This course leads to a QQI Level 6 Project Management certificate. This certification is recognised on the National Framework of Qualifications (NFQ).

There is no sit-down exam associated with this course. Instead, you apply your learning to assessment work that you complete in the 8 weeks following training.

This assessment work includes a project and a written assignment. We provide you with detailed, supporting assessment briefs outlining what you need to include in your work.

The project you use for your assessment can be a real project (past, present or future), or a hypothetical project you choose.

There are no experience requirements for this course, and beginners often attend. We do find that it’s helpful for participants to have some awareness or informal knowledge of how projects work.

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 provide all other course materials.

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 public 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

This course is 4 days long. We run this course during the week and training days run from 9.30am until 5.00pm.
