Embracing the Sunshine: P3O® Foundation Shines Bright this Summer

We are now in the middle of UK British summer, and we have a few courses coming up in August for you to complete. But why is now the perfect time for you to complete the P3O® Foundation course?

With the weather being warmer and the sun coming out, exposure to sunlight is thought to increase serotonin, boost your mood, and make you feel calmer and more focused.

Our P3O® Foundation course is only 3 days and is coming up on the 16th-18th of August. This course is also held in our virtual classroom, so you can complete it at home and in your garden if you want!

August is also a great time to complete training as many people have already been away on holiday in June/July, so you may have already had a break from work and now you’re back and more motivated to complete your goals before the end of the year. Take this opportunity to improve your knowledge and understanding of PMO before the days get shorter and the nights get darker.

Why P3O®?

So now we have the perfect time to complete a training course but why should you take P3O®? The Portfolio, Programme, and Project Offices (P3O®) Certifications from AXELOS are popular qualifications in the UK for people working within or leading a PMO function. Many PMOs operating today have adopted the P3O® model.

The Foundation Certification is aimed at those working within a PMO who are looking to understand the model and concepts used in P3O®. You’ll be working in a team role like Project Administrator, Project Coordinator, or PMO Analyst. It’s also a perfect baseline accreditation that demonstrates your commitment to a career in PMO.

What will you learn?

In the course, learners will:

  • Learn about the high-level P3O model and its component offices.
  • Understand the key differences between Portfolio, Programme, and Project Management.
  • Explore the key functions and services of a P3O.
  • Understand the reasons for establishing a P3O model.
  • Learn about the differences between types of P3O model and the factors that influence the selection of the most appropriate model.
  • Identify the processes to implement or re-energize a P3O.
  • Learn about the tools and techniques used by a P3O.
  • Understand the purpose and significant responsibilities of the defined roles in a P3O.
  • Prepare to pass the P3O Foundation exam and become P3O Foundation certified.

What happens after the course?

If you’ve completed the P3O® Foundation, then there are a few ways you can continue your training.

If you want to carry on with P3O® certifications, then your next step is P3O® Practitioner.
