Project Management Training Topics & Courses

“What should we include on the training?” is the start point for many clients when they contact us. We will guide you. We believe that training should be designed to meet the exact needs of your staff, rather than trying to find a generic course with the closest fit.  Our training courses are customised to match your exact project and programme training needs assessment, project management processes and project environment.

Our courses become your courses. We create practical content that supports your approach to project management. For some clients this means training out their well-defined project management methodology, for others this may mean we provide support in defining a simple, fit for purpose consistent approach to selecting, managing and closing projects.  Our fixed price Project Methodology PRIME service does exactly that.

Our library of over 10 days of project management training material enable you to cherry pick the exact content you want. Our courses focus on providing practical benefit to attendees enabling them to immediately apply what they have learnt directly on their projects the next day. Course exercises are based on attendees own experiences, not generic scenarios.

As an Accredited APM Training Provider we can incorporate the APM Foundation qualification as part of the training enabling participants to gain a formally recognised professional qualification.

Importantly we also provide joint copyright ownership, enabling you to copy & distribute material as you need throughout your organisation.  This also means we are very happy to transition training to your own internal training team if you wish.

Example Training Courses

Here are some examples of types of courses we frequently run for our corporate and public sector clients.  Most clients run a 2 day course for those running projects and a ½ day course for those taking on the role of Project Sponsor.  Some clients also like to incorporate Microsoft Project training but all our courses are customised and branded to your organisation.
