Why Choose this Training Course?
Engineering projects are, without doubt, the most challenging and complex type of project there is. This is because engineering projects are continuously pushing the limits of modern technology and human skills in order to deliver results that are better and more efficient than ever before. Engineering projects are also carried out in environments that vary widely from one project to the next. The consequences of a failed engineering project are often catastrophic, ranging from severe health and safety impacts, to environmental damage and extreme financial penalties.
It is therefore of vital importance that engineering projects are managed as effectively and efficiently as possible. Without this, most engineering projects will, at best, suffer from delays and cost over-runs but, at worst, may result in human fatalities, environmental damage, and severe financial loss. This Engineering Project Management training course is designed to help develop the skills of both existing and aspiring Project Managers, Engineers, and Team Leaders in the fundamental aspects of engineering project management, providing them with the ability to successfully manage and deliver engineering projects of any size and complexity.
