Certification Program For Sail
PMI India

In view of the recent experience of project execution in Steel Authority of India Ltd. (SAIL), the organization felt the need to train and expose its executives associated with projects to modern concepts and practices in project management through professional certification, so that they are able to handle future projects in SAIL more effectively.

This certification program, held during 8-12 May, was managed by Management Training Institute (MTI). MTI is an apex training facility based in Ranchi, that imparts training to SAIL employees across its plants and units. Twenty-three project executives nominated by senior executives from seven locations (which comprised four plants and three corporate divisions), attended the training program.

The L&T Institute of Project Management, Vadodara, which is a Registered Education Provider (R.E.P.) of PMI India, conducted the training. Karthik K. Ramamurthy, PMP, former president, PMI Chennai Chapter, provided faculty support. Raj Kalady, managing director, PMI India, addressed the participants through a live video link on the value of PMI certification and best practices to improve project outcomes.

The trainees learned about the Knowledge Areas identified in the PMBOK® Guide. Once a Knowledge Area was covered, there was an interactive session to discuss possible questions and find the “best choice” answers. The trainers also discussed the critical concepts for the PMP® examination and useful tips for taking the examination.
