"I've taken pm training before and it was very dry and I did not enjoy it. This class was very engaging and I am leaving with very good resources to practice pm at work." 

"The professor was very knowledgeable and the environment of the class was great."

"The Tenants of Project Management class was exactly what I was looking for. I am involved in projects, but I am a Tech Support Technician that is doing the work tasks to move the project along. It was great to learn more about the management side of things. The pace & format of the class was great, the content was grouped together to make the most sense and there was time for any questions you come up with throughout the class." - Ben Blankenship - Technical Support Technician
