Who Should Attend:

      Project management is being increasingly recognized as a vital skill-set for many management positions, not just those with the title of “project manager”. The course is designed for Managers and Engineers who are directly responsible for the management of engineering projects. It is also beneficial to Engineers in the Design and Procurement field who by the nature of their work are required to work closely with Project Teams during the planning and implementation phases of projects.
