Our courses delivered with Staff Welfare & Development at University College Cork (UCC) once again got excellent ratings. Two practical and hand-on introductory-level sessions in Project Management held for staff undertaking our professional CAPM programme rated 4.91 and 4.81 respectively out of 5 (5 being Excellent).
These sessions – followed by Intermediate, Advanced and CAPM Prep days – provide the knowledge and training hours required to sit the Project Management Institute’s (PMI) professional exam. The PMI’s Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) is recognised globally, and the Fistral CAPM suite provides tools and techniques that can be used on immediate return to desk or lab, as well as the understanding and pre-requisites for the PMI exam itself.
