Very informative. Did not realize there was more in order to get the certificate. Need to be more transparent with the actual course agenda and allow for a less controlled way to get thru the courses.

I'm thrilled, and I can't wait to start with the second phase. All those concepts made me more and more interested on the subject since day 1. I wonder why I didn't start before. And the course is well realized, subjects clearly explained, interesting small videos from real people involved in the job. Wow !

Learning Foundations of Project Management on Google was the best step I took. Google provides clear and detailed course materials which are easy to understand. Gives room for discussions and interaction with learners and tutors. Also provides other resources to add learning and access job opportunities.

I loved how this course didn't let me cut corners. It gave me all the information I needed to know and made sure I knew the information.

Very useful information for people who want to understand what/how project-management works but for people who also want to understand what it means to be a project-manager AND how to get a job in the field. Entry-level broad course, very good for people like myself who knew little to nothing about PM.

I really enjoyed the content and how they make it to the point so we can focus on what really matters. Not only that, but they also make some fast quizzes where we can double check if we did get all concepts correctly. I also enjoyed the past experience sharing and how some people got to a PM position.

A great course for those who are stepping into the world of Project Management.

It will take you through all the fundamentals of Project Management in an easy to understand, non-overwhelming manner. Google has done a fantastic job in presenting information to keep you engaged and wanting to learn more.

Excellent course! I recommended it to a friend in PM. I learned so much about the terminology and approaches and methodologies. I ended up landing my dream job because I applied what I learned in a case study to a presentation I had for an interview. I did a great job because of those tips! Thank you!
