Overview

As more and more business critical initiatives are being planned and executed as projects, it is essential that organisations are fully equipped with the skills, tools, working practices, processes and mindsets such that projects can be clearly defined, realistically planned and effectively managed. This entry-level course provides a comprehensive overview of project management that focuses on key success factors, decisions and consequences. Relevant for any project in any area of business, the course covers the pragmatic skills and techniques necessary for effective project delivery.

At the end of the course delegates may sit an examination to attain the Association for Project Management (APM) Introductory Certificate in Project Management (based on the APM Body of Knowledge, 5th Edition). (These delegates should also book on course: 'APM Introductory Certificate in Project Management Examination'). This course, together with a recommended follow up programme, will also prepare delegates for the CompTIA Project examination. It is a mix of theory and practical sessions using a case study throughout the course to illustrate and practice the concepts and techniques.

Prerequisites

  • No previous project management knowledge is assumed. Anyone who needs to manage projects as part of their job will benefit from attending.
  • The course is not suitable for those already conversant with standard planning and management techniques.
  • Those who are new to project management and wish to develop the basic skills, or those who need a basic understanding of the project lifecycle and key techniques would benefit from attending this course.
  • It is ideal for those wishing to attain the APM Introductory Certificate in Project Management. (These delegates should also book on course: 'APM Introductory Certificate in Project Management Examination' ). Note that APM examination application forms must be received by the APM at least two weeks before the examination date.
Pre-course reading Delegates will be provided with pre-course reading prior to attending the course. The success on the course will be enhanced by close attention to the pre-reading materials. It is recommended that candidates spend 10 hours working through the pre-reading. If you have not received your pre-reading material within one week of the start of your course, please contact your Account Manager Please note: You must bring signed photo ID with you on exam days (passport, driving licence, student card) as you will be asked to produce it by the invigilator prior to the exam.
