PPI returned this month to Canberra, the Australian national capital, with our flagship Systems Engineering course, the first delivery of many in response to changes in the structure and priorities of the public sector. Requirements and military capability development will also be emphasised in this program to contribute to improved outcomes from public sector expenditure.
Software Engineering 5 – Day Training Course Launch
PPI is excited to announce the launch of a major update to our Software Development 5-Day Course, the course having been through several months of intense redevelopment, verification and validation to reflect the best in software development, today and beyond. The many longstanding and new PPI clients who have been waiting for this release may now build public course dates into their training schedules, or seek the training on-site with committed dates. Created by software development experts, the course examines the many elements that contribute towards success in software-intensive projects, not just in the areas of software development methodologies and languages, requirements, architecture, detailed design, coding, integration and test, but across all aspects of the software life cycle.
The course also embraces the organizational and cultural aspects of successful software development. This 5-day course in software engineering provides understanding of the elements for the effective realization of software-intensive systems that are cost-effective, on schedule and meet stakeholder requirements and needs over the full life cycle, whilst managing the inevitable risk. Please contact the PPI team for further information about having this course presented on-site to your organisation.
Being copied is a compliment, except when it is criminal
PPI has become aware that its course descriptions and courseware, created by PPI at a seven figure cost to PPI, have been illegally copied and used by training companies in the United States, the Netherlands and the United Arab Emirates. We are sure that you, the reader, will share our disgust at the immorality displayed by these organisations. Regarding the illegality, of course we are taking action. We will share news with you, including the names of these organisations, at the appropriate times. In the meantime, if you have information on these illegal practices that you can share with us, we would love to hear from you, in confidence of course. If you, as an individual, have taken one of these illegally delivered training courses, we would be pleased to exchange your illegal courseware for a set of legal PPI courseware together with a complimentary attendance at one of PPI’s training courses at any location worldwide. If you as a company have taken one of these illegally delivered training courses on-site, we would like to work with you to establish circumstances under which you can legally hold and use the course materials. In this context, we will be seeking information from you. Please note that, in most jurisdictions, it is illegal to hold counterfeit materials in violation of intellectual property law. If you hold such materials in which PPI owns copyright, but would prefer not to work with us on this matter, you as an individual or as a company are instructed to destroy such materials immediately to avoid yourselves becoming the subject of the action that PPI is taking.
