It  provides an in-depth coverage of project management knowledge, processes, tools and techniques through  lecture, small group case studies and discussions.

Training Methodology

Simlau Biztech Academy endeavors to ensure that delegates undergoing the training are prepared enough for international exams by the time they finish the course. This is made possible through our training methodology anchored on the 'Learning by Doing' philosophy. The 'Doing' part is concerned with real life projects instead of hypothetical projects that some training organizations most often rely on.

We also facilitate and endorse the CAPM certification registration process for our delegates. It is worth noting that endorsement for registration by a Registered Project Management Training Provider is a strict requirement for the PMI International exams.

At Simlau Biztech Academy our intention is to groom our students as much as possible with sufficient practical skills and knowledge for the achievement of our target result of 100 percent in exam certification.
