Project Management Training Workshops

All workshops now available in Live Stream format.

Similar to the in-class workshops, Live Stream workshops are delivered using a virtual platform where the instructor is online and leads the class providing the same coverage that students would have received attending in person.

The instructor provides lectures, gives students exercises to reinforce the learning, and also answers questions, elaborates on topics covered, and facilitates class discussions. Students receive all course materials before class start and are able to follow along the course delivery with their materials. You should register at least five days before class start to receive course materials.

Many students really like this format. It allows participants to take the training from the comfort of their home, office, and many other locations. It eliminates the need for travel and allows you to make better use of you availability. The workshops are the same start date and duration as provided on the course page, typically starting at 9 a.m., with morning and afternoon breaks
