“This is a great program and I am learning a lot during the courses of the project management certificate. I am constantly learning things to take back and apply to work. This instructor’s presentation methods really evoked thought in a way that is conducive to my learning. He went at a good pace, set expectations well, and appropriately explained the course materials. I really like his “Table Boss” concept that allowed us to take turns being the project manager for the table. It taught me a lot how I work and may be perceived by others. This is not something I get “on the job” because our projects typically only have one project manager and I am not involved in other projects.”
