Some recent reviews of our course from trainees
“This course gave me a clear and concise explanation of the stages and required documentation for project management, without overcomplicating things. I finally understand the process I need to go through, so I can start to take on the added detail other courses were feeding to me. Thank You.”
“This course exceeded my expectations. I’m PMP certified and still found things to learn from this. I took this course to learn someone else’s perspective on managing projects….The course is very well organized and I think it would be perfect for a beginner because it gets to the point with exactly what a PM would need to know to get started.”
This introductory course gives you what you need to run a straightforward project. The methods shown are real-world and practical, rather than aimed at passing a PM exam such as PMP or Prince2.
I’ve been running projects for over 20 years, managing around 200 in total. In that time I’ve learnt what works well but also made a few mistakes along the way. In this course I’ll be providing the information I wish I’d had when I started my career!
You’ll learn the fundamentals and key terminology of project management, as well as what makes a good Project Manager (PM). We explain the methods step-by-step, and how to put these into practice, using clear and concise language.
You’ll get content that has been produced by an experienced practicing PM, which has been reviewed by other project management experts to ensure the content is most relevant and high quality.
