Your career in Project Management may begin with professional training, but in order to succeed in this competitive industry, you will need a mixture of the right training and the appropriate skills and experience of running projects.
Project Management courses are often sector agnostic and focus on the specific project management framework as well as the tools and techniques involved in the application. Many of the project management approaches that are in existence today have been taken from the construction industry but have now been applied across many industries.
As someone new to project management, you would be likely to start off in a junior role or as a project assistant, or co- Ordinator. These junior- level positions can provide exposure to project- based work but without the pressure. Having gained some experience at the junior level, you could progress into a project management role and then into a senior role. After a substantial time in project management, you could progress to the next level of programme management where you would be responsible for multiple projects.
In order to achieve such progression, you would be well- advised to take qualifications and join a professional association. There are many different project management professional bodies, each with their own certification scheme. For example:
The APM offers the following certifications:
• APM Project Fundamentals Qualification (PFQ) – an introductory course in project management terminology. No prior project management knowledge or experience is required.
• APM Project Management Qualification (PMQ) – a knowledge-based qualification that allows candidates to demonstrate an understanding of all elements of project management. You’ll need some previous experience of working in a project management role and will ideally have completed the PFQ.
• APM Project Professional Qualification (PPQ) – covers the core and specific competences project professionals require. It is aimed at all those working in project management and looking to become a member of the APM.
• APM Practitioner Qualification (PQ) – for experienced professional with at least three years’ experience.
A variety of certificates for experienced project managers are also available from the PMI. In most cases you will need a degree and at least three years of project management experience for entry onto these programmes. Courses include:
• Project Management Professional (PMP)
• Program Management Professional (PgMP)
• Portfolio Management Professional (PfMP)
• Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)
• PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)
• PMI Risk Management Professional (PMI-RMP)
• PMI Professional in Business Analysis (PMI-PBA)
• PMI Scheduling Professional (PMI-SP).
Courses are available in the various project management methodologies such as:
• PRINCE2 – a structured methodology, commonly used for end-to-end project management. Courses are available at foundation, practitioner and agile level. Foundation courses are suitable for new recruits with a basic knowledge of project management processes. You’ll then progress to practitioner level, which is aimed at working professionals.
• AGILE is suited to fast-moving environments such as IT. Agile methodology uses short development cycles called sprints to focus on continuous improvement in the development of a product. Training is available at foundation and practitioner level.
Getting qualified in Agile Project Management is your first step towards a rewarding career in Agile Project Management. Gaining permanent employment as a junior Agile Project Manager will build on your knowledge gained in your certification course and provide you with valuable experience to add to your project portfolio.
The types of industry sector that use these skills are many and varied and you can either specialise in a particular industry or you can work across several sectors to give you breadth of knowledge and experience.
Once you have the necessary experience, you can apply for Agile Project Management roles, where you can expect to earn upwards of £40K. Once you have a few years’ experience at this level, you can progress to Senior Project Management roles and a salary of around £60K.
