What Our Participants Are Saying
Helene_Bryant
Helene Bryant

"My favorite takeaways from this program were the advice that a project is not a task, it is a series of tasks; you must learn from other learning professionals; and how to properly structure a project. This program helps you step back and reflect on how you work."

JG
Jennifer Quan

"The entire program was amazing, but I appreciated the fact that we were able to choose a project of our own and create a project plan around it. This program gave quick, but thorough, instruction on project management for trainers—enough information to get individuals started on the right path of project management, but not enough to overwhelm."

Shauna_Herman

"I enjoyed this program because I work in a training role and wanted a project management program that aligned with the needs of training development. The tools and program materials are excellent resources. The facilitator was very engaging and gave us some real nuggets of wisdom to apply on the job."
