Project Management Professionals (PMPs) are in strong demand here in Nigeria and the world at large, but a gap still exists in the number of professionals fully prepared to lead and manage projects. This in turn has lead to an increase in the number of project management (PM) training centers in Nigeria, most especially in Lagos State.As the number of PM training centers continue to increase in the country which is a healthy factor for our industries, so also will be competition between them. Some will rise much faster than their counterparts, based on the choices they make. These choices involve their project management foundations, the ways they train their students, how much they develop talents within the organization, their priorities and staffing decisions, the quality and experience of their trainers, and the support they receive from their sponsors. So I would advise anyone planning to undergo a PM training to perform a little research before registering with any of the PMOs or PMIs in the country.
In no specific order, listed below are some of the PM training centers operating here in Nigeria and what they say about themselves as extracted from their individual websites:
