Benefits – individual?

Upon completion, candidates will be able to demonstrate a broad knowledge of project management, which will enable them to participate in projects ranging from individual assignments to substantial capital projects. Candidates will be able to improve techniques in risk assessment, planning and reporting and ‘softer’ elements of project management such as communication, motivation and teamwork.
