Project Management Training Philosophy
Our blended learning solution to Project Management courses will support you from the application process right through to the PMP® of even the PgMP® certification exams.
We combine classroom training, a web-accessible PMP/PgMP exam simulator and email support to ensure you pass the exam. This solution reduces the study time required and the time needed away from work to study.
For organisations with many project managers on staff, we can provide in-house tailored project management training that combines project management best practice with an understanding of the in-house processes.
Organizations can develop their staff all the way to Project Management (PMP) or even Program Management Professional (PgMP) status. If this is not sufficient, Velopi has partnered with University College Cork to develop an MSc programme in Project Management. This is ideal for managers who want to work at the organizational level - by setting up Project Management Offices, for example.
Velopi offers support for project managers at all stages of their careers. See our career ladder graphic for more details.
Getting Started in Project Management
If you are new to project management and need to get up to speed on the basic concepts quickly, we offer a 1-day Managing Projects course.
If you are a bit further down the line, you might like to obtain an entry-level project management qualification. Velopi offers you a choice of two options:
- The Project Management Institute's Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)® Course
- The Irish QQI Level 6 Component Certificate in Project Management (6N4090) Course.
Developing as a Project Manager
For experienced project managers, Velopi's flagship offerings centre on obtaining the Project Management Professional accreditation. We offer two main options.
- The four day Project Management Professional (PMP) Course
- The two day PMP Exam Preparation Refresher Course.
Both include unlimited access to the exam simulator and support from a PMP certified tutor until you pass the exam.
The Refresher Course is designed to help project managers who have previously studied for the PMP exam but, for some reason, never got around to sitting the exam. This refresher will set you back on course for the PMP exam
Of course, if you are really confident that you can get the PMP alone, try some sample PMP exam questions and see just how ready you are.
