Professional Project Management

Course overview

The Professional Project Management (PPM) course is a comprehensive three day event based on the Association for Project Management’s (APM) Body of Knowledge and industry best practice.

The course is designed to reinforce, improve and advance the skills and techniques of project management staff to encourage them to make sound business decisions and thereby manage their projects to a successful conclusion.

The course covers project definition, planning, monitoring and controlling, time and cost management as well as the key ‘soft’ skills needed to manage a project team. The PPM course is designed to be run as a ‘stand-alone’ training solution or as a suitable feed into Provek’s 3-day APM PMQ workshop which prepares candidates for the APM PMQ examination.
