We also provide public courses that gather managers and team members from different companies in a safe and friendly environment. VIRAK offers the well-known and successful preparation courses for the PMP® and CAPM® certifications of the Project Management Institute (PMI)®. We are PMI® Registered Education Providers.

We ensure that the course content clearly targets the needs of the participants, that they learn quickly and are ready to apply their new knowledge and self-awareness as soon as they are back in the work environment. We believe that if participants are enjoying themselves, are interacting and are actively participating, then they will be much more likely to achieve this goal.

NEW WORKSHOP: The Art of Observing

The Art of Observing in a work environment

The Art of Observing is a half-day intensive and interactive workshop that trains your visual literacy. Analyzing works of art in detail both sharpens the eye and focuses the mind in order to acquire the visual sharpness that is at the base of interpersonal communication and critical thinking. The workshop caters to those who wish to better understand and interpret the actions and reactions of conversation and negotiation partners. It also refines the analytic skills necessary for problem solving and strategic planning.
