International Institute of Projects & Program Management (i2P2M), a not for profit company, is aleader in providing project management education and certification globally. In our endeavor to build a Project Oriented India, we partner with leaders who bring value to project management. i2P2M has tied up with Microsoft Corporation, India, the global leader, to launch a 5 day National Workshop on "Totality of Project Management with specialization in Microsoft Project."

The first three days of this meticulously designed workshop will focus on covering 100 plus, must know concepts of project management. The training will be provided by Centre for Excellence in Project Management (P) Ltd. (CEPM). The third day will end with the robust and rigorous examination administered by i2P2M leading to the Certificate In Project Management (CIPM) . On the 4th & 5th day, the participants will get hands on training on MS Project Software.

15,500+ professionals from 550+ companies across 19 countries have acquired the CIPM credential. CIPM has received many applauds across the world. Dr B. Nag, Professor IIM Calcutta said, "It (CIPM) should become a pre-requisite for all PM professionals globally". The Totality of Project Management training will help participants to enhance their skills and deliver their projects within time, cost and quality parameters.

The Feedback was excellent and the participants felt that they could deploy MS Project Software much more effectively after the initial 3 day training on Totality of Project Management.
