“After 10 years of managing a project, this is the first time I’ve actually been trained in it. I found it very useful to actually get some principles and processes for how you should best manage a project, rather than just learning as you go, and often being very inefficient.”

Dr Amy Dickman, WildCRU (University of Oxford) and Director of Ruaha Carnivore Project, Tanzania 

“It was a great value for our organization and for my professional career. I strongly encourage future young conservationists to take this course”.

Sergio Cumbula, Project manager, Lupa, Mozambique

“Great experience! It was a fun way of learning things”.

Babu Ram Lamichhane, National Trust for Nature Conservation, Nepal

    Satisfaction with Training

    This course is intense but educational and very helpful. Even if you don’t want to be in a managerial role it helps to know the different roles and how they connect to the project and organisation you may be involved in. The team is really friendly and the exam is multiple choice which is a relief. I would definitely recommend for anyone wanting to become a team leader or someone that will be dealing with lots of documents for a project.
