Government Training

PMD Africa and TwentyEighty also specialises in solutions for the public and Government sector.  We believe that government project management courses alone is not enough.

To meet public demand for better and more services amid a budget squeeze, government agencies need three things:

  • An integrated team approach
  • People with state-of-the-art knowledge and skills
  • A work environment that lets people improve how they work

PMD Africa and TwentyEighty has helped clients fulfill all three needs by never losing sight of the desired outcomes.
