Course Overview


This course uses the project lifecycle as a framework and is focused on providing learners with practical project management tools and techniques. Content covered includes identifying project goals, scoping, planning, risk management, communication and closing activities. This course is suitable for anyone who is a project team member, manages small projects or who is new to project management and is looking for a solid foundation and methodology for further skills development.


Learning Outcomes


  • Contribute to the development of project schedules and plans and contribute to the identification of project deliverables
  • Contribute as a member of a project team and be clear about their own roles and responsibilities within the project
  • Take responsibility for their own part of the project and work towards achieving agreed deadlines within a set budget and timeframe
  • Seek support from colleagues in advance where necessary
  • Bring problems and potential problems to the attention of the project leader and participate in the evaluation of outcomes.

ZOOM Virtual Classroom

Our virtual classroom consists of a facilitator teaching the class to students who are dialled in remotely to the class session. Presentation slides and other digital files can be presented during the training session using the Zoom platform and the student may either focus on these resources or the facilitator. 

To enable connection, you will require the following set-up:

- Sufficient internet connection – Zoom is successful on a 4G network. Any network better than 4G will enhance the student’s experience;
- A PC with a web-camera, microphone and the capacity to run the Zoom application to allow the facilitator to better interact with students in the same manner as a traditional classroom; and
- Sufficient sized monitor or screen

"Really rewarding day! I look forward to attending the advanced course."
