Could you tell me about the exciting training you participated in?
I recently completed a game-changing training program that I am thrilled to share with you. It was a certified Advanced Introduction to Project Management course that lasted for ten half-day virtual sessions. The training was intense, interactive, and left me feeling highly empowered and motivated to put my new skills into practice.
Can you share with me the story behind how you got involved in this exciting training program?
As a Senior Client Engagement Manager, I understand that professional development is a never-ending journey. Despite my considerable experience working with project charters, I recognised a gap in my knowledge regarding project management theory. I knew that to take on more significant responsibilities, I needed to acquire formal training in this critical field.
When ANIXE announced the availability of their certified Advanced Introduction to Project Management course, I jumped at the opportunity. The ten half-day virtual sessions were intense, immersive, and highly interactive, which made all the difference.
The training was nothing short of eye-opening, providing me with a solid foundation in project management theory and best practices. From project planning and execution to monitoring and control, the course covered every aspect of effective project management, offering me invaluable insights into successful project delivery.
What was the duration of the training program?
The certified Advanced Introduction to Project Management course was a month-long journey of growth and learning for me. The course was held in March, and it was a commitment of ten highly interactive virtual sessions, each spanning 3-4 hours, from 1 pm to 5 pm.
Admittedly, the training was intense and required dedication, but the experience was unique and invaluable. Rather than just passive listening, the training was designed as a workshop where participants were encouraged to engage in tasks actively.
The hands-on approach made the course engaging and challenging, and I came away from it with a wealth of knowledge and practical skills that I can't wait to put into practice. While it was a few days a week occupied by training, it was worth it for the opportunity to learn and grow in my career.
What is the target audience for this training?
This training program breaks barriers and welcomes participants from all walks of professional life. Whether you're a seasoned IT professional or come from a different field altogether, this training is designed to empower you with the knowledge and skills needed to excel in running projects.
We had a diverse mix of participants from various teams at ANIXE, including the Culture and Talent department. This brought a unique blend of backgrounds and expertise that created a dynamic learning environment where different perspectives enriched the discussions.
What's truly remarkable about this training is its universal applicability. The concepts and principles taught go beyond the boundaries of IT and can be successfully implemented in any field. So, whether you're involved in people management, software development, or any other domain, this training equips you with the tools to thrive and achieve remarkable results.
After investing all that time and effort, the burning question remains - was there a final exam?
No, there was no exam at the end of the course, but we received a certificate of participation. However, the training was designed to prepare participants for the highly demanding PMP exam, which is one of the most sought-after certifications in project management. To take the PMP exam, candidates must have proven experience in managing projects, and this training is an excellent way to gain the necessary knowledge and skills.
Even though I'm just starting my journey in project management, I'm confident that the knowledge and insights gained from this training will prove invaluable in the future.
