Why Choose In-House Training for Project Management?

The in-house (sometimes called 'in-company') format of this course is especially effective for project management teams. In fact, if you have a number of candidates for project management training, it can have a much higher impact than sending individuals on public courses. Here’s why:

  • Relevance

    When delivering this Certified Project Management course to your team, we can tailor the content to address a project your team are currently working on or planning for.
  • Consistency

    You will also ensure that all members of the team receive training in the same approaches and terminology. This contributes to the smooth running of projects and enables your teams to be more efficient.
  • Convenience

    By choosing an in-company format, you’ll eliminate travel costs for your team and minimise any disruption to your working schedule. You also gain the option to choose dates that suit your business calendar best.
  • Value

    The pricing structure we offer for in-company training works out as much more cost-efficient than public courses, in cases where a number of people require training.

  • Use the Reserve a Place buttons below (select classroom or virtual).
  • Call us on Freephone 1800 910 810 to speak with our training consultants and secure your spot.

We recommend thinking about and selecting a project case study to work with for your assessment. You will also use this project as the basis for exercise work during the course, so it’s important to have a project in mind before starting the course.

The only thing you need to bring with you is your project case study idea.

We do not supply the case study projects as it’s important that you choose a project that is relevant to you to draw on for your project work.

This does not have to be a “live” project in progress, or even a real project you have worked on. It can be a hypothetical project.

It’s helpful to think about something you would like to work on, either in your current role or somewhere you have worked previously.

Our trainer can guide you in how to work with your chosen subject, but it’s important to have your project in mind when you begin the course.

Our classroom Certified Project Management Courses run in Dublin all year-round. We hold our training dates in venues close to the M50, so that they are accessible from all directions. All training venues have complimentary parking.

You can connect to our live virtual training from wherever you are currently based.
