A project officer isn't a project manager. Get some clarification around the job description first, because depending on field, company, size of team etc the type of work are also different.

Well my workplace's role description is:
A project officer is an officer who works on projects, they are supervised by senior project officers who oversee the officers working on projects as well as project officers.

I know I found that so exceptionally helpful when I was trying to find out what the role involved.

I'm interested in knowing more about it too OP.

It might vary depending on the industry, but the project officers where I work are basically administrators. They store information, like training/licence records and site authorisations, book travel and accommodation, fill in mobilisation information for sites so that they know who is going to be where and when, I assume they book equipment hire and transport if required.... In my small department, all of this is done by an admin coordinator, but when she went off sick for an extended period, one of the project officers from another department helped out.

Thanks I know they're not the same, which is why I asked about that course. And 'getting some clarification' is obviously what I tried to do here.
There's no need whatsoever to speak to me like that. Your post could not be less helpful.
