Accreditation is not always necessary

I was interested to read the letter concerning the construction project management format at the University of Reading (AJ 26.2.98).

The project management course devised especially for practising architects by the Royal Society of Ulster Architects, in conjunction with the Queen's University of Belfast, early in 1996, consists of 10 full days plus coursework spaced at about two-weekly intervals with an examination and interview leading to the award of a certificate, with a further dissertation leading to the RSUA Diploma in Project Management. Each time it is run it is fully subscribed.

As a matter of interest it is not continued fron page 25 accredited by the APM and I cannot see why such accreditation should be thought necessary. Project management as properly practised in a construction context is, of course, a somewhat different thing to what is practised in, say, manufacturing industry.
