This highly interactive 5-day course explains how projects can be managed using the Process Groups and Knowledge Areas that have been defined by the Project Management Institute (PMI)®. It is suitable for anyone who requires a working knowledge of globally recognized best practice in project management, particularly those working towards the Project Management Professional certification (PMP)®.
