About the Level 4 Advanced Project Management Certificate

This advanced project management course is one step up from our beginners’ project management course. This means that the materials offer a more challenging and in depth view into the world of project management. Students enrolling on this course can expect to expand on their previous knowledge of this topic and become successful and efficient leaders.

During the course of their project management training with Stonebridge College, students will complete five informative modules. These online units aim to teach students all they need to know about topics including: project planning, finances and resources, quality and risk, and people and communications.

Who should study this course?

This project management certification has been specifically designed for individuals who have already completed our project management course and want to further their understanding. It is also suitable for those who have some lived experience of project management who want to improve their practice.

Students do not need any formal qualifications or proven experience before enrolling on this home learning course. All we ask is that they have an interest in the topic, a way to access our home study materials and the motivation to engage in independent study.

What happens after the course?

On successful completion of this distance learning qualification, students will have gained an in depth understanding of project management and the skills involved in this career. Students will be able to take these skills, and channel them into future job roles.

Even if our graduates do not become project managers, there are plenty of areas in which these skills will come in handy. Professions which are related to this advance project management course include, but are not limited to:

  • Project manager
  • Team manager
  • Manager

This means that Stonebridge Associated Colleges have undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet certain quality criteria.

The unit summary can be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this sector. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 4 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of difficulty involved in successful completion by the learner.

The course itself has been designed by Stonebridge Associated Colleges to meet specific learners’ or employers’ requirements. ABC Awards’ endorsement involves a robust and rigorous quality audit by external inspectors to ensure quality is consistently met.

Professional Membership

On completion of this course you will be eligible to join the following Professional Associations(s):

Anyone who is studying for or has completed a course endorsed by an Ofqual approved awarding body is eligible to join Qualifications Register.  The Qualifications Register (QR) is an independent register that aims to serve both members of the public and those professionals who hold recognised qualifications.

QR's primary aim is to provide transparency to members of the public and employers. The QR is a searchable database that allows them to find a practitioner and view the relevant qualification and endorsements the practitioner holds. The member of the public is then able to make an informed decision in relation to the suitability of the practitioner.  QR also tracks whether practitioners have insurance, again something that is useful for members of the public.  QR can also help professionals gain insurance or find professional indemnity cover.  Click here to find out more.

Members of the public can check an independent source with complete confidence that the practitioner has the qualification(s) they claim to have and that any additional CPD the practitioner has, is verified and quality assured to make sure that the CPD is being done on a regular basis. QR tracks a practitioners endorsed CPD (in unison with our CPD accreditation partner Lifetime Awarding) and other key signals to help members of the public and employers to come to a more informed decision about the professional they intend to use. This is an enormously valuable signal that's increasingly important as business becomes more deregulated and privatised.

For practitioners QR helps you market your skills, endorsements and feedback transparently to a wider audience. It also gives you access to a community to help make you more able to progress and succeed in your field of expertise.  Click here to find out more.
