Project Management Courses
So what is a Project Management Course? What does a Project Management training course cover? What does Project Management education give you? Will attendance of a Project management course help me in my career in Cork and in Ireland? Who should attend a Project Management course?
These are typical of the many questions we get asked. The answer can vary! It depends on what you and your organization are trying to do and your experience and capability.
Let me explain. If you are an experienced Project Manager and want some international certification to underpin your experience; we would advocate you get Project Management Professional (PMP)® certification. There is a certain set of core material we need to cover with you based on the Project Management Institutes, A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge, (PMBOK® Guide) - Fourth Edition, Project Management Institute, Inc., 2008. This Project Management certification will help you in your current job or attain another Project Management position. So; it will help in your career progression.
If you are working on projects and have problems with Scope creep, schedule slippage, cost over-runs; then you need Project Management training to provide you with best practices, tools & techniques to address these issues. So it is not a "one-size fits all". The course needs to address a problem you are having.
Or you may be a company which has no Project Management process and you want to get some best practices and a process / framework in place.
Project Management training will usually provide industry best practices in the following project management areas: Scope, Time, Cost, Quality, Human Resource, Communications, Risk, Procurement, Integration and Ethics.
These Project Management training courses aimed at PMP® certification are usually for Project Managers, Section Managers and team leads. We find that team members can benefit greatly from attending Project Management courses. The team members are the people doing the project work; so it is important that they understand how to lock down scope, estimate activities and do proper risk analysis to name but a few areas. They are the best placed to give real value add. Some official training can bring real value and allow more efficient and effective communication with the project manager and team.
