Aberdeen-based project management training specialist Monitor has been chosen to deliver a pilot APMP ProgressorTM course, which is accredited by the Association for Project Management (APM). The Progressor course is designed for individuals who have worked within project management for up to two years and aims to provide an insight into how best practice techniques are implemented to effectively support a project.
It is hoped that the new course will generate the same high levels of interest as the Introductory Certificate in Project Management pilot courses, which were successfully delivered in Aberdeen in December '07 resulting in eight additional courses being made available to businesses in the area.
Monitor's training development manager, Alison Wood said: "We are delighted to have been awarded the opportunity to deliver the Progressor Course. Investment in the professional development of project management professionals can bring real benefits to the everyday workings of a company and as this course is currently fully subsidised for ECITB members it is an opportunity not to be missed.
"As well as addressing the key principles of project management techniques the course acts as an excellent preliminary to the new professional standard in project management - the Chartered Project Professional, which is expected to be introduced in 2009.
The pilot course is scheduled to take place in Aberdeen on 3-7 November and is free of charge to all site based staff of companies in-scope ECITB. Organisations wishing to find out more should contact Monitor on firstname.lastname@example.org.
