The support and guidance provided was excellent
I undertook a course with the Institute in April 2021 and the support and guidance provided were excellent. The course content and delivery far surpassed my expectations and I would recommend the Institute to anyone wishing to commence or continue their Project Management education.
Great team and support
Great team and support from the staff. The teacher on the course was very knowledgeable. I enjoyed taking my certification here.
Thank you for a great learning experience
Wonderful experience on the Diploma in Project Management with the Institute of Project Management.
Excellent course content, presenter and preparation for exam
We had a small class from different backgrounds; HR, IT, Sales, Product Owner. I highly recommend them and they offer considerable value add. Had a query and the head of course (was not expecting it) took a short phone call out of hours so that will tell you the customer mantra. Go for it!
I'd highly recommend the Institute of Project Management
I've been working in Tech for 8 years now and the Agile Project Management class turned into a huge unlock for me, it was the way our dev teams have been doing business and the environment we work in the entire time. I look forward to getting my next PM credential from you.
