Hydro Group 4b – Advanced Recognition and Certification

Why should I take this course?

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.

What will I learn?

The Advanced Recognition and Certification (ARC) workshop series is a wholly interactive experience in which participants initiate, plan, deliver and close an actual project.

Over 12 collaborative sessions, our expert facilitators leverage your latent project experience, connecting a common frame of reference, common purpose and common-sense approach to the cohesive delivery and oversight of professional and personal projects.

The workshop series is also self-contained, in that you complete assessment activities in class with no on-going homework or examination requirements.

Where will it take me?

Candidates who successfully complete the ARC workshop are admitted to the Institute of Project Management as a Certified Project Officer (CPO).

Upon completing the subsequent requirements, candidates may also be assessed at a higher level Certification within 6 months of completing the workshop at no extra cost:

  • Certified Project Professional (CPP) – leads projects
  • Certified Project Master (CPM) – leads project teams
  • Certified Project Director (CPD) – leads project managers

Candidates can also go on to complete the BSB40920 Certificate IV in Project Management Practice or the BSB50820 Diploma of Project Management at a significantly reduced price.

Your facilitator

Like all our Certified Project Trainers, Cansu Col, CPM is:

  • a proven industry expert with a minimum of 10 years’ practical experience in leading complex projects, programs and portfolios of work
  • an inspiring communicator
  • a creative and critical thinker, and
  • a trained educator, facilitator and mentor.

Importantly, she is not a professional lecturer who has only learned project management from text-books and classrooms.

Cansu superimposes a wealth of project skill and experience from all stakeholder perspectives that brings project management to life for learners.

In doing so, she looks beyond the curriculum to add value to students and their employers.
