Very knowledgeable lecturers and very relevant information
I would highly recommend the IPMA Certified Project Management Diploma course. Very knowledgeable lecturers and I have gained a wealth of knowledge having completed the course. Very relevant information, giving me the skills I needed to move forward with my project management responsibilities. Thanks to everyone at the institute!
Quality lecturers and course material
Highly recommended. I upskilled by doing the project management diploma and it helped me secure a new job.
Well-organised course
I would highly recommend it to anyone considering working in this field. As a person with little to no experience in Project Management, I came into this course not knowing very much about how projects should be managed. However, I'm now leaving the course in a totally different position and have a wealth of knowledge that I will be applying in my job. The course is very well organised & the lecturers very knowledgeable.
