Becoming a Project Manager – where should you start?

“The project manager’s role in a nutshell is the overall responsibility for the successful planning, execution, monitoring, control and closure of a project” says Project Smart.

You need to be able to motivate people, communicate, multi-task, plan and work under pressure. If these attributes suit you and you are looking to become a competent and professional project manager, then you need to get yourself qualified in PRINCE2.

If you want to go down a flexible route to achieve PRINCE2 Foundation or Practitioner certificates , then distance learning is often the most convenient route.  It provides a straightforward route to becoming certified to PRINCE2 Foundation or Practitioner status in your own time and at your own pace. This also allows you to fit your studies around your work schedule.

Our PRINCE2 2009 Passport Distance Learning Package – Foundation is a great place to start. The package contains learning modules for both Foundation & Practitioner courses and is accredited by the APM Group to support distance learning for PRINCE2 Foundation certificate, meaning that you can become certified from the comfort of your own home!
