Organizations are constantly developing new products, programs, and services to better serve their clients. They may need to streamline business processes, increase quality and customer satisfaction, or deal with increased competition. Good project management is often the solution for successful completion of these business and organizational requirements.

Many project management workshops are geared toward the relatively small number of people who want to become certified as a professional project manager. This workshop is designed for people who want to understand the value of project management and need to manage or participate in projects as part of their job.

Designed and delivered by a certified project manager, this course provides hands-on experience on using best-practice tools and techniques to plan and manage a project successfully and to the client’s satisfaction.

Project Management Professional (PMP) Certification: The 11 hours of training time in this workshop can be applied toward your 35 hours of required project management education for PMP certification.

This is a two-day workshop in Ottawa.

Space is still available for all course dates listed, unless otherwise noted.
