Overview

PMI Training Partner

Prove your ability to oversee and manage simultaneous projects and their resources on this globally recognised PMI PgMP® course. You’ll gain advanced program management knowledge and become more effective in the implementation of multiple projects.

Learn how to efficiently group projects to achieve more organisational success than if they were managed separately.

Define, create and manage successful programmes

You’ll cover PMI’s model for programme management practices - a framework that concisely and comprehensively describes programme management regardless of business, industry or size of organisation.

On this PgMP course you’ll learn:

  • Strategic programme management
  • Initiating, planning and executing a programme
  • Controlling and monitoring programme processes
  • Transition plan execution and programme closing

Seven reasons why you should sit your PgMP course with Firebrand Training

  1. You'll be PgMP certified in just 3 days. With us, you’ll be PgMP trained in record time
  2. Our PgMP course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  3. Pass PgMP first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We're sure you'll pass your PgMP course first time. But if you don’t, come back within a year, and only pay for accommodation and exams. Everything else is free
  4. You’ll learn more PgMP. 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 PgMP 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 PgMP with the best. We have the Q-For quality label, recognising our standards and professionalism in the training market. As well as winning many more awards, we’ve trained and certified 105152 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business
  7. You'll do more than study PgMP 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

Firebrand Training provides instruction to meet every learning need:

  • Intensive group instruction
  • One-on-one instruction attention
  • Hands-on labs

  • Question and answer drills

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.
