience, industry knowledge and ethics. The credential recognizes those project managers who both excel professionally and continue to expand their knowledge base with advanced training.

"I'm absolutely delighted to receive this new designation," said Michael Taylor, Coordinator of the PPM program at UCSC Extension in Silicon Valley. "This confirms that what we're teaching to potential and actual project managers is not only current, but directed toward practical application, and not high theory content that they can't use."

The graduate PPM Certificate at UCSC Extension in Silicon Valley is a Bay Area exclusive offering.  The PPM Certificate is also recognized for graduate-level credit toward Master's degrees in project management from leading national universities as well as the AAPM certifications.

"Because our PPM Certificate Program has been so successful providing practical project management skills that can be immediately applied, many students are asking for a higher level of instruction," said James Desrosier, Executive Director of Business and Management Education at UCSC Extension in Silicon Valley. "To meet this demand, an Advanced Applied Project Management Certificate has been approved and it is targeted to launch this summer."
