Certifying project managers is getting more and more popular. Perhaps you have worked as a project manager for a couple of years and you are now considering getting certified. Perhaps your clients have to a large extent started requesting that their supplier should be certified?
We have noticed a growing interest for certifying individual project managers. However, most requests have come from consultant companies where project management is an important competitive tool.
In this workshop we will show you what this means.
In this workshop, we will outline the various certifications that are available for project managers, how they are constructed and the requirements they impose.
You also get a clear view of the time you need to spend and guidance about how you can succeed in this effort.
Participants are given the opportunity to discuss the purpose of certification, both for the company and for the individual.
