    Fundamentals of Project Management

    I came into this class with some experience from the job I am currently in. The instructor for this course did a good job of trying to cover overall, general project management thought-process and practices. It is helpful if you are interested in the department or want to be more familiar with the terminology.

    The teacher was really good at helping people applying their situations to project management. The class moves quickly but it time also goes by quickly. Despite my informal work exprience with project management,I felt a lot more equipped and confident about my current skills and areas to grow.

    Great class! Teacher has lots of knowledge to share and covered quite a bit in only a short amount of time. She even provided food, which was much appreciated by all! I would highly recommend to anyone looking to learn some ins and outs of Project Management.

    I liked this class. I work in higher ed, so I was not familiar with, nor do I have, any "formal" project management experience/training. The class was full of people who were in IT, different types of firms ... definitely corporate/private sector jobs. So for about a second I was concerned, but soon realized that I would benefit from the class. The instructor does move quickly, but once I was in the groove, I was able to keep up with the quick pace.

    The instructor is direct and can come off as a bit gruff, but I don't think she is actually harsh or mean. I think she is just a direct person who is task oriented .... I mean she IS teaching a project management class after all. She answered questions and stayed behind to talk to people who wanted to discuss things one-on-one with her. She is knowledgeable and I think genuinely likes teaching and helping others out. Just be prepared for a person who is ready to get the business at hand done, and less of a fuzzy, warm, hearts and rainbows type of teacher.

    A great baseline class for PM. Covered a broad range of topics with just enough detail to give me some things to look up on my own. Drinks and sandwhiches were provided as well as some resources to get started practicing some PM skills. Overall great class, would recommend to anyone looking to get a general overview of Project Management

    I really liked this seminar! I felt like it was very hands-on and structured to make sure that all of the individuals in the class got a little bit of what they came to hear. The instructor was able to frame her talking points in a bunch of different ways so that we could all understand them regardless of what our personal backgrounds were. For a subject that could be a little dry, the time went really fast. I feel like I got what I was looking for: an intro to what project management is and the framework to be able to judge what else I still need to learn.

    Fundamentals of Project Management

    I really enjoyed this class, though I think it really helped having context for the subject matter. Since I am a project manager I was familiar with the terms and concepts already, but the class gave me perspective outside of my current role and helped me re-frame how I am approaching challenges in the projects I am working on. It was also really neat to see who is interested in project management outside of my industry.
