    Project Management for Team Members 3 days

    This course will provide the basic knowledge and skills required to successfully participate in an oil and gas project.  This awareness course is designed to provide attendees with an introduction to the concepts of project management.  As such, this course will provide a good basis for any person seeking future career advancement as a Team Lead or Project Manager.  It will also establish a common language, thus facilitating moves across segments or departments.

    The case studies for applying the project management methodology will use oil and gas examples and can be tailored (for an additional fee) to the specific needs of a customer.  It will start with correctly defining the project, including scope and requirements, then to planning, implementing the plan, and finally, closing out the project.

    The course follows the guidelines established by the Project Management Institute and their Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide), 6th Edition.  It will utilize a combination of teaching components to ensure participants absorb both the theory and the practical application of the topics.  This will include instructor led sessions, group discussions, exercises and templates, and practical application of the concepts.

    Although this is an awareness level course, this course does qualify for 16 PDUs by the Project Management Institute (PMI) ®.
