I have now taken the intro to project management & the Certified Project Management Diploma and really enjoyed both courses. Working in the NGO sector I believe all senior managers should have a grounding in PM. I will be recommending this qualification & provider to the managers I support.

I'd highly recommend the Institute of Project Management

I'd highly recommend the Institute of Project Management. I've been working in Tech for 8 years now and the Agile Project Management class turned into a huge unlock for me, it was the way our dev teams have been doing business and the environment we work in the entire time. I look forward to getting my next PM credential from you.

The caliber of lecturers is very high and the course content, material and delivery are excellent. I've taken the PMP preparation course and passed on the 1st attempt. The Diploma in Strategic Project & Programme Management was equally excellent with relevant use cases, course work, and high quality lectures over a diverse range of topics.
