In-house PMO Practitioner Course | Enquire for costs If you have a group within your organisation looking to do this course, then an in-house course would be more cost-effective and  beneficial for you. The benefit of in-house is that our Trainer will spend time with you beforehand to understand your PMO environment, your challenges and successes so the course and exercises are somewhat tailored to the current maturity and goals of your organisation.

The Trainer provided us with an extremely informative two days in support of our continuing interest in building our PMO capability. It was greatly appreciated that they took the time in advance of our course to seek information on how best to tailor the content to our specific context in order for us to gain the most value. Highly engaging, enjoyable and thought-provoking!The Open University
