Learn to lead projects to success with our project management short courses in Sydney.

This project management course will provide you with an overview of the fundamental skills required to be an effective project manager and how to apply three of the more common project management methodologies to your specific requirements, namely PMBOK (Project Management Body Of Knowledge), PRINCE2 (Projects In Controlled Environments, 2nd edition), and AGILE (Iterative Project Method).

By learning PMBOK and PRINCE2 project management methodologies, we will equip you with a set of tools to gain competency in effectively managing projects.

PMBOK was the first project management methodology and formed the basis for sound project management methodology. PRINCE2 arose later and had an IT focus. By including both these methodologies in this project management course, you will have a solid basis for managing projects in a well-recognised and disciplined manner. If you're looking for an introduction to the fundamentals of project management then this project management course is for you!
