Project Cycle Management
course will teach you how to effectively manage a project from start to finish. It is based on the Project Cycle Management (PCM) workshop that Medical Teams International staff developed and held at our headquarters in early 2006. That first class had 30 participants including visiting field staff. Over the next two years, the PCM Workshop was offered four more times in the field. A total of 100 Medical Teams International staff and partners have completed the PCM course. The purpose of the online version is to give more staff around the world the opportunity to learn basic skills and knowledge about project cycle management, as well as to provide previous participants a refresher resource.
