Time and Priority Management Course

Time & Priority Management

Professional Development

By successfully completing this course, you will:

  • Gain skills and knowledge in Time & Priority Management to expand an existing practice, as a foundation qualification towards further studies, or for personal interest
  • Be awarded the BSY Professional Certificate of Merit

You can study this course from the comfort of your own home; in your own time and at your own pace; with helpful support and encouragement from our friendly tutors.

One must not consider time-saving techniques; instead we should focus on better ways to spend time. Effective and efficient people are those who have mastered this self-discipline. This makes time a personal asset or resource of everyone. If we pursue this line of thought, then Time Management becomes self-management, and self-management becomes life management.
