Budgeting, time frames, and resource estimatesare typically covered by project management courses. You'll learn skills for not only setting goals for achievement within a realistic budget and time, but also for reviewing and vetting costs and resource estimates.

Course 1 was a great general overview. However, there was a lot of information thrown into the PDFs that I wished were explained in the video clips more. But I'm guessing more explanations and practices will come in the following courses. Looking forward to it!

The course is very detailed and covers a whole lot of extra but vital areas to initiate your journey as a aspiring project manager. I assumed the course was for IT project manager but it covers all aspects of project management from construction to IT and all.
