    very informative


    The class was very thorough and informative. The only thing I can say that could be improved is they could add subtitles. The accent that Hans has made it sometimes difficult to understand the words he was saying.

    Project Management Foundation Course


    This course was well laid out and provided a good overview of the life of a well managed project and the roles and responsibilities of all players. The instructor was clear, giving examples to make the points more understandable.
    Worth taking for anyone thinking of taking PM as a career or just for better understanding of the process.
