  • Project Management & Enterprise Digital Transformation
  • Project Scope & Technology Integration

  • Project Cost & Budget Management
  • Project Sourcing & Vendor Management
  • Project Controls & Quality Assurance
  • Project Opportunity & Risk Management

You'll be immersed in the curriculum through our unique Lecture | Lab | Review technique, which allows you learn and retain information faster than traditional courses. Access to 24/7 labs means you'll be able to test your hands-on management skills using digital tools and techniques whenever you like.

If you're a project manager interested in optimising and streamlining processes using digital technologies, this course is ideal for you.

During the course, you'll prepare for and sit the Certified Project Manager (C|PM) exam, covered by your Certification Guarantee.

Seven reasons why you should sit your C|PM course with Firebrand Training

  1. You'll be C|PM certified in just 3 days. With us, you’ll be C|PM trained in record time
  2. Our C|PM course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  3. Pass C|PM first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs
  4. You’ll learn more C|PM. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor
  5. You’ll learn C|PM faster. Chances are, you’ll have a different learning style to those around you. We combine visual, auditory and tactile styles to deliver the material in a way that ensures you will learn faster and more easily
  6. You’ll be studying C|PM with the best. We’ve been named in Training Industry’s “Top 20 IT Training Companies of the Year” every year since 2010. As well as winning many more awards, we’ve trained and certified 125,505 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business
  7. You'll do more than study C|PM courseware. We use practical exercises to make sure you can apply your new knowledge to the work environment. Our instructors use demonstrations and real-world experience to keep the day interesting and engaging

Benefits

Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study.

Effective technical instruction must be highly varied and interactive to keep attention levels high, promote camaraderie and teamwork between the students and instructor, and solidify knowledge through hands-on learning.

Firebrand Training provides instruction to meet every learning need:

  • Intensive group instruction
  • One-on-one instruction attention
  • Hands-on labs
  • Lab partner and group exercises
  • Question and answer drills
  • Independent study

This information has been provided as a helpful tool for candidates considering training. Courses that include certification come with a certification guarantee. Pass first time or train again for free (just pay for accommodation and exams on your return). We do not make any guarantees about personal successes or benefits of obtaining certification. Benefits of certification determined through studies do not guarantee any particular personal successes.
