Yes, we are! Our relationship with the Project Management Institute goes back to 2011 when we became a Registered Education Provider (REP). We became an Authorized Training Partner (ATP) in 2020.

Project management is an applied discipline and many of today’s project managers have developed their own ways of working and have achieved great things through trial and error. However, by learning about the industry-standard, tools and techniques available to you, you can avoid a lot of expensive mistakes.

By taking a project management training course with Velopi, you will learn an internationally-recognized vocabulary and will discover how to approach the management of projects in a way that would work in any setting.

Overall, we find that our students, particularly the ones that have earned either professional or academic credentials, feel more confident in their roles and find themselves eager to expand their spheres of influence.

Ireland is no different from any other country in terms of project management. However, many US multinationals have facilities here in Ireland and, for the most part, they embrace the teachings of the Project Management Institute and, as such, are interested in hiring people who understand this way of working.

If you are new to the country and seeking employment, we recommend taking one of our public courses. Not only will you gain project management knowledge and skills, you will also have ample networking opportunities to establish contacts with organizations that take project management seriously.

Also, if you are currently out of work, many of Velopi’s courses are delivered through the Skillnets organizations and they provide very attractive discounts, particularly for the unemployed.

Project management is a transferable skill. Thus these courses are relevant to all industries from Medical Devices, through Pharmaceutical, Financial Services, Construction & Engineering, the Public Sector, to Information & Communications Technologies.

This is reflected in the nature of our case study exercises. Students quickly realize that the problems they have faced in the workplace are very similar to those outlined in class.

Students also meet project managers from other industries and networking with these brings home the universal nature of most project management issues.

Yes we do! Please contact us to discuss your requirements. Many of our courses can also be delivered, face-to-face, at your own facility.
