About this Course

Duration 6 Months

Project management adds value by improving the execution of strategy through repeatable, reliable performance and standardisation.

It brings integration of resources within an organisation through the removal of silos and facilitates the implementation of improved communication and collaboration. It also reveals opportunities for efficiency, savings and improved quality through the project lifecycle.

The CTPM® program is designed to enable delegates to ensure good project management that will, in turn, help the result of the project improve its performance.

CTPM® is based upon the principles of the global standard for project management - the PMI's PMBOK® 5th Edition - and adds technical input from the wealth of knowledge contained within CNet Training's pioneering Global Data Centre Education Framework. This combination provides a unique non-generic project management course designed specifically for the real world of telecommunications design, planning and installation.

In an online environment consisting of twelve modules, the components of the five processes of project management - initiating, planning, executing, monitoring and controlling, and closing - are conveyed, while a project case study is constructed and synchronised with the course delivery. You will be assessed during and at the end of the course. There are twelve modules each with their own assessment which will take approximately 30 hours to complete in total.

Each module can be taken at leisure but all of them must be completed within the six months given.

Completion of all of the training modules makes available an end test; an on-line exam which consists of forty multiple-choice questions. The assessment may be taken at a time convenient to you, but within the overall six months time frame given.


Experience of telecommunications planning, installation and maintenance or, of working within a data centre environment.

Delegate Profile:

Suitable for those with experience of telecommunications planning, installation and maintenance within a data centre environment, the course addresses how to successfully design, develop, execute and close a project.

Delegates will learn how to

Delegates will learn how to develop a project initiating process and create, explain and execute a project planning process. They will also have the confidence to implement measures to monitor and control it and have the ability to carry out a project closing process.


Initiating Process

Its purpose is to achieve authorisation for a project and define its objectives. The general scope, duration, resources, and desired final output are described. Outputs for this process include the project charter and a preliminary SOW.

Planning Process

This process involves determining how the newly initiated project will actually be carried out, including refining the information developed during initiation and reviewing the resources needed (including human resources). Risks that may affect the project are identified and planned for. Quality and communication planning take place as well as cost management and procurement strategies. A WBS including various deliverables and work packages is constructed and scheduled activities are defined and sequenced.

Executing Process

The execution process group involves taking steps to act upon and complete the project work according to the procedures outlined during the planning stage. Any approved changes are implemented as part of this group. The project management team is acquired and developed and contact with vendors is initiated. Reports on project progress, quality, and challenges are a core component of the information distribution aspect of execution.

Monitoring & Controlling Process

These processes occur concurrently with all the other process groups. Observation, problem identification and correction are the three basic purposes of monitoring and controlling. Quality control plays a significant role in this group of processes.

Closing Process

This process finalises a project and closes it out. This activity often includes satisfying the terms of any outstanding contracts. The Project Manager must ensure that other processes (planning, execution, monitoring) are complete and the final deliverables are ready to be handed off to the end user or stakeholder group.

Post Completion:

As well as achieving the prestigious CTPM® certification delegates will also receive the Telecommunications Project Management Level 4 BTEC Professional Award.
