I have said it throughout the course, the amount of information that I have acquired is incredible, I am not only PM but I am also a coordinator and I execute many tools but this was early to finally close a stage. For the next stage, work at Google.

I think that this first course is a great start for anyone that is exploring a role in project management. I also think that this first course is a way for seasoned PMs to brush up on their skills or upskill. I'm looking forward to the next course.

O curso superou minhas expectativas na questão de conteúdo e apresentação.

Mesmo sendo um curso on-line, foi bastante instigante e dinâmico, alternando entre vídeos, textos e atividades. Abordou tópicos importantes e de maneira bastante satisfatória.

So far, so good! I've learned a lot, and the content is presented in a very understandable way. Prior to this course I used to think that project management was a really difficult area to get into, even though I'd always wanted to do it.

Not anymore!

Spannende Einleitung in den Kurs, man kann sich erst mal in das gesamte Thema reinfinden. Es dauert meistens eher weniger lange als angegeben und durch die gute Abwechlung zwischen Video/ lesen/ schreiben/ Quizzes/ Aufgaben wird es nicht langweilig.

T​his course was awesome. It was much better than the books I have been reading on the subject. I spent hours in Barnes and Noble and in school struggling with this topic. Your instructors make this course fun and I am glad I purchased this course.

The course offered an overview of what it is to be a project manager, some tools to use and how, some skills I need to develop. It has already helped me in a small project I was asked to manage. I used what I learned and the result was very good.

The videos are accompanied with transcripts which makes it easier to follow. The course is easy to follow such that anyone even without experience being a project manager can understand. The practice quizzes are a great help to solidify lessons.

Very informative and loaded with information to help you carry through out your career. However, with that being said i do highly recommend you take notes through out the course so that you can refer back to for the quizs and as study material.

Best course I have ever taken (out of 20 or so). Filled with practical assignments and good examples. It is definitely a more time consuming course, but you will actually get your hands dirty with a lot of project management documents & skills.

It presents many examples that it's easier to understand or to check out my understandings. Really love the experts sharing session, really motivating. Shout out to Elita, she's really inspiring. I'm also an all list and schedule person myself.
