Why us?

At PCI, we understand the pressures faced by Project Controls teams because we work with them, we lead them, and we consult on them. We have helped a range of Governmental and regulatory bodies draft the national standards and certifications that stand for excellence worldwide.

As world experts in Project Controls and Project Management, we are pioneering change in the sector.

Our Vision

Project Controls is a fast-growing discipline that offers real opportunities for a fulfilling and successful career. But up until now, the industry has struggled to validate the opportunities for long-term, senior-level career growth and transferable expertise across an international workforce.

Firstly, organizations have had to rely on their own internal training courses, specific to an employer’s needs and requirements. Since these are rarely recognized by external bodies, these qualifications lose value when highly skilled individuals move between companies.

Time and resource are often an issue too. Releasing staff for lengthy educational training opportunities is often not an option. And, what’s more, even with that additional training it can be a challenging leap from theory to practical operations.

We want to change that.

As leaders in the field, we want to ensure that our industry is attracting the best and brightest candidates.

With decades of experience, we launched PCI – a unique, fast-track learning portal to equip individuals and organizations with the tools they need to succeed in Project Controls and Project Management.
