Participants work their own real projects and project management exercises in this two day session.

Project Management Training Courses Overview

Our Project Management Training Courses cover project management in depth. This is ideal for those people who have regular projects to deliver in their role and need thorough project management training. As you can see from the contents below we cover a wide variety of subjects, but if there is specific content you would like in the course, please talk to us and we can adapt the training to suit your needs at no extra cost.

This is a comprehensive course and in the two days we have time to explore the issues and ideas in depth. Participants discuss their projects in detail. In each step of the programme the participants review their projects in discussion with the trainer and other participants. Participants get a good understanding of project management principles. They learn how to apply the ideas to their work. In two days they gain more in depth ideas on how to overcome the challenges of project management.


The price of your project management training depends on how many people you need to train, the length of the training you require, the level of complexity you require, your location and other factors.  So please contact us for the price of your project management training.
