The Advanced Certificate in Project Management is a one-year learning programme that enables the learner to plan, establish, implement and manage fairly complex to complex projects.

Strong drivers for advanced project management training and development include the need to provide a comprehensive set of competencies that will enable the learner to achieve these objectives. In addition to large-scale projects, all businesses have the need to implement ongoing development in the form of smaller projects.

This programme responds to this need by providing students with a range of relevant theoretical and practical project management and administrative skills that will increase opportunities for their successful contribution towards our national developmental goals.

This programme is directed primarily at persons with prior project management knowledge, qualifications and work experience, and who would like to expand their project management competencies in any sector of the economy. It will be of benefit to individuals who intend to broaden their project management skills and who understand that a range of additional project management skills form an integral part of any successful and responsive work environment.
