The aim of this two day workshop is to provide project managers, project team members and other key staff with the core skills required for successful project management.

Following the project life cycle, participants will be introduced to all the techniques for effective planning, implementation and control of their projects within the guidelines and procedures approved by their own organisations. They will also learn key communication and influencing skills essential for presenting themselves, their projects and working successfully with managers, colleagues and other providers associated with their projects.


Project managers, project team members and other key staff seeking to develop all the technical and people handling skills required for successful project management.

A core content is offered with the flexibility to adapt to particular audience needs. However, it should be noted that training in the use of computer software such as Microsoft Project would be an additional component to this programme.
