Course description

Comprehensive Project Management Seminar: Core Skills

This 3-day course is designed for those with experience working in a project management (PM) environment. This “professional” level course appeals to a broad mix of industries. Participants include engineers, contractors, software developers and manufacturers engaged in technical projects; others are involved in business and financial projects. We facilitate discussions among the participants about their project management challenges and successes.

Once completed, you will return to your workplace qualified to improve your organization’s PM process. Many people who have taken our course have gone on to a high-profile position in their organization.

By the conclusion of this course, you will learn the processes from 5 knowledge areas as defined in the benchmark publication A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®) Guide published by the Project Management Institute. The course is always consistent with the current PMBOK® Guide.

Many of our participants are interested in preparing for the Project Management Professional (PMP®) or related CAPM® designation. We have been preparing candidates for those exams since 1991, longer than anyone else in Canada. Enrolment includes a free subscription to our PMP® Helpline and PMP Intelligence messages.
