And in the module ‘Project Planning’ you will be trained in the planning processes of the Project Management Body of Knowledge. Commonly known as PMBOK, this is a collection of processes, best practices and guidelines that are considered standard in the field of project management.
Develop your project management skills
Once you have completed these first training blocks, the ‘Project Execution’ module is designed to instruct you in the process of executing any project, such as the organisational aspects that need to be taken into account, the management skills on site, or the strategies and negotiation techniques that are needed.
