What is the P3O Practitioner Course?

Gain your P3O® certification with our training courses and learn the industry best practice approach to Portfolios, Programmes and Project Offices.

P3O® (Project, Programme and Project Office) is a framework enabling businesses to set up and maintain a support structure for the delivery of change within their organisation. Provided by the global best practice provider AXELOS, P3O® links easily with other AXELOS best practice frameworks such as PRINCE2®MSP® and M_o_R® because its guidance helps to support and maintain each of the areas these frameworks cover. It helps to align these areas of interest with the business’s objectives, ensuring senior management are able to make informed decisions about how these components of the business can fit in with the overall strategy.

As a recognised and valuable Project Management qualification, the Portfolio, Programme, and Project Officers (P3O®) Practitioner Certification confirms to employers, that a candidate is capable of applying the P3O® model and could lead a P3O® project of transformational change. This P3O® Practitioner Certificate is designed for individuals that wish to elevate their applicable knowledge of the P3O® Model and its concepts - learning how to design and implement projects in accordance with the P3O® Model. Led by highly experienced and accredited instructors, the training course will consist of a mixture of practical exercises and instructor led seminar-based sessions - ensuring that candidates gain applicable and underpinning conceptual knowledge. 

Whilst providing an effective framework for repeat usage, P3O® Training is primarily designed to develop proficient Project Managers and Project Contributors that are capable of initiating and leading transformational business change. The P3O® guidance brings about a collaboration of principles, foundations, processes, and techniques to contribute and facilitate Portfolio, Programme, and Project Management - in order to provide a set framework in which to adhere to on regular basis to assure consistency and effective Project Management. The Portfolio, Programme, and Project Officers (P3O®) scheme offers guidance on optimising investment whilst not inhibiting or influencing alternative business operations - hence this course is of value for businesses utilising the P3O® Guidance and developing capable Project Managers.
