Take your military career from Tactical to Practical with a career booster – Project Management training!

Your military experience provides the perfect set of experiences and skills to prepare you for a career in project management, and the courses offered by Projects by Design can help you get there.

Projects by Design, a premier training company specializing in project management training, was founded by Dan Barringer, who has been teaching both military and private courses for over 40 years. Dan is retired from the US Army, served as a member of the US Army Parachute Team, and was a Green Beret. He was successful in transitioning from tactical to practical – you can too!

These course offerings provide the prerequisites, training, and coaching you need to prepare for project management certification exams from the Project Management Institute (PMI®), the worldwide standard in project management.

NOTE: All PMP® exam costs can be covered by the GI Bill! Active Duty may qualify for an Additional Skill Identifier (ASI)!

Projects by Design is a proud Veteran Owned Small Business and an approved Federal Government contractor (CAGE Code: 8S8L5)


I recently passed the PMP exam and I want to thank Dan & Projects By Design for bringing me up to speed for a career transition into Project Management after serving on Active Duty. Dan is an excellent teacher with a passion for helping veterans successfully transition into the civilian workforce.
