Maximizing Project Success: In-House P3O® Foundation Training for Your Team

What is In-House training?

In-house training is for organisations that have 6 or more delegates who want to take the same PMO course. At PMO Learning, we can bring any of our certification or specialist courses in-house for your team or entire organisation, either virtually or at your location. We also provide bespoke and customised PMO training to meet your organisation’s culture, objectives, and goals.

Why would you choose to run a PMO course in-house over a public course?

Here are some reasons why doing a course in-house might be better for your organisation than joining a public course:

  1. Cost – It can be cheaper to run a course in-house than to send 6 delegates on a public course. Get in touch with our training specialist to discuss prices and discounts for your organisaiton.
  2. Time – You can choose the dates and times you want to run the PMO course that aren’t on our public schedule. We can do both virtual and classroom courses; you set the location and leave the rest to us.
  3. Customisation – In-house courses can be tailored to your organisation’s specific needs, industry, culture, and challenges. Public courses are typically more general and may not address your organisation’s unique requirements.
  4. Relevance – In-house courses will use real-world examples from your organisation and case studies to make the content/syllabus relevant to your needs and engaging for the employees.
  5. Team-building – In-house training can aid teamwork, collaboration, and communication between your team and organisation.
  6. Consistency – In-house training ensures all employees receive the same standard of training and leads to consistent knowledge and practices in your business.
  7. Track progress – As in-house courses are designed to meet your organisations’ needs and are tailored to specific goals, it is easier to track progress after the course with your employees and ensure the training has directly supported and benefited your organisation.
  8. Confidentiality – In-house courses ensure all information and examples that are used are confidential and not shared with anyone outside the business as they would be on a public course.


P3O® Foundation Training for Teams

P3O® Foundation is a great course to run in-house for your team. The P3O® Foundation Certification is a 3-day course for those working in a Programme or Project Management Office.

The course covers the fundamentals of P3O®, giving you a solid foundation in the P3O® model, the terminology, and concepts involved – the course also covers the key functions and services in a P3O® model – considered to be one of the most useful areas for a PMO practitioner. The course also covers the tools and techniques used in a P3O® and looks at the different types of PMOs with the model.

For in-house courses we work with customers across different sectors/industries and regions. We have run numerous P3O® Foundation courses for universities, telecommunications companies, and digital marketing agencies.

Here are a few of the reasons companies chose to run the P3O® Foundation course in-house;

  • To make sure the whole team understands the roles and responsibilities of the PMO and everyone within it.
  • Have everyone on a level playing field in terms of knowledge.
  • All employees can understand best practices for operating a P3O.
  • Increase knowledge and understanding to develop a business case to embed P3O in the organisation.
  • The flexibility of running a course on dates that are best suited for the business.

After the course, P3O® Foundation learners were able to:

  • Demonstrate a greater understanding of Project, Programme and Portfolio Management in the context of P3O.
  • Demonstrate a better understanding of the different types of PMOs within the P3O model.
  • Understand and articulate the need for PMOs within an organisation.
  • Use the P3O functions and services guidance to implement new services or update existing ones.
  • Share group experiences and develop knowledge within the organisation.
  • Demonstrate progress to becoming a competent PMO practitioner.
