Our instructor did a great job

| 01/04/2016 12:00

This was a well-designed, well implemented MS Project training course. The material was easy to follow and understand… and our instructor did a great job in leading us through the course material with us following along on our own computers trying out the theory just learned. He was also great at answering our many questions real-time and/or offering his advice when asked. The option to attend this class remotely was a huge benefit to both myself and my company. Thank you for creating and making this course available to us… I will definitely take additional EPMA courses.
