The start of the year saw the end of our first series of CAPM training days at the University of Bath. Four sessions provide the knowledge and eligibility criteria to apply for the PMI (project Management Institute’s) globally-recognised professional PM certification – the Certified Association in Project Management (CAPM). These were delivered for researchers and research staff in the University of Bath as a joint venture between the Doctoral College and Academic Staff Development.
This workshop “CAPM Preparation Day” was the last of the four, after which candidates can apply to sit the CAPM exam.
Participants gave the session an overall rating of 4.43 out of 5 (5 being Excellent), with comments like:
- “This is a really good course, and has helped me get a job in project management – can’t say better than that!”; and
- “Difficult to fault the workshop series.”
- “It was overall a good course with the additional exam prep day which made me more confident that I could successfully pass the exam.”
When asked what they found most useful, the Top 5 comments included:
- “Having an experienced professional in the sector.”
- “The applicability.”
- “The practice exam questions and explanation of how to prepare for the exam.”
- “Practice questions and the handout that was given.”
- “[The trainer] presented the entire workshop series at a good pace with great expertise. [Their] manner and approach was engaging, interesting and entertaining.”
The best feedback from this session in my opinion, is that it gave someone the skills and confidence to take the next step in their career progression:
- “This is a really good course, and has helped me get a job in project management – can’t say better than that!”
