ARC Certification 2023-1
Advanced Recognition and Certification (ARC)
Get project certified in 2023
Project management is a powerful tool for addressing the complex needs of today’s organisations.
Unlike narrowly focused fields – such as HR, marketing, finance or IT – project management brings together an array of skill sets spanning creative and critical thinking, leadership, risk, change and stakeholder management.
Simply put, project management provides a structured yet flexible framework for tackling a diverse range of initiatives faster, better and in a cost-efficient manner.
That is why project management is the most in-demand occupation in the world today.
