Project Management Training

As someone who either is a project manager, or is planning to become one, you will benefit from project management training. However, picking the right course for you depends a lot on where you are in your project management career.

In Velopi, we divide our courses up broadly into those leading to some sort of either professional or academic accreditation and those that do not. We have developed these courses in order to impart the essential skills of project management. We use hands-on exercises and engaging case studies to reinforce the course material and to allow our students to transfer their new knowledge immediately to the workplace.

Basic Project Management Training

Velopi offers four, practical courses to introduce project management competencies to those starting out on their project management careers. All of these courses are grounded in the Project Management Institute’s Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide), ensuring that our students learn an internationally recognized approach to project management.

Ideal for aspiring project managers, these courses offer practical training based on the PMBOK® Guide.

The credentials require that the applicant be at a certain point in their career trajectory before being allowed to take the exam.
