Project Management Essentials: Part 1 - The Fundamentals

  • Project Management
  • Course Code: 96006

Gain the knowledge, skills and confidence to manage real world projects with success.

This course covers the complete project life cycle — from project initiation and definition, through project implementation, and finally to the often-neglected project completion phase. Integration of a realistic project simulation throughout the course challenges participants with the same kinds of twists and turns that real projects often experience. With expert facilitation by some of today’s top thought leaders in project management, this course is ideal for those that want to obtain a solid foundation in project management fundamentals.

This is the first of three courses within our “essential series”, however, project team members and project managers involved in small to mid-size projects may find that this is the only project management course they will ever need.

How You Will Benefit

  • The use of a realistic project simulation enables participants to go well beyond the theory, understand the true value of applying the learned techniques, and experience how to deal with the type of challenges and issues that typically occur on actual projects.
  • Facilitation and guidance from an expert project management practitioner
  • Course workbook including, case study, exercises, and sample solutions
  • Customizable project management templates (e.g., project charters, communication plans, etc.) provided in both hard-copy within the course workbook and in MS Word format
  • Reference files containing course specific and general project management materials
  • Certificate of completion

This course is part of the Canadian Construction Association Gold Seal Certificate Program. Participants of this course will receive a Gold Seal Certificate as well as 3 SICS credits.


Who Should Attend

Individuals who are both new to project management and experience project managers who have not had formal project management training, project team members, subject matter experts who contribute to projects and “accidental” project managers - those for whom project management is a secondary part of their role.

When delivered in-house, Project Management Essentials is very effective in “jump-starting” a team embarking on a medium to large-scale project, and can be held over three consecutive days, or 1 day/week over three consecutive weeks.
