Authorized Training Partner





We are pleased to partner with Procept Associates LTD and Laurentian University: Goodman School of Mines to deliver this training program.


The Northwestern Ontario Innovation Centre is partnering with Procept Associates to deliver a comprehensive project management curriculum in 2022-23. This is an outstanding opportunity for project-focused organizations to build their talent base, for future Project Manager’s on the road to their PMP, or for existing PMs to maintain their certifications. The below courses are offered to participants as individual courses as the Certificate program is no longer accepting registrations this year. Registrants may have the option to use their completed courses toward our Certificate program in the future, pending future course offerings and partner agreements.
