Congratulations, you made it through the 163 days of January…
The beginning of a new year always feels like a fresh start, making it the perfect time to set yourself some goals for the year ahead and decide what you want from the next 12 months. And if you’re looking to learn something new, then you’re in the right place.
Here are three of the top sectors you can get qualified in this month:
Want to feel like project management royalty? PRINCE2® can get you there.
There are a number of PRINCE2® Accredited Courses on offer, at both foundation and practitioner level. By enrolling, you can gain the skills and certifications of one of the world’s most widely-adopted project management methods. Not to mention that becoming a registered PRINCE2® Practitioner can help boost your career in the industry.
You also have the option to study to become MSP and ITIL accredited, or take one of the five courses from Six Sigma offering a mixture of their Green Belt and Black Belt courses.
With so many great courses to choose from, you’re bound to find something that suits your current situation, whether you’re an existing project manager, a project executive, a team leader or a complete newbie looking to get your foot on the project management ladder.
Gaining new qualifications is always beneficial for your career. And in taking one or more of these project management courses you can increase your employment opportunities and find yourself in the running for higher-salaried roles.
Perfect for: People who are always organised and keep cool under pressure.
What do I need? If you’re starting at Foundation level, you won’t need any previous qualifications to get started. However, if you want to study at PRINCE2® Practitioner level, you’ll need to gain a PRINCE2® Foundation qualification first.
