The Project Management Leadership Academy (PMLA) is an 11-week program for state IT professionals with a focus on developing project management leadership skills. The program targets project managers with limited experience and current project support personnel. Support personnel are defined as those who have worked in project support functions (e.g. test manager, business analyst, contract manager) and aspire to lead projects for the State of California.

Participants in the Academy are selected from state agencies and departments and are nominated by their executive team. If you have a strong desire to lead projects, are coachable, and understand the critical nature of a strong project management foundation, you are urged to apply.


The program cost is $4200
