About the Course

There is a constant demand for qualified project managers who have the ability to work within tight constraints in order to deliver successful projects. This requires the ability to effectively manage resources to achieve short-term goals and a clear understanding of the different elements that go into a successful project from start to finish. Many project management training courses reflect this, but in an impenetrable language that can be difficult for less experienced project managers to understand.

The syllabus for this course covers several key knowledge areas, providing professionals with comprehensive knowledge of the key concepts, tools and techniques of project management, without any unnecessary jargon. The course fully prepares professionals to sit and pass the PMQ examination.
