What Participants Have Said

“I have recently been promoted to a Project Manager within the company. I have no previous experience and needed some guidance and confidence. I really enjoyed the whole course. The instructor, Rhys, was great and didn’t make the course boring and the team exercises were fun and relative. It was a good overview of project management, and I took a lot away from it.”
