The Applied Project Management and Project Management Fundamentals courses shares the same curriculum. However, the Project Management Fundamentals Course is a 2 day course and the Applied Project Management is a 3 day course. In the Applied Project Management course the exact same course material is presented as in the Project Management Fundamentals but a complete project from start to finish is also done in conjunction with project management software. In other words. In Project Management Fundamentals all the theory is presented but in the Applied Project Management it is also put into practice.
If you have had exposure to project management, been involved with project phases, documentation, project management software and project processes but have never done a formal course or if you want to increase your project knowledge the Project Management Fundamentals is the ideal course.
For the person that have had none or previous experience in project management but want to gain the necessary tools and techniques and who want to increase their knowledge of managing a project from start to finish, then the Applied Project Management course would be the correct choice.
The 2 day Advanced Project Management course is intended for the person that has attended either of the Applied or Project Fundamental course or is familiar with the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) and have done a course on this subject matter. It follows the same curriculum but certain advance aspects that was not focused on in the Applied or Fundamental course, such as: project metrics calculations, data charting, quantitive risk management, earned value management & project projections, are focused on. If you intend to do the CAPM or PMP Certification it is advised to do this course as preparation for the exam.
