If you’re looking to get into a project support or PMO role and have no experience, this is the course for you. It’s also good if you’re new to a project support / PMO role too.
At its basic, the course is a combination of project management fundamentals and how to use those fundamentals in a role like a Project Support Officer.
What does that mean?
Let’s take planning for example. It’s a technique in project management. A fundamental one, how to plan a project is one of the most important aspects of project management you need to know about.
On the PPSO Essentials course, you’re taught about planning on projects. What it is, what techniques are used, how people do it.
The thing is, you don’t need to actually plan a project yourself, that’s the job of the project manager.
So what does that mean?
You might be asked to update the project plan with a new date for example – or add a new resource to it.
You might be expected to take the plan, take a bit out of it and share it with the wider team to demonstrate where the project is right now.
You might be expected to provide a status report on where the project is now and what is expected to happen next week.
You’ll probably be looking after that plan for the project manager and keeping it safe so everyone knows which one is the current version.
And so on.
That’s what the PPSO Essentials course will go into. It’ll cover what planning is, how it’s used on a project and what you’re expected to know and do about it.
There’s no other course available that covers the same scope – is certified and is aimed at people with no or minimal experience in project management & project support.
