Program Overview

Project management adds value by improving the execution of strategy through repeatable, reliable performance and standardisation.

It brings integration of resources within an organisation through the removal of silos and facilitates the implementation of improved communication and collaboration. It also reveals opportunities for efficiency, savings and improved quality through the project lifecycle.

The CTPM® program is designed to enable learners to ensure good project management that will, in turn, help the result of the project improve its performance.

Learner Profile

This unique program is targeted at individuals looking to improve the overall performance of their telecommunications and data centre projects. Suitable for those with experience of telecommunications planning, installation and maintenance, the program addresses how to successfully design, develop, execute and close a project.

Program Structure

CTPM® is based upon the principles of the global standard for project management – the PMI’s PMBOK® – and adds technical input from the wealth of knowledge contained within CNet Training’s pioneering Global Data Centre Education Framework. This combination provides a unique non-generic project management program designed specifically for the real world of telecommunications design, planning and installation.

In an online environment consisting of twelve modules, the components of the five processes of project management – initiating, planning, executing, monitoring and controlling, and closing – are conveyed, while a project case study is constructed and synchronised with the program delivery. You will be assessed during and at the end of the program. There are twelve modules each with their own assessment which will take approximately 30 hours to complete in total.

Each module can be taken at leisure but all of them must be completed within the six months given.

Completion of all of the modules makes available an end test; an online exam which consists of forty multiple-choice questions. The assessment may be taken at a time convenient to you, but within the overall six months time frame given.
