CIPM™ Certified International Project Manager

Project Management is growing exponentially. It's now used in virtually all industries, such as: government, healthcare, telecom, IT, education and banking. Effective project management and people management is how these organisations streamline to improve productivity. As businesses are restructured, project managers take over many responsibilities. Expertise in project management is a source of security, prosperity and power to many companies. This is a 'flagship' course and is internationally popular.

RPM™ Registered Project Manager

This course is a foundation course designed to successfully launch aspiring project managers from all industries and to ensure that all the Project Management fundamentals are addressed and understood. For more experienced managers, this course will fine tune their skills and hone their knowledge using real life case study scenarios, blended with interactive learning techniques and extensive study materials. All attendees will be able to demonstrate a sound knowledge of Project Management principles, and to be able to function over a range of projects.

We designed this as a comparable course to PMP (PMI) but with a continuing focus of management as opposed to tools. The course can be adapted to cover tools too and this would cover even more of the PMP syllabus.

CIPP™ Certified International Procurement Professional

In recent years, Strategic Procurement and Supply Chain Management have been receiving increased focus. This is due to the quick and large benefits that are available, often with minimal investment. These disciplines apply across all industries, in the same way as all companies require robust financial control. It is the experience of the discipline, not the industry, that leading companies are looking to develop. Effective management and control of these disciplines will make a material difference to your bottom line.

CICM™ Certified International Change Manager

Although change is one of the few certainties of life, it is often met with fear and resistance in the work place. Yet organisations have to change to adapt, improve and prepare for the future. As today's business environment is accelerating the pace of change, effective change management has never been so important. Expertise on change management will drive forward sustainable performance improvement to keep ahead of competitors, and meet ever changing and demanding customer expectations.
