INTRODUCTION TO PROJECT MANAGEMENT – ONLINE COURSE
I’ve been running projects for around 25 years, managing around 200 in total. In that time I’ve learnt what works well and also made a few mistakes along the way. Like many people I just fell into the career – I didn’t have any understanding of project management fundamentals and in the early days I didn’t know the basic tasks that were needed to be consistently successful. So in this course I’ll be providing you with the information I wish I’d had when I started out!

This online video project management course is aimed at anyone who needs to run a project but has no previous project experience or knowledge. The objective of the course is to teach basic principles and techniques of project management in non-technical language, so that you can run your own project or oversee an employee doing this.
We present this in non-technical, straightforward language and guide you step-by-step though the basics of running a project, using a fictitious company and worked examples.
- Real-world practical examples
- Packed with advice and techniques
- No experience or knowledge required
This introductory course gives you what you need to run a straightforward project. The methods shown are real-world and practical, rather than aimed at passing a PM exam such as PMP or Prince2.
You’ll learn the fundamentals and key terminology of project management, as well as what makes a good Project Manager (PM). We explain the methods step-by-step, and how to put these into practice, using clear and concise language.
In this introduction to project management course you’ll get content that has been produced by an experienced practicing PM, which has been reviewed by other experts to ensure the content is the most relevant and useful.
Some recent reviews of our course from trainees
“This course gave me a clear and concise explanation of the stages and required documentation for project management, without overcomplicating things. I finally understand the process I need to go through, so I can start to take on the added detail other courses were feeding to me. Thank You.” Emma
“Really liked the instructor…he is obviously very experienced and did a great job in breaking down tasks and providing appropriate explanations for each portion of the module. I would definitely want him as an instructor again.” Geri
“I didn’t know anything about the topic other than common knowledge pieces. Now, I feel like I learned some fundementals and also I can clearly see there are so many things to learn. That is what should a beginner course do. Great job!” Onur
“This course exceeded my expectations. I’m PMP certified and still found things to learn from this. I took this course to learn someone else’s perspective on managing projects….The course is very well organized and I think it would be perfect for a beginner because it gets to the point with exactly what a PM would need to know to get started.” Kerri
