This programme provides students with knowledge and understanding of project management, together with a range of inter-related skills and competencies. Current news articles reflect the desperate shortages of project management skills in the public and private sector. These skills are required in both large scale construction projects as well as medium and small scale in-house projects. This certificate is an excellent introduction to this critical field of Management and includes basic General Management skills.

Project management skills are in demand in almost every institution. Project management allows practitioners to conceptualise, develop and implement projects. It is not the exclusive domain of the construction or building sector. Successful candidates will be able to progress to the Lyceum Advanced Project Management Certificate at NQF level 6.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) processes and Credit Accumulation and Transfer (CAT) are articulation mechanisms. The institution reserves the right to conduct a formal assessment for purposes of CAT. An evaluation will be conducted to recognise prior learning. This evaluation may or may not be based on a form of formal assessment and can include a portfolio of evidence submission. These mechanisms are in line with the HEQSF as envisaged in the NQF Act 67 of 2008 and the CHE “Policies on the Recognition of Prior Learning, Credit Accumulation and Transfer, and Assessment in Higher Education” published by the CHE in August 2016.

The final approval for applications in respect of CAT and RPL is subject to academic vetting in terms of applicable legislation and institutional policies.
