QA proven to be industry’s number one choice for project management training
…QA continues to gain market share in delivering and supporting global project and programme management skills…
LONDON – Thursday 17th November 2011 – QA, the global training company that transforms performance through learning, today announced that it is officially the number one choice globally for individuals and organisations looking for project and programme management training.
According to independent figures* released by the APMG, QA is the largest global provider in PRINCE2®, MSP®, M_o_R®, P3O® and APMG-International’s Change Management Foundation for the first six months of this year.
Bill Walker, Commercial Director, QA, “I believe our number one status has been achieved through a combination of factors. QA has a world-class reputation for delivering high quality training programmes. This is backed up by our exceptional pass rates. Organisations know that if they come to QA for their training they will get an outstanding learning experience, delivered by industry experts – and their people are more likely to achieve the qualification.
“We’re also developing more ways for people to access learning, to suit the changes in working practice and people’s busy lifestyles. By offering a flexible and cost effective mix of classroom courses, evening classes, eLearning and mobile learning, we give people as many opportunities as possible to get the skills they need. Our qualified QA trainers also come from a broad range of industry backgrounds which means that they can provide practical advice on how to apply the text book knowledge within a real life environment.”
Individuals training with QA have achieved average pass rates of approaching 100% for project and programme management certification, including Agile Foundation, Agile Practitioner and PCM Foundation PRINCE2 Foundation, M_o_R Foundation, P30 Foundation, MSP Foundation, MoP Foundation and PCM Foundation. This is above the national average.
Walker, adds, “We believe the appetite for project and programme management training has also increased as more organisations become aware of how best practices can dramatically reduce project failure rates, reduce risks and allow better control of complex projects. However, from a learning perspective, project management certification is only the start; it is continuing professional development that makes truly successful project managers. By taking a closer look at the other skills needed to be effective, including communication and people management skills, and helping individuals to gain these extra skills, training and L&D professionals can help the individual and organisations achieve better results.”
