P3O® Certification

P3O® Portfolio, Programme and Project Offices

Course Summary

HiLogic is an Accredited P3O® – Portfolio, Programme & Project Office Training Organisation offering P3O certification and training courses in Melbourne and Perth. Sometimes referred to as the portfolio office or programme office or project office, P3O® derives its name from these three office types. The P3O standard aims to minimise the current confusion between the purpose and scope of these offices by providing definitions, structure, processes and roles for the establishment and management of the many possible P3O models. We offer accredited P3O certification courses in Melbourne and Perth.

Training Model

The aim of a P3O training model is to provide the appropriate support and governance required for the management of an organisation’s change initiatives. Our portfolio, programme and project office (PMO) training and certification courses are based on the P3O training guide and include a 2.5 day P3O Foundation training course and 1.5 day P3O Practitioner training course.

Foundation Training and Certification

The aim of the P3O Foundation training is to provide a sound understanding of:

  • The difference between portfolio, programme and project management
  • How to determine the best P3O model: portfolio, programme or project office for a given business environment
  • Steps to implement or re-energise a P3O model
  • Success criteria for the management of a P3O model
  • P3O models, principles, tools, techniques, functions and roles

The P3O Foundation certification exam is completed online following the training by choosing from available dates and times. It is a closed book, 75 questions multiple-choice exam. The certification exam must be completed within 60 minutes and delegates must score 35 or more marks to attain certification. Please note; 5 questions are trial questions and do not contribute to the final mark.

Practitioner Training and Certification

The aim of the P3O Practitioner training is to refine and build on knowledge gained during the Foundation program and prepare the delegate for the P3O Practitioner certification exam. Further, the training will develop the delegate’s ability to apply P3O principles, functions, tools and techniques and to design and manage a portfolio, programme or project office for a given business situation.
