Practical Project Administration

Practical Project Administration

What is it about?

This project administration course is designed for delegates requiring an introduction to project administration. It provides the theory, techniques and tools necessary to administer a project. A skilled Project Administrator will not only take the administration load off the Project Manager, but will provide a dependable support structure to the entire project team.

It provides techniques, tips and real-life examples to handle all aspects of the project life cycle, regardless of the size and nature of the project.

Our project administration course materials are based on industry best practices from ISO standards and the Project Management Institute’s PMBOK® (Project Management Body of Knowledge).

How and when can I attend?

This is a three day event and the course is delivered with a blend of classroom training interventions and practical syndicate and individual sessions. All our facilitators are experienced Project Managers with PMP certification.

Delegates receive:

  • A course manual
  • Case study
  • Sample answers
  • PMBOK project management templates

A 30 minute multiple choice test will be conducted on the last day and on successful completion delegates receive a PM Academy certificate.

The project administration course may be delivered at our premises or alternatively we also tailor the course to be delivered in-house with sufficient attendees.

Do I qualify?

Course delegates should preferably have some experience in a project environment.

Delegates who successfully complete the course are encouraged to pursue the PM Academy Intermediate Project Management course.
