About This Award

BECOME THE MASTER OF PROJECT PLANNING

Successful projects don’t happen by coincidence. A lot of time, effort, planning and management is required to ensure the end result is positive.

This training will help you learn and understand the lifecycle of a project. You’ll look at popular PRINCE2® project management techniques, what it takes to work effectively as a Project Manager and how to utilise the Microsoft Project program that can assist with automating and managing your projects as efficiently as possible.

This training is extremely accessible as the core courses involved are all available to study online so you can fit your training in and around your existing commitments.

Our teams in our training locations are all on hand to help throughout and on successful completion of the training you’ll receive a Pitman Training certificate to verify your knowledge. You’ll then also be in a great position to take an accredited PRINCE2® Foundation examination*.

To find out more about our range of Project Management training get in touch and we’ll run through the various options to find the right training for you.

*PRINCE2® accredited examinations need to be organised separately. Our Course Advisors can provide further detail on this.
