Betamore Partners with UMBC Training Centers To Provide Greater Educational Opportunities in Baltimore City

Certificate in Project Management to Begin in May

BALTIMORE (March 24, 2015) — Betamore, Baltimore’s campus for technology and entrepreneurship, is partnering with UMBC Training Centers, the mid-Atlantic’s premier provider of technical, engineering and professional skills training, this spring to offer a Certificate in Project Management course to the Betamore community. The partnership will bring curriculum from UMBC Training Centers, which is headquartered in Columbia, Md., to Baltimore City. Through collaborations such as this, Betamore and UMBC Training Centers aim to extend educational opportunities in Baltimore for city-goers. The partnership will launch in May, with Betamore’s Federal Hill campus serving as an additional location for UMBC Training Centers’ Certificate in Project Management course, which has been delivered successfully in Columbia for several years.

“We’re excited to expand our offerings through UMBC Training Centers.” Jennifer Meyer, CEO of Betamore commented “We feel that there is tremendous opportunity for quality educational offerings through our university and collegiate partners.”

The program will aim to provide aspiring, or current project managers with the skills and knowledge required to successfully manage projects within government, business and non-profit environments. The program combines a comprehensive review of major project management processes and knowledge areas with hands-on learning activities to equip participants with practical skills which can be applied immediately on the job. Following completion of the course, successful candidates at the Betamore campus will be awarded a Certificate in Project Management from UMBC Training Centers.

“Creating this remote campus within Betamore allows us to reach an entirely new demographic of students and career-changers” stated Kent Malwitz, President of UMBC Training Centers. “Our hope is that through this initial partnership, we will have the opportunity to continue to collaborate with Betamore and offer additional classes on campus in the future.”

The program will take place between May 19, 2015 and July 19, 2015 at Betamore.  Class will meet from 6:00 p.m.-9:30 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. More information about the course and certification is available at http://betamore1.wpengine.com/project-management.
