About the Course

This intensive five-day course will give an indepth and comprehensive coverage of the key skills and knowledge required for effective project management as detailed in PMI’s “Body of Knowledge”. Real world examples will be used to illustrate problems that may be faced in the working environment and participants will be encouraged to draw upon their own experiences to further add to the learning experience. The topics, disciplines, and enabling skills will be progressively built upon and linked to the development of case studies worked on in a team environment to further participants’ personal skills.

All terms and techniques covered in the course are compatible with PMI’s “Body of Knowledge”. This course satisfies the Project Management Professional (PMP)® certification 35 hour training requirement.
