Get Clear About Your Goals


Start with your needs. Before you type anything into Google, take a moment to evaluate why you are thinking about training. What prompted your need for project management training?

Ask yourself “what do I need to gain from this course?”.

Don’t over-complicate the answers, simply note down whatever pops into your mind when you ask that question. Write down several factors that come to your attention as you think.

Here are some of the most common answers we receive when we ask “What do you hope to get from a project management course?”.

  • "Practical project management skills."
  • "A structured approach to managing projects."
  • "A respected certification."
  • "Reliable tools and techniques I can use for any projects."
  • "To expand my project management capabilities."
  • "To learn a new project management technique."
  • "To underline my experience with an advanced certification."
  • "I have no experience. I need to start from the beginning."
  • "To keep my project management skills current and relevant."
  • "I want to train my team in project management skills."

You may identify with one or more of these statements, or have other goals we haven’t mentioned. Either way, you now have your starting point for finding your best project management course.

Prioritise Your Goals


Once you have listed all of your goals, it’s time to sort by level of importance. The simplest way to do this to divide the goals into 2 columns:

Planning Your Goals
  1. Have-to-Have: goals that you must achieve.


  2. Nice-to-Have: goals you are interested in achieving, but are at the lower end of the priority scale.

As with the first step, try not to overthink this. Complete a first draft quickly to see how many goals fall into the “have-to-have” column. You can always revise this at a later point in your research.

Start Searching Now…


Armed with your top priorities, you can now begin your quest for the very best project management course for your career.

We have 2 important tips here. First, don’t be overwhelmed by the sheer volume of information Google will return when you start looking. Explore until you find resources that make information clear and easy to digest.

The second tip we offer is to give yourself time. If you find the right course on your first sweep – fantastic! It is great to build in a little time for research, especially if you’re going to follow the next step.

Get Guidance and Recommendations

Don’t be afraid to ask project management training providers questions about their courses and certifications. They are the experts, and far from being an inconvenience, your query will be welcomed by any credible provider.
