Advanced Certificate in Project Management


Advanced Certificate in Project Management: ACPMTM

Specifically developed with a range of cross industry exercises

Different individual industries have many unique skills and disciplines throughout, however the fact remains that the discipline of Project Management must not only transcend these unique skills but also draw on them to deliver a successful final result. Whilst there are many basic methodology based courses around there is not enough ‘general project management’ training that covers the key management aspects of project management above and beyond the basic processes.

This ACPMTM course was developed, as a result of many industry discussions, to raise awareness amongst cross industry project professionals about the ‘bigger picture’ of Project Management, where perhaps they have not had any prior experience themselves, but need to know more.

ACPMTM therefore is a toolset and methodology independent framework developed to increase delegates’ personal abilities and project management skills. It and will provide delegates with the high impact skills and techniques to immediately allow you to manage efficiently and effectively in any environment. ACPMTM is a highly interactive learning experience, taught by seasoned Project Management professionals with cross industry experience, and the course materials are supported by topical and very challenging industry based exercises which are carried out in teams, followed by a 2 hour open book examination.

On completion of this five day training course and the corresponding examination, deleagtes will receive the Advanced Certificate in Project Management which has been independently and accredited by Qualifi, an official UK Government recognised awarding body.
