Leading Training Provider Launches Green Project Management Qualification Scheme for UK Businesses
One of the UK’s leading project management training providers has announced it has joined forces with American firm GPM to deliver a groundbreaking new Green Project Management Training and Qualification Scheme in the UK.
Training ByteSize will offer GPM’s PRiSM courses, which focus on the practical application of sustainable project management practices. The course is designed to help students practice a new style of sustainable project management, integrating sustainability considerations with project management applications. It is thought to be the first collaborative project of its kind, with a stated aim of introducing sustainability elements to a wider audience within the discipline.
Martyn Kinch, Managing Director of Training ByteSize, says, “We are thrilled to be offering the PRiSM courses in association with GPM. Sustainability is the buzzword of the decade, and we understand that companies around the country and increasingly more aware of their responsibilities in this field and keen integrate sustainability with project management. The PRiSM courses assist them in doing just that. We look forward to helping clients bridge the gap between corporate social responsibility and effective project management.”
The President of GPM, Joel Carboni, said, “The UK is home to many great sustainability initiatives and continues to raise the bar for project management, with the APM and APMG setting the standard. Training ByteSize will play a key role in shaping the future of sustainability in project management, and we are proud to partner with them.”
Training ByteSize is a recognised project management training specialist, and the largest online provider of multi-lingual project management training courses in Europe. Their accredited and bespoke training solutions have assisted in the training of thousands of project management teams to date, and the addition of the sustainable PRiSM courses to the rostra will further enhance their reputation as the best in the business.
Sustainability is defined by the World Bank as ‘the ability of a project to maintain an acceptable level of benefit flows through its economic life’. This definition is the key to the new courses offered by Training ByteSize and GPM, which will be actively encouraging more UK workplaces to implement green project management into their everyday operations.
There will be a range of different qualifications available, including the Certified Green Project Manager-b (GPM-b) course, which will be a foundational knowledge-based credential, created to embody the commitment to maximizing sustainability. Those who achieve GPM-b status will act as agents of change in their respective organisations, managing and directing the efforts deliver goods and service in a sustainable way. The certification will be the first project management credential for individuals delivering projects using approved sustainable methods. Candidates must have experience managing projects and sufficient knowledge to realize sustainable outcomes at work.
