This training is not what I expected. I am happy that I enrolled for this training and very satisfied of my experienced with this class. This class is not intimidating. Let me start with the instructor - the instructor was very engaging. He provided a lot of case studies, actual scenarios, and exercises that created an excellent dynamic workshop amongst the participants. He tied some of his professional experiences that provided us a better understanding of how different practices were done in the past prior to the concept of offering Project Management Training to professionals.This class is not geared towards one level. Whether you are a beginner or in the advance stage of your career in project management, this class breaks down the different stages of project management and how it applies to each professional who manages or involve in any team project. It is an excellent review for those who are in their advance level as well as for those who are just starting to learn the steps.The training material is an added bonus and easy to follow. I highly recommend this training to professionals who want to brush up with their techniques and for those who intend to develop their technical skills.

The instructor was very good. I felt that each day moved at a good pace as he was able to switch things up here and there as we went along. I felt very engaged, and that the subject matter was on point with what I needed to learn. I would highly recommend this course and would certainly enjoy another training with this instructor.
