For anyone considering a career in project management or simply looking to improve their knowledge of the subject.
Over the course of a 2-day workshop, you will learn to appreciate the difference between a project management environment and the ‘business as usual' operating environment. You will cover areas such as project planning, project life cycles and quality management. Communication will also be looked at, alongside teamwork models and the role of the leader.

You will understand the accepted terminology and be able to make a positive contribution to the project environment you are involved with.
What does it involve?
Led by accredited trainers with plenty of experience will help prepare you for the subsequent exam which is a multiple choice, closed book exam, lasting 1 hour and requiring a 60% pass mark.
This is an intensive course and requires around 10 hours of preparatory reading. In addition, during the workshop, delegates should be prepared to set aside time in the evening for further reading and mock exam questions.
