Certificate in Project Management

The CIAPS Certificate in Project Management is a 3 months highly interactive programme aimed at people who already or intend to lead or be part of project teams.

It is a hands-on, innovative and dynamic programme which focuses on the theoretical principles and languages of project management as well as the practical applications. Learners will be exposed to case studies of best and bad practices and will identify, analyse, and use strategies, tools and techniques to deal with the responsibilities and challenges facing project participants. Learners will be able to put theory into action.

Graduates from the course will leave CIAPS with a very clear understanding of project management practices and will be able to adjust when things do not go as planned. They will be able to effectively deal with change and uncertainty. Lastly, graduates will be able to recognise good leaders and will be able to incorporate leadership skills in their project management practices.

You can choose to have your classes on weekdays (Monday to Friday) or weekends (Saturday and Sunday).

Learning and Assessment

This course will focus on an application of project management techniques appropriately balanced with project management theory. Participants in this course will be required to combine practice in real workplace situations with learning in our Centre. Each module will have a formative and summative assessment. Assessments will be written, verbal and based on observations.

There are two options for learning:

  • Classroom at the Centre
  • Distance Learning and Online


A fundamental part of learning at CIAPS relates to the exposure of learners to best practices. We strongly encourage our students to participate in international programmes which will enable them to gain a global perspective. This course is lead by a USA based project management expert and will incorporate a worldview of project management through the use of case studies, journal articles, and project briefs.


Much emphasis is placed on research, both empirical and theoretical. Our faculty members are continuously engaged in research related to the subject they teach, and we encourage students to participate alongside them. We also strongly recommend that our students create their own research topics related to their area of work or interest.
