  1. PMP® Solution 143.

    Training includes all activities designed to enhance the competencies of the project team members. Examples of training methods include classroom, online, computer-based, on-the-job training from another project team member, mentoring, and coaching. If project team members lack the necessary management or technical skills, such skills can be developed as part of the project work. Scheduled training takes place as stated in the re-source management plan. Training costs could be included in the project budget or supported by the per-forming organization if the added skills may be useful for future projects. In this case, you believe the added skills will not be useful for future projects, therefore right answer is A. [PMBOK 6th edition, Page 342] [Project Resource Management]


  2. B- Being from the client company, I would not ask my customer to pay for the training costs of my employees. Either the performing organization (client) or the trainee bears the training costs.

  3. A. training cost should be part of the project cost cos its only useful for that specific project

  4. Agree to option A. The training is useful only for the current project. Its not useful for the future projects. . So it should be added with Project cost
