AFA, an accredited project management, consultancy and training provider, has joined forces with Pitman Training Scotland to deliver accredited PRINCE2™ training.
Stuart Flatt, AFA training manager, said: 'This partnership is an exciting new venture for AFA that will promote our courses and PRINCE2™ in Scotland to a wider audience.
'Pitman Training Scotland is a prestigious brand and one of the UKs biggest training providers and we are delighted to be working with them. They have forged an excellent reputation for high-quality learning over the last 100 years and we look forward to working with them for another 100.'
PRINCE2™ is a process-based approach to project management that can be adapted to suit the project's size, complexity and the skills within the organisation.
Each process is defined with key inputs and outputs and specific objectives to achieve - and activities to carry out. Project planning using PRINCE2™ is product-based and is focused on delivering results.
Pitman Training Scotland offers classroom and distance learning courses in personal and management development, office skills as well as IT-based technical courses.
Offering PRINCE2™ will further enhance the company's ability to provide customers with a complete training package to suit their needs.
Leone Shaw Tulloch, Pitman Training Scotland's sales manager,' said: 'We are excited to be working with AFA and to be adding PRINCE2™ to our portfolio.
'We believe that offering PRINCE2™ perfectly complements our range of management development solutions. We look forward to developing our relationship with AFA and to providing this excellent training methodology to all our customers.'
Pitman Training Scotland will offer a full selection of PRINCE2™ training courses including PRINCE2™ Overview; PRINCE2™ Foundation; PRINCE2™ Practitioner; PRINCE2™ Re-registration and tailored in-house courses.
The latest AFA dates for PRINCE2™ training courses in Scotland and other locations, including Norwich, Cambridge, London, Peterborough, Ipswich, Preston and Belfast are available at http://www.afaprojects.com
AFA's UK head office is in Norfolk. AFA delivers scheduled courses throughout the UK and provides in-house courses and consultancy for public and private clients globally.
'Unlike some training organisations that deliver a range of unrelated topics, AFA only delivers training associated with the Office of Government Commerce's (OGC) management methodologies,' says Stuart Flatt. 'This ensures that we are experts in our field.'
AFA remains at the forefront of best practice. 'Our consultants are involved in writing key books such as Tailoring PRINCE2™, contribute to all major updates of manuals and sit on review and exam panels,' says Stuart Flatt.
AFA clients include utility and telecoms companies, central and local government departments, hospital trusts and police forces.
