Project Management

QTC’s one-day Project Management workshop will build your skills to help you deliver project outcomes that meet project and corporate objectives and represent value for money.

As with all QTC education programs, the Project Management workshop combines discussions with practical exercises to reinforce concepts covered and allow techniques to be applied in a real-life context. The material is presented in an easy-to-understand manner by experts from within QTC and the private sector.
