GENERAL INFORMATION

What we do, and how we work, to make sure you get the most from the courses you attend

Project Management Essentials training

The courses in Activia's Project Management Essentials range teach you about project management, but are not aimed at certification.

This is because most people who run projects don't need certification . and they can't afford the time out of the office, the pre-reading . and the exams!

This means that our courses have great advantages, including:

  1. They cost less, so you save money
  2. They're much shorter, so you're away from work for less time
  3. They're less limited, so you get a much broader understanding of running projects
  4. They can be tailored for private needs, so you or your staff can learn just what they need
  5. We offer more than one course in this range, so why not see what's on offer?

Free Tools from Activia

With Activia, you can check your skill level with our unique, free Test Your Skills tool, which ensures you book on the correct course.   This is invaluable when putting together training programmes or bespoke courses for numbers of delegates.

You can also build your own Project Management Essentials course using our great, free Bespoke Course Creator to suit your own or your company project requirements, including just the subjects you want to learn.
