Project Assurance Practitioner Training Course2024-02-14T09:18:08+00:00

The 2-day Wellingtone Project Assurance Practitioner training course provides a comprehensive and practical view of the strategies, competencies required, and tools and techniques available to design, set up and deliver effective and integrated project assurance in organisations. The course emphasises an approach of ‘learning by doing’, which sees delegates using a case study from end-to-end, enabling the doing of the right projects in the right way, and allowing opportunities to develop certain key soft skills relevant to Project Assurance Practitioners, such as giving and receiving feedback.

Project assurance provides confidence to stakeholders that projects in the portfolio will achieve their scope, time, cost and quality objectives, and realise their benefits. This course has been authored by Wellingtone with contributions from leading Assurance practitioners across industry and provides delegates with the knowledge to implement Integrated Project Assurance.
