As organisations struggle to address the challenges of increasing technological complexity, Project Management has become crucial to deliver projects on time, within budget and of acceptable quality.


CompTIA's Project+ offers a globally recognized Certificate in project management. The CompTIA Project+ certification validates the communication and business skills needed to lead projects with confidence. It provides the project manager with the skills to manage projects across the entire project cycle from initiation, planning, execution, monitoring and closure.


This course is classroom based and presents the syllabus as given by CompTIA Project+ and adheres to the PMI-PMP standard. Originally known as IT Project+ and aimed only towards IT project managers, CompTIA has since renamed and broadened the scope of this certification to encompass project managers beyond the IT field and is now equally useful for all types of project managers and project management issues.
