I think this course was very informative and reviews all the necessary topics for project management. I would highly recommend this for someone who haven't yet obtained a PMP or CAPM certificate and wants to learn the foundations.

D​er Kurs ist wirklich sehr gut. Ich finde es nur SEHR SCHADE, dass das Zertifikat KEINE RICHTIGE UNTERSCHRIFT hat. Die Text Unterschrift sieht sehr sehr sehr schlecht aus. Bitte ändert das!

M​it freundlichen Grüßen

T​his course was very well designed. Dynamic video content especially compared to several other online courses I have taken. There are so many snoozers out there, and Emilio and the other presenters were animated and motivating.

I like how the job of project manager is presented so you're not just learning the tasks. I feel comfortable that I could work in this field as a career changer and there is no mystery about what it entails in the "real world"!

Amazing course. Thank you. I would also appreciate if you could explain how Waterfall, Agile and Lean methodologies differentiate from each other. There is a lot of information available online but it is still not clear for me.

The course was both engaging and thought provoking while covering topics that seem normal and obvious, yet since the course goes into more detail, it easily opens up your mind to the world of introduction of project management.

Very easy to understand lessons that are clear and to the point.

I would recommend to all. You actually learn things you can use in everyday life, not just a career. I've learned so much and will be looking forward to course 2.
