New to Working in PMO

At Level One of the PMO career path, the PMO which features the most is the Project level PMO.

The types of jobs which are typical at this level are:

  • Project Administrator
  • Project Co-ordinator
  • Project Support Officer

Level One is not just for people completely new to PMO, it’s also for people who have been working for a few years and are learning project management support as they gain more and more experience.

At this level, you need understanding of formal project management and an understanding of the different tasks and activities that each of these roles performs. To get that knowledge, many opt for the Essentials for PMO Administrators™. With a few years experience, you’ll also be ready for the P3O Foundation® course too.
