This advanced project management workshop will provide delegates who are familiar with project management with the skills and knowledge to become more effective project managers.

Although the course is not Prince 2 accredited our trainer is a Prince 2 practitioner so delegates can enquire about these methodologies if they wish. The course links into our Introduction and Intermediate courses, so delegates new to project management can attend all three to become a successful project manager.
