thank you very much for giving me the opportunity to enroll this Google project management certification. But, I am not able to pay for the program because I have no money even to sustain myself. Why

It is very interesting, insightful and made in a way that anyone can understand. I like the way of presentations, guided with the transcriptions; summarized in reading materials and people sharing real life experience on the issues discussed.

A comprehensive introduction to Project Management. It helps you evaluate your interests in the profession and where you currently stand in your career as a PM. Highly recommended if you want to 'formalise' your project management experience.

I took this course to help me articulate, get the ability to better explain what I really do. I am not a tech PM, however project management is part of pretty much everyone's life. This is a great introduction to PM and I really recommend it.

This course was great at teaching you the basics of Project Management, but also goes over many methodologies, organizational structures in the workforce, and how to present yourself on your resume. Great start to the program. Learned a lot!
