Project Management training options
Project Management is a management activity focused on a single and temporary initiative, the project, which requires the use of knowledge, skills, competence, tools and techniques to achieve specific goals.
The training offered by JPS for professional development in Project Management is designed on a modular basis to cover the specific needs of participant organizations.
The training is divided into two courses with complementary objectives:
- JProject is focused on principle Project Management tools and techniques and is designed for those wishing to improve their general knowledge of Project Management.
- PMP is more specifically focused on preparing for Project Management Professional (PMP) certification and is aimed at those who, having already relevant experience in Project Management or having already completed the JProject course, seek to certify their knowledge according to Project Management Institute standards.
JProject training course
The JProject course has been designed to enable its participants:
- to learn the basics of interpreting the development context of a project
- to identify and define the activities of the Project Manager throughout the life cycle of the project
- to define and implement tools and techniques used across different Project Management activities.
Consistent with the Project Management Institute (PMI®) body of knowledge, insights gained over the course relate to knowledge required by a Project Manager in the supervision of activities during the entire life cycle of a project, (from Commencement to Planning, Implementation, Monitoring, Control and Wind-down), across different fields of knowledge (relating to Project Integration, Scope, Scheduling, Costs, Quality, Human Resources, Communications, Risk, Procurement and Stakeholders).
