Government and enterprise level organisations conducting large mining, resources and infrastructure projects in Queensland are increasingly seeking specialised project management training according to global training specialist ILX Group.
“As Queensland companies engage in major infrastructure projects associated with mining and construction they are realising that to ensure the success of such projects, the staff managing them need to be fully equipped with the latest best practice training methodologies,” said Michelle Phillips, ILX Group country manager for Australia and New Zealand.
ILX has started working with major clients such as the Queensland Government’s Department of Public Works—Project Services, Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency, Queensland Building Services Authority, and BRT Australia as well as companies involved with the mining, resources and construction industries to deliver specialised project management training.
“Experience in managing departments or organisations alone does not necessarily equate to successful project management; this can be overcome by implementing specific project or program focused learning,” said Phillips.
She noted that alternatives to the traditional classroom such as e-learning, blended learning, social learning and mobile learning are in demand, particularly with organisations with staff in rural, regional and remote locations.
“Employees are now considerably more receptive to such technology-based learning than ever in the past. It is therefore understandable that organisations driving developments in states such as Queensland would turn to such forms of learning to help ensure relevance and successful outcomes,” Phillips said.
Popular qualifications include PRINCE2, MSP, ITIL P3O and MoP.
