DDLS Enters Agreement with PMIWA

DDLS enters agreement with the Project Management Institute Western Australian Chapter (PMI WA) to grow the Project Management profession.


With over 640 Project Management jobs currently being advertised on Seek in Perth, it’s obvious that highly qualified project managers are in demand. This is at a time when many organisations on the Terrace are continuing to cut back.

Good news if you are wanting to upgrade your skills and expertise or change career into the project management space.

DDLS and the Project Management Institute Western Australian Chapter (PMI WA) are delighted to announce their partnership agreement, which will allow all PMI members significant discount on selected courses at DDLS.

If you are a PMI WA member, you can get up to 25% off DDLS PMBOK Advanced, PMBOK Foundation and PMBOK Overview courses, including the Project Management Professional (PMP)® and Certified Associate In Project Management (CAPM)® Exam Preparation programs.

The agreement was reached after several months of negotiation in order to maximise benefits to both the customers of DDLS and the members of PMI WA.

President of PMI WA, Cole Vindevoghel, said "I am particularly delighted as this agreement represents the close working relationship between the PMI WA Chapter and DDLS, which will directly benefit our members looking to achieve certification and support our community of education providers within Western Australia"

“It’s a great opportunity not only for our members of the PMI WA Chapter, but also for DDLS to support the Project Management community in Western Australia.”

As the leading IT and Project Management training provider in Australia, DDLS provides workshops which build immediately usable knowledge and skills from foundation level courses to applying advanced project management, risk management, agile development, change management and CAPM®/PMP® exam preparation.

Julianne Sparke, WA State Manager for DDLS said : “We are delighted to partner with PMI in WA. DDLS has seen accelerated adoption over the last 12 months in project management training and certification.”

“DDLS established a Project Consulting Practice in early 2015 that has already seen significant growth where DDLS have placed PM's on site with a range of corporate and government organisations. This partnership amplifies the synergies that exist between DDLS and PMI.” said Ms Sparke.
