​Student Testimonial

​"This course was the perfect road map to help my transition from Technician to project management. The course is always patient, and always available on your time.
this course covers many topics large, small and in between, which you may not get to cover  with just experience alone.

There is also great benefit as the course is like a neutral/anonymous mentor that will not judge or have an ulterior motive.
The exercises in the course are excellent conversation starters you can carry over to a mentor.I greatly Appreciate the Structure of the processes spelled out.
the spread sheets are a nice bonus.

I can only say that as a technician, the years of experience, can be placed with a few months of training."
