Project Management Fundamentals Training

Our training solution offers experienced professionals the most critical insights for evaluating the progress of any project.

If you’re the one responsible for achieving outcomes on schedule, within budget, then you’re faced with these important questions:

  • How do I know my goals are being achieved?
  • How do I know I’m going to see results on time?
  • How do I know I’m not going over budget?
  • What do I do when unforeseen events disrupt my plans?

Our Project Management Fundamentals training solution provides the strategy and approach for answering these questions at any time during the project timeline.

Our training solution is based on the processes and principles of the Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) developed by the Project Management Institute (PMI.org), the world’s leading professional association for the project, program, and portfolio management profession.
