Good News, Sad News

Dear members,

It is with a sense of achievement that we write this newsletter- at PP and the Guild Towers things are going to change… Forever   Why?


The GOOD News

The Guild has entered into an agreement with the LARGEST training company on the planet.

What does this mean to everyone in Project Controls?

At long last the ability for all to train and attain the standards we all know are required for our profession and the ability to certify those that can already prove their worth according to the GPC CAR

Most importantly your section or division head can see with a world class training partner these certifications mean…

  • Greater teamwork - with global coverage we can all work to similar standards - use the CAR to review them!
  • Transformed efficiency
  • More profit
  • Less disputes between delivery partners
  • Roles all defined - improved management effectiveness

All this and a Comprehensive Guild Support / Sponsor Package - contact for more info! We are offering benefits that are unique...

Remember the Guild is a global initiative across all disciplines in project controls and all levels of competence.

For you the project controls practitioner it means an endorsed career path and a global recognition criteriaanywhere in the world pan-industry.
