Practical Project Management

Probably the most all-round Project Management course on the market 

The purpose of our 3-day Practical Project Management course is to provide hands-on tools to manage projects. All elements of the project management profession are explained in a clear way, ready to use on the floor! Topics such as project scoping, estimating, planning, status reporting, risk management and many others are all clearly explained and put into practice by means of examples (case study). The course is fully in-line with the latest version of PMBOK (6th Edition). Furthermore it is a very good first step (however not sufficient) towards preparing for CAPM®/PMP® certification. Prosource has been approved by PMI to issue 24 PDU’s for this course.
