Great course! I would only recommend allowing the participant to review the correct answers to the quizzes in the case of incorrect answers rather than just a referral back to the training material. Thanks!

This course gives an optimum outlook to what all Project Management entails in terms of foundations. There is a scope for providing some slice of life examples which will come handy in the Capstone as well.

I have taken PM courses before and found them to be bogged down in well, dogma like terms and practices. I find this more matter of fact and more organic course less intimidating and easier to comprehend.
