! PM² TRAINING & CERTIFICATION
Training on the PM² Methodology and PM² Essentials Exam Voucher
European Academy as an Accredited Training Provider (ATP) for the PM² Alliance, has secured the ability to offer exam vouchers for the PM² Certification tests.
To celebrate this, we offer to everyone completing any of our PM² courses between 1st of June and 30 of December 2019, a complimentary exam voucher for the PM² Essentials Certification. (Participants will also continue receiving the Certification of training completion)
Since the EC took the important initiative to bring the PM² Methodology closer to its broader stakeholders and user community, understanding and implementing the PM² Methodology is essential for anyone participating or dealing with European projects.
This unique course has been designed to address the needs of organisations and people involved in international collaborative EU funded projects. Is the only course developed around the PM² Methodology of the European Commission with a strong focus on its application to Horizon 2020 projects.
The course includes all the essentials for the understanding of the EU projects environment such as the rights and obligations of EU funds beneficiaries and provides step-by-step guidance for the management of projects.
The course will equip participants with all the necessary knowledge, skills and reference sources to help them understand, tailor and effectively use the PM² Methodology for the coordination of multi-party project work, but also for the effective reporting and smooth communication with the Project Officers of the European Commission.
During this two-day training, the Critical Success Factors (CSFs) of project management will be discussed and participants will understand how PM² addresses them. With the help of workshops and exercises, at the end of the course participants will be in a position to start implementing some of the PM² best practices which will increase the quality of their project management. After the training, participants will be in a position to more successfully coordinate collaborative projects and increase their success rates by implementing PM² in their proposals.
Strictly limited seats per course ensure a much more focused learning experience and a customised programme.
ABOUT THE PM² METHODOLOGY
PM² is a Project Management Methodology custom developed by the European Commission to fit the specific needs, culture and constraints of EU Institutions.

It incorporates elements from a wide range of globally accepted project management best practices as well as European Commission’s operational experience from many projects. PM² is a light and easy to implement methodology suitable for any type of project.
