Project success through competence, confidence, and culture
Award-winning training, gamified simulations, and nationally recognised qualifications
BSB50820 Diploma of Project Management - for professional and accidental project managers
This is our flagship professional development program for project managers working in any industry. This nationally recognised qualification develops the hard/technical skills required to plan and organise projects, as well as the soft/leadership skills required to engage, influence, and lead people.
The role of a project manager is complex. We understand this, so in addition to traditional project management content our courses include a range of interpersonal, critical thinking and leadership skills to support the development of emotional intelligence and values driven behaviours.
Gamified simulations are at the leading edge of adult education, providing a powerful experience that bridges the gap between theory-based learning and work-based application. Participants practice new ways of working in a safe, controlled environment... not to mention they're great fun!
The Artful Argument - network based professional learning
The Artful Argument is a forum for leaders of complex projects and programs, PMOs, and project-based organisations from across the private and public sectors. Held out of hours, each session explores a different topic, challenge, or opportunity in a confidential and collaborative setting.
What makes training effective?
Training that is relevant, accessible, and practical enables participants to see how the learning supports their work and helps to overcome the challenge of applying new skills in the workplace.
Our course content is specifically curated to develop the knowledge, skills and mindset needed to succeed in today's ever-changing world.
Practical team-based activities enable learners to practice and experiment with new skills in a psychologically safe environment.
Making it stick
For three months after training, learners receive our Learning In Action series by email featuring articles, tips, and templates to keep the learning fresh and embed the behaviour change.
Thales Australia proves that whatever 2020 throws at us, investing in people and their professional development is essential and where there's a will, there's a way!
We customised our Diploma of Project Management for Thales Australia to align with their project management methodology and professional development framework. Then we converted it for online delivery in 2020.
12 months on, 71% of Diploma graduates are working in management roles and another 14% received a formal promotion after completing the course. Over 95% of participants completed the program, gaining their Diploma qualification with automatic professional certification with the Australian Institute of Project Management (AIPM).
A senior leader from Thales said that "the robust foundation provided by the Diploma course has armed the graduates with skills, confidence and a desire to learn more, which will serve them and the business well."
This program was recognised as a Finalist in the 2020 Australian Defence Industry Awards for Best Training and Mentoring Program.
