Course description

Our Project Management Fast Track course will push your Project Management skills to a new level.

Is this the best one-day Project Management course you'll find?

We think it probably is!

Prepare yourself for a high intensity day where you will be taken through the full project management life cycle for a complete demonstration, and understanding, of what professionally managing a project actually involves.

There's lots of interactivity, with questions, exercises, and discussion points.

And in the final module you'll even work through a full project to see how it all flows.

What's more, you get a workbook for your notes as you go along, and which you keep so you can refer back to it after the course.
