2019 has been a year of growth for Wellingtone, and specifically our commitment to enabling PMOs to develop their capability.
The year leading up to the re-accreditation of the PMO Practitioner course has been our busiest ever with 22 courses of which 11 were public courses booked based on the demand for spaces.

Two years in, we have 369 certified PMO Practitioners across the world with lots more booked to follow in their footsteps.
We have also continued to establish a growing virtual community of PMO Practitioners who can support and keep in touch with their peers and Wellingtone as they continue their PMO journey.
Every course syllabus is aligned to both the Association for Project Management (APM) and Project Management Institute (PMI) Body of Knowledge 7th Edition & 6th Edition respectively. This allows us to offer a balanced view across the many facets that relate to the project management profession.
