Aspira’s Mission is “to take the chaos out of Project Management”. This training course provides detailed insight into Project Management best practices, covering all the areas specified by the PMI®. This course uses the latest edition (5th Edition – March 2013) PMBOK Guide® as its core reference. Professional 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. The course is designed to be practical and help people apply the knowledge to the workplace. The course uses PMBOK Guide® 5th Edition as its reference and so helps prepare people for PMI® Certification if this is a future goal. 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 24 PM Contact Hours or Professional Development Units (PDUs) which is documented via a PMI® REP® certificate from Aspira. Completion of this course also gets participants two thirds of their way to meeting their PMP® certification as well as meeting the training requirements for CAPM® Certification.

PMP is a globally recognised project management certification that identifies qualified and quality project managers. PMI’s Project Management Professional (PMP)® credential is the most important industry-recognised certification for project managers. Globally recognized and demanded, the PMP® demonstrates that you have the experience, education and competency to lead and direct projects.

There are three categories of people who benefit most from this course: 1. New or prospective project managers, who are looking for guidance on the “right” way to manage their projects. 2. Experienced project managers who had had to learn ‘on the job’ and may not be aware of the different proven tools and techniques that exist and that can make their lives easier. 3. Functional Managers, who may have to manage some projects “part-time” in addition to their real jobs. Many of the PM tools and methods can also apply to line management and deliver real value.
