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® Guide (Project Management Body of Knowledge).

How is the course presented?

    Our experienced internationally accredited trainers deliver interactive and practical experiences through:
