Project Management refers to the utilization of particular information, skills, tools, and procedures in order to provide people with something of value. Projects include things like constructing a building, providing relief following a natural disaster, expanding sales into a new geographic market, and developing software for better company processes.
The Halifax Chamber of Commerce is making a lot of effort to offer resources, information, and value to its members. In partnership with the Department of Labor, Skills, and Immigration, they will be providing a round of FREE online training programs to aid in the expansion of your business. Businesses, managers, and employees can take advantage of this program as a free membership benefit.
Starting on January 19, 2023, a 10-week course in Project Management will be offered once a week on Thursdays from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. The demand for these training sessions among their members is very high. Only sign up if you are really dedicated to taking part in this program. To be eligible to get the certificate, you must attend at least 80% of the sessions.
Once the training session is full, you will receive a call with the service registration intake form that must be fully completed and returned by the deadline in order to reserve your seat. When you submit your forms, your trainer will receive your contact information and get in touch with you to do an individual needs assessment to make sure this training is a good fit for you and your company. After that, your trainer will serve as your main point of contact for the training and give you instructions on how to attend the sessions each week.
This 40-hour training program’s tools and templates are made to help you manage any size project. Following accepted project management practices, the course will train students in:
• What is a project
• Project charter
• Work breakdown structure
• Assigning resources to project tasks
• Project budget
• Gantt chart
• Project risk
