Project Management Training Workshops

Why listen when you can “do”?  Don’t just sit in class bored - engage in an interactive workshop and project simulation that challenges participants to apply and learn project management tools, techniques and concepts. The project management simulation workshop is a realistic, hands-on experience in learning, applying, practicing and developing project management skills.  Fissure has been helping corporations and individuals improve their project management skills since 1989. Our workshops, featuring Simulation Powered Learning®, have been instrumental in helping project managers gain the confidence and competency to apply their new skills on the job.

"I sent approximately 100 of my Technical Escalation Engineers through the Fissure Advanced Project Management Simulation. The participant feedback was fantastic! The learning's were very eye opening and apply both today and in the long term of their careers."
