Need Project Management Accreditation?

Interested in getting a project management certificate?Great! It’s the next step in fast-tracking your career and empowering you professionally – the only question is: where do I get certified?


The wealth of institutions that offer project management courses in South Africa can be a little intimidating (not even to speak of the variety of coursers they offer); best place to start, as with everything, is to simply do a little research.


Although there are a number of accredited project management courses to choose from, finding the institution that’ll be your meal ticket come exam time should be your first move. You’ll have to consider your budget, whether or not you’d like to complete the course online and the quality of the accreditation, but it all boils down to one thing: reputation. Whatever your choice, just make sure that the institution you pick is responsible for creating successful project managers.


Next, you’ll have to prep for your course. As these accreditations are widely offered by colleges, universities and business schools, it’s a good idea to find out exactly what’ll be covered in yours. Compare courses to find the one that’ll mean value-for-money for you and get cracking.


If you’re going to pass with flying colours, you’ll probably have to find out how you’ll be assessed, too. Typically, essays and projects, as well as exams, will be required before you get to pick up that certificate come graduation time. Others require work placements and actual experience or reflective assessments and group work.


Whatever your decision, never compromise on one thing: accreditation. Spending your savings on a course that’ll improve your professional skills is only half of the goal here, after all. You have to be sure that the achievement you’ll put on a CV will be recognised wherever you send it. Applying at an accredited institution will also reassure you that the course chimes with the global standard.


You’ve likely gotten yourself a long way professionally, but in a competitive climate that is constantly changing, the truth is that you’ll benefit greatly from knowing how to handle it – and having others know that you can, too!
