About the Course

With the emergence of Project Management as a standalone profession, international accreditation that is accepted across industries is becoming increasingly important. The Diploma is suitable for individuals who may have practical experience of either being involved in projects or managing and leading projects but need to supplement this with the necessary education. This course is aimed at those who seek to employ professional project management methodologies in the Initiation, Planning, Execution, Control and Close-Out of their Projects.

The Diploma in Project Management is applicable to all industrial sectors (not just technical projects).

The Diploma covers all knowledge areas of the internationally recognised professional standard for the practice of Project Management, the PMBOK© (Project Management Body of Knowledge) which is administered by the PMI (Project Management Institute). CIT’s Diploma includes a detailed 2-day preparatory ‘boot-camp’ course for those candidates who intend to sit for the PMI credentials, the PMP® or CAPM®.

The Diploma combines advanced Project Management techniques and methodologies with the real-life experiences of an expert panel of leading project management lecturers from a wide range of industrial sectors. The course consists of a combination of lectures, seminars, case studies, guest speakers, simulations and practical projects. Course delegates complete various assignments in the class, as project teams and individual assignments.

The course is designed for those involved in a wide range of projects. Participants come from a broad range of sectors and backgrounds and are typically involved in the planning, control and execution of project work in the broadest sense.
