Overview

About the Level 4 Advanced Project Management Certificate

This advanced project management course is one step up from our beginners’ project management course. This means that the materials offer a more challenging and in depth view into the world of project management. Students enrolling on this course can expect to expand on their previous knowledge of this topic and become successful and efficient leaders.

During the course of their project management training with learndirect, students will complete five informative modules. These online units aim to teach students all they need to know about topics including: project planning, finances and resources, quality and risk, and people and communications.

Who should study this course?

This project management certification has been specifically designed for individuals who have already completed our project management course and want to further their understanding. It is also suitable for those who have some lived experience of project management who want to improve their practice.

Students do not need any formal qualifications or proven experience before enrolling on this home learning course. All we ask is that they have an interest in the topic, a way to access our home study materials and the motivation to engage in independent study.

What happens after the course?

On successful completion of this distance learning qualification, students will have gained an in depth understanding of project management and the skills involved in this career. Students will be able to take these skills, and channel them into future job roles.

Even if our graduates do not become project managers, there are plenty of areas in which these skills will come in handy. Professions which are related to this advance project management course include, but are not limited to:

  • Project manager
  • Team manager
  • Manager
