    On the third day particularly in the afternoon the class was rushed through exercises. If I had not had prior MS Project experience, I think as a student, I would have been very frustrated. Given my comfort level with MS Project this pace was even fast for me on the third day.

    There is a lot of material to cover and the pace is pretty rapid to get through it.

    Really understood the software, and able to explain in-depth concepts of best practices. He was able to add some humour into the mix to keep the attention - as the content isn't the most exciting to begin with. Take a PM course first to understand basics

  • Past Participant, Denso Sales Canada, Inc Nov 21, 2019

    Facilitator kept things interesting. He managed training session really well, good flow not too fast or slow. Allowed everyone to ask questions but was conscience to keep with the time required to complete each section of the training on time. Training material (hand outs) was good for doing exercises on your own.
