Through this course, students will learn about the top ten public safety project management success factors, view and discuss relevant audio-visual materials, and work with four critical project tools. Students will also participate in breakout and self-assessment activities.

The course is scheduled to be four (4) hours in length and was designed under the assumption that students have a minimum of 5–10 years of experience in public safety and have some accountability for public safety projects within their organization. The course material was not developed to substantively delve into the basics of project management or provide step-by-step instructions for deploying the critical factors; rather, this is a course focusing on the duties and responsibilities of a senior-level public safety professional as they relate to executive sponsorship and improving project success.
