The presenter was engaging and kept us interacting with questions. The material was easy enough to follow, with relevant slides included. The class was small which allowed us each to ask questions and voice our thoughts without feeling intimidated and struggling to get a word in. Overall, I would recommend this course to anyone working in large teams in a commercial environment.

I have now taken the intro to project management & the Certified Project Management Diploma and really enjoyed both courses. Working in the NGO sector I believe all senior managers should have a grounding in PM & I will be recommending this qualification & provider to the managers I support.
