On this accelerated 3-day Certified Project Manager (C|PM) course, you'll learn how to achieve project management performance objectives through digital technologies to drive business performance and long-term success.

Your expert instructor will guide you through the technologically advanced workflow methodology for project planning, helping you gain the knowledge and skills you need to track, analyse, optimise and automate day to day project management operations. You'll also learn:

  • Project Management & Enterprise Digital Transformation
  • Project Scope & Technology Integration
  • Project Scheduling & Time Management
  • 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 course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online C|PM courses

Jorge Neves . (27/4/2020 (Monday) to 1/5/2020 (Friday))

"The instructor was fantastic for CEH v10, and gave us a solid understanding of the exam - he also did his best for us by showing us industry standard equipment/knowledge that we should be familiar with outside of the exam. The instructor was very professional, responsive to help us, and was very well-versed in his teachings."
