Join Our Happy Students

For the price, I got an enormous amount of value out of the DPM course. The lessons were relevant to my daily work as a PM—the takeaways and templates enabled me to add value to my projects, right from the first week of class.

Camilla HalvorsenProject Manager at McCann

Before taking this course, I was extremely overwhelmed thinking about how I was going to learn everything necessary to be successful in my new role without having any previous experience in Project Management. After completing this course, I have a valuable set of new resources and skills, and I am 100% confident in my future as a Project Manager!

Timothy MarmonAnalytics Project Manager, Spring Venture Group

I found the DPM course invigorating, with wealth of information that got me thinking about how our studio manages its projects and how to improve. By the end of the course I had the tools and skills necessary to manage my projects and their budgets proactively rather than reactively.

John GatewoodProject Manager at XYZ Graphics

I really enjoyed the Mastering Digital Project Management course; it was challenging but achievable with my other work commitments and with the 360 approach of videos, panel discussions, assignments and peer reviews, I really felt I was learning something new at every step.

Emmy ClarkDigital Project Manager at Cossette

The tutorials are jam packed with information, the panel discussions back up the theory with experiences from people who work in the industry and discussion on the slack channel was really valuable. Not only did I learn a huge amount from the course but it’s also given me the confidence I need to work as a DPM. I’d recommend this course to anyone wanting to work in the industry.

Charlotte EverardProject Manager at Freestyle Interactive

The DPM course has given me access to in-depth, proven methods and practices that actually work for digital agencies. I highly recommend this course to DPMs of all experience levels!

FAQs

01. How Is The Course Structured?

The course is divided into 7 weekly themes:

  1. Project management essentials and tools
  2. Project initiation
  3. Project timelines
  4. Project budgets
  5. Statement of Work
  6. Managing projects
  7. Project leadership

You’ll get access to the course content, theme by theme, over 7 weeks (with access to the video lessons for a year). You’ll receive access to the new content at the beginning of each week, so everyone’s on the same page as we go through the course.

Here’s a sample course schedule:

Monday: Release of the week’s video lesson, pre-recorded panel discussion, and assignment in Eduflow.

Sunday: Deadline for the assignment submission.

Monday: Peer’s assignment evaluation opens.

Wednesday: Deadline for peer’s assignment evaluation submission.

NB: Assignments and panel discussions are part of the Standard an Extended courses only.

02. How Much Time Do I Need To Set Aside Each Week?

This is an intensive course designed to deliver maximum value in 7 weeks. You’ll get out of it what you put in—we’ve designed the course to scale to the time you’ve got available.

Have an hour per week? Take the Basic course. Video lessons are ~1hr each. It’s self-paced, with no assignments and no certification.

Have 1-2 hours per week? Take the Standard or Extended course, but opt out of doing the assignments. Simply watch the video lessons, join in the Slack discussion and dip into panel discussions for a total commitment of 1-2 hours per week. This option lets you watch videos and panel discussions whenever you like each week, with no assignments and no certification. For 1:1 coaching, apply for the Extended course.

Have 4-5 hours per week? Take the Standard or Extended course, and opt into doing the assignments. Watch the video lessons and panel discussions earlier in the week so you have time to do assignments and benefit from the group discussion on Slack. You’ll also evaluate others’ assignments, and  have the chance to join the weekly office hour, for a total commitment of 4-5 hours a week. This option includes assignments and certification. Opt into 1:1 coaching through the Extended course.

If you spend more time, you’re going to get more out of it.

Here’s a sample breakdown:
  • 1hr – video lessons (released every Monday, for 7 weeks)
  • 10+ mins – discussions on Slack (throughout the week)
  • 1-2 hrs – panel discussions (released every Monday, for 7 weeks)
  • 1-2 hrs  – assignments (released every Monday, due every Sunday)
  • 10-20 mins – evaluating assignments

Remember, all participants get access to the course for a full year. While it’s released over 7 weeks, you can revisit any of the content on your own time.

03. How Do I Get The Course Certificate?

DPM School certification gives you the chance to share your achievement in completing the Mastering Digital Project Management course with your network. Our certification is provided by Accredible, allowing you to add your certification to your LinkedIn profile.

The certification is available for those who take the Standard or Extended course, successfully completing all assignments and achieving a 60% or greater overall score. We’ll issue a certificate upon successful completion of all the course assignments. You’re able to resubmit assignments if required.

04. Can I Claim PDU's?

For those interested in using this course for PDU’s, please note we’ve not yet completed our registration as a PMI R.E.P. so while you can claim 15 category-4 PDU’s for taking the course yourself, at this stage, you won’t be able to use the course to claim category-3 PDU’s.

05. What If I Change My Mind?

We understand there are reasons why you might need to withdraw from the course. Remember, you get access to the course for 1 year after the course starts. However, if you’re trying to follow the 7-week structure of the course you can join another course at a later date within a year of applying.

We’re confident you’re going to love the course. But if you don’t, just tell us and we’ll issue a full refund—we offer a 100% money-back guarantee.
