It was a very well run course for myself who had not knowledge of project management. I came away with an understanding of what it was all about.
Allan was a very good trainer and explained everything very clearly with patience and time for everyone. The size of the group was good as this allowed time for everyone. I enjoyed this course very much – thank you!
I found this course to be extremely useful & informative & thoroughly enjoyable. It is exactly what I was looking in terms of learning about projects
