There are plenty of good courses. I guess the question you should ask is what interests you and what kind of project would you like to work on. Also, today, agile is everywhere as you have your PMP already, you can head towards it. PMI offers different certifications which will help you. I am planning fr my PMP this November. I hope to clear it my first attempt.
It's great that your company has a training budget for you. Many PMs seek to differentiate themselves by gaining more certifications. However, to move to the next level beyond a PM, what's more important is leadership and soft skills. What are you doing to develop your leadership / soft skills?
I was looking into it myself.
Basically my answer was, outside of non-project management things like SQL and BI tools; the best options for me as someone persuing project management in technical and service delivery fields.
Certified Scrum Master.
ITIL4 - Foundation, then follow up with more in the future.
My reasoning, these course are short 1 week and I could accomplish in work regulated study leave.
As most people agree on though, depends on what interests you or is going to be valuable in your life.
I would recommend a introspection on what you like and what do you want to achieve in career over next 3-5 years. Those insights will help you derive your learning needs to plan..
In general context, I would suggest learning about Agile, Sixsigma concepts which helps focus more on customer focused delivery approach..
A year after asking this question I would say that you can choose to deepen your knowledge in:
- Artificial intelligence
- Augmented Reality
- Virtual reality
- 3D printing
- IoT (Internet of Things)
- Quantum Computing
- Human Augmentation
All knowledge that strengthens the skills in our profession is excellent. I can advise you to take a program manager, portfolio manager, or -ACP- PMI course.
