Free 3rd Edition PMBOK(r) Training for Individuals

Here are some project management training slides for non-profit, individual education. They took 2 years to develop and need macros running; Please use the custom font to avoid alignment problems. The original resolution was either 1024x768 or 1280x1024. Due to all the animation, they are not usable in printout form - use the PMBOK(r) Guide for hardcopy.

You may share these slides freely, but contact me prior to any commercial use.
