Project management training

Training for project managers, engineers and technical staff

Our expert trainers all have many years’ practical experience which they use to inform their highly focused and relevant project management training. The programmes cover all aspects of the project management discipline, from the basics of project planning to the specifics of R&D projects to the challenges of project leadership, as well as other issues relevant to project teams, engineers and technical staff, such as Agile, specification writing, financial and commercial awareness, etc, etc. The advertised programmes and workshops can all be tailored to meet your particular needs – some of them are even designed to be built around your own ‘live’ projects – but if you can’t see what you are looking for then we would be more than happy to develop a project management training programme specially for you.


Looking for a virtual option? Most of our programmes can also be delivered in webinar formats.
