Loved this course! It is a great introduction to Project Management. There is so much information that is shared either through experiences of others or just defining the roles of a Project Manager and going over the many different terms and definitions.

This course was very well established. It broken key concepts and had some repitition to ensure the information sticks with the learner. It was easy to follow and understand. Adding the quiz after each section also helped reinforce what was just covered.

El curso es demasiado directo, práctico y bueno. Me gustó toda la información que se brinda y la forma tan sencilla y amigable en que se abarca. Solo hubo un ligero error en un cuestionario en la semana 4 que ya reporté, pero fuera de eso todo excelente.

Great course with significant and strong foundational skills. I enjoy how the course explains the importance of a strong foundation and even highlights how individuals already have a base knowledge of project management by their everyday life activities.

The course was well organized, very well thought out, and a good combination of videos, reading and hands on. I think it touched on quite a few great foundational topics that will set the stage for more in depth responsibilities that go with being a PM.

I enjoyed learning things in this course, as it shined a light on some of the things, I have done, but never knew that they were part of the fundation of being a project manager. I learn also a number of things I did not know. It was very enjoyable.
