Overview

Practical Project Management is designed to establish a detailed understanding of Project Management terms, concepts and methodologies. The hands-on approach of this course ensures trainees “learn by doing” and gain a step-by-step, real-time experience of using the tools and implementing the methodologies and support structures. In simulating real-life environments, trainees gather the detailed knowledge required to apply the training on return to their work environment. Practical Project Management is designed for organizations or entrepreneurs that are interested in adopting or introducing a more formal Project Management approach to delivering their projects. We introduce project management terms, concepts and methodologies and show how these can be easily used to augment existing practices and make projects more predictable and consistent. Course follow-up includes provision of soft copies of a number of PMBoK-compliant Project management Tools and Templates – ready for immediate use in the workplace. This course is approved by the PMI®, and students who successfully complete this course are awarded 16 PM Contact Hours or Professional Development Units which is documented via a PMI® REP® certificate from Aspira.
