MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Aug. 7, 2012) - SIRIUS Conseils, a company with a high level of expertise in project management, announces a new partnership with SOFTEAM SA. Renowned worldwide for its expertise, this French company offers engineering services, as well as consulting services for information technologies and training services. The partners will collaborate closely to market and deliver SIRIUS CONSEILS's intensive and accelerated ("boot camp" style) training program in France to prepare participants for PMP certification. Those who achieve PMP status are internationally recognized for their professional status and for having mastered all aspects of project management.
According to the agreement, SOFTEAM will promote the training and manage the logistics of dispensing the courses. The French company also pledges to exclusively use the resources provided by their partner to deliver the training. In return, SIRIUS is responsible for designing and updating these programs. Widely recognized across North America, PMP certification is now quickly spreading throughout the world. SIRIUS, which has an office in Paris, and SOFTEAM are the first to offer such training in France.
"The training required for PMP status is a natural extension of the services we already offer French companies," explained Benoît Godbout, President, SIRIUS Conseils. "This partnership will enable us to reinforce our position in France, which is a rapidly expanding market, thanks to the growing emphasis that the French business community is placing on project management and to the quick rise of PMP certification in general."
Excited to be the first to offer this important training in France, SOFTEAM SA's Training Director, Laurent Fourmy stated, "By combining our expertise with that of SIRIUS, we will be better equipped to help French companies manage their projects in a more optimal fashion and consequently, improve their competitiveness."
The collaboration between the two companies begins as of today.
