    Review on Event Planner Course
    This is a decent course for those who want to review the basics on how to become an event planner. It definitely goes over the necessary and relevant lectures needed to be an efficient and effective planner. The course is not necessarily geared to a specific area of event planning, which is great for anyone interested but may not be appropriate for those with specific roles or niches in mind. Overall, relevant information, tools, tangible guides, and comprehensive lectures for this course. Also, a great value in price.
