Professional Certificate of Competency in Project Management for Engineers & Technicians (Online Learning)

0 Reviews

Course Description


More and more engineering and technical professionals are making career transitions from product design into project management. This, however, requires formal training and a willingness to learn new skills. All the technical knowledge in the world will not deliver a project successfully, with the necessary level of quality, within cost constraints and on time, without proper project management skills.

Unfortunately, very few engineering professionals have any degree of formal project management training, which results in a great deal of personal stress as well as cost blowouts and other woes.

Learners are able to:
• Focus on the critical project-related activities such as work breakdown, scheduling, cost control, and risk management, and show how these can be performed with software to lighten the project manager’s workload.
• Learn how to introduce appropriate quality management procedures, keep your projects on track using the ‘Earned Value Analysis’ method, exercise an appropriate leadership style and keep team members creative and motivated, and avoid the pitfalls caused by a lack of understanding of the legal issues pertaining to projects.

  • Entry Requirements
