In-house Project Management training course achieves a 90% pass rate
Members of SgurrEnergy’s implementation team of highly skilled project managers, assistant project managers and project engineers, as well as a variety of others from around the business, recently passed the Association for Project Management Professional (APMP) qualification with flying colours.
Overall, the team achieved a highly impressive 90% pass rate being measured against a national average of 64%.
SgurrEnergy contracted 20|20 Business Insight, a leading provider of project management training services, to prepare and deliver an in-house course that was undertaken in short modules over a period of two months so as to minimise disruption to its clients.
Following this, candidates sat a three hour written paper which covered all of the major competencies of project management including budgeting and cost management, conflict management, communication, earned value management, leadership, negotiation and procurement.
Anthony Brennan at 20|20 Business Insight said: “It has been an enjoyable experience building the relationship with SgurrEnergy, like us they are a growing and exciting organisation.
We are proud of our continually high pass rates and the effort SgurrEnergy has put into to this programme to ensure it was successful. We look forward to continuing our relationship with SgurrEnergy.
The APMP is widely held as a gold standard entry qualification and demonstrates SgurrEnergy’s staff’s detailed understanding of project management and project-lifecycles and further highlights the skills and ability the company has to manage complex renewable energy projects throughout the world.
Martin Dunn, project engineer at SgurrEnergy, said: “The course provided a thorough grounding in project management theory and the opportunity to undertake it as a team promoted insightful discussions on how accepted best practice can influence the way in which we provide our services.”
