It’s a concept easily attainable on paper, but real world execution often results in the opposite–late and over budget. Denis Peterson, Ph.D., president of Petersen Training, LLC, has had to step in and course correct a lot of projects during his career and decided he could provide training that resulted in maximum efficiency. This led to a partnership with UNLV Continuing Education to offer the Advanced Project Management Certificate program in southern Nevada.



    Kerri Carder-McCoy wanted something different. She had a degree in hospitality and built that into a successful career in the San Francisco Bay area for close to twenty years.
