Gone are the days when Project Management was reserved for Project Managers and typing for typists! Today, everyone is expected to master multiple skills, and projects have become a part of everyday workplace activities. But how many of us have had any formal training on project management? Nonetheless, we are still expected to plan, co-ordinate, budget for and run office projects on an ongoing basis.

This course will assist you to take on bigger and better projects and project your career beyond even your own expectations. You will learn how to manage time, resources, cost, risk and quality using a variety of practical hands-on exercise.
