Our project managers are the beating heart of the Convergint UK Operations Team and it isn’t a role for the faint hearted! They are under continuous pressure from our customers and colleagues to deliver excellence, so it is vitally important that they are provided with the training and support to enable them to succeed with this challenge and continue to be our customers best service provider. The Tavcom Project Management Training for Security Systems is specifically tailored to our industry, and provides a specialised focus on project planning, scheduling, control techniques, risk management, change control, testing, commissioning, and management techniques customised to our specific working environment. The week-long training course was intense and challenging, especially given that it was running alongside other business and family commitments, so this is an impressive achievement and should be highly commended.”
