Event Details

JIRA 101 Workshop

This workshop is for newbies to JIRA who want to learn how to survive (and thrive!) using JIRA every day. Students will walk through a variety of real projects in JIRA and will come away with a basic understanding of the tool. Students should bring a laptop to class.

The class is presented in a highly interactive and collaborative format with elements of lecture, classroom discussion, exercises, and simulations interwoven throughout the class.

Upon completion of the class, students will be eligible to claim 2 Project Management Institute (PMI)® Professional Development Units (PDUs) which can be applied to Project Management Professional (PMP)® and PMI-Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® certifications.

PMI, PMP, and PMI-ACP are registered marks of the Project Management Institute, Inc.
