Michael was very engaging and it was clear he is an expert in this field. He broke the various topics discussed, into real life, relatable situations. It is evident that Michael enjoys teaching and takes pride in everything he taught us through this course.
Very good training. Michael projects the content in a way to keep you involved and interested.
The instructor, Allison was great. The training was setup from day 1 to delivery the attendees the best group instruction as possible. One of the best trainings I have attended in a while.
The content of this course, although aimed at project management is very supported of understanding of managing a department / people.
Course was very good and very informative
Lisa was excellent and made the class very real world.
I thought it was good coverage of the basics. Th interactivity of the course made it engaging and digestible.
Very helpful breakdown of PM workflow, definitions and strategies to facilitate processes throughout project lifecycle
The material was relevant and relatable on many different levels. I gained a very focused approach toward project managing and will use many of these tools in the future.
Pat has superb knowledge of the subject and her real life examples bring clarity to the specific topics. Also I appreciate her guidance when working the team exercises as it allowed us to do the work but have a hand of help if we got stuck.
Excellent in class work to give hands on experience.
Patricia was very engaging
It was a great training
This was held in a beautiful facility
Overall the course was excellent. I appreciate the instructor's experience and ability to elaborate on topics that surfaced in her professional career. Her experience brings added value to the course.
Really great experience!
Great course that included activities to reinforce learning. Outstanding instructor!
The training was great for me because I feel confident now that I can utilize some of the tools I have acquired through the course.
Gene was very knowledgeable and informative in regards to the topics covered by the course. He provided real life examples for clearer descriptions on almost all concepts. He challenged us all to provide specific examples of how we intend on implementing what we learned into our daily jobs.
I think that the course should leave more room for the instructor to use "real-life" examples and ask for examples the examples the students. I think it would alow people to learn better if the material was applied to current situations that students are facing in the workplace. The course sturcutre does not currently allow the instructor to do this.
Great course, super helpful
Overall this was an informative course.
Having Gene with his wealth of PM knowledge and exprience mad the course even more valuable.
Very professional, provide lots of information and very affectived team work assignments.
The course overall was absolutely amazing! I thoroughly enjoyed myself because of how much I learned. The facility was excellent and the content was exactly what I needed. I got more out of the course than I expected. I would recommend this course for anyone that would like be more efficient at what they do. Employing the information here will immediately make you more valuable in any operation that you are apart of.
I have coordinated many projects over my 30+ years career but wanted to have the project management structure and appropriate terms and language. The tools I gained from this course will be very beneficial for improving my value and contributions moving forward.
Overall, the course was good. I wish there was an opportunity to share one of my real projects with the instructor and learn of his/her approach to the management of the project.
She was the best trainer I have had in my years and the materials and structure of this class was one of the best of tall the AMA classes I have taken.
The class was very interactive with lots of exercise.
The faculty member was knowledgeable, simplified complex issues, and was entertaining.
The examples were applicable to the real world.
Pat (our instructor) is an excellent SME and she is an expert on how to keep the class engaged and on track through the course. This is a great class for someone looking for hands-on understanding. Highly recommendable.
The instructor was really knowledgeable and personable. We had a lot of hands on training which helped me learn and apply the tools we were learning.
Awesome course. Not one moment was irrelevant or a waste of time. All of the activities correlated to the overall content.
The training was great. I don't know how relevant some of the information is to my workplace, but I brought some valuable information back with me.
This course was very interactive and prompted a lot of discussions and conversations. The activities and exercises were extremely helpful, essential and fun.
I really liked the pre-class assessment, and then testing afterwards...gave me an idea of where I really stood on the topic and how much I learned in the class.
Excellent course by Brandon - this was a well presented seminar and workshop that kept everyone engaged. I would definitely recommend this course any professional looking to sharpen their project management skills.
I learned alot in this class and he kept the class interesting.
Great pace and lots of good information
Activities kept us engaged. I would recommend this course to others.
Lynn and Matt were awesome! Lynn really knew how to keep everyone engaged.
Materials were excellent.Interaction with course leader effectiveOnly comment relates to lack of snacks/food given the course fees.
It was a pleasure to be in Deborah seminar. I learned a lot on how to manage a project.
Good experience with the class leader and people from different business.
Excellent teacher! Extremely knowledgeable, well rounded in all items, good sharing of personal experience.Course content was above expectations. Included many items I hadn't previously considered.
Brandon is awesome ! very informative and insightful !
Really good seminar, I am already enjoy to learn new methodology to drive a project
The faculty was great as was the producer.
This was great, I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was very engaging and interesting. The presenter was excellent, I would love to be in another seminar with her again. I learned a lot from her.
I learned so much and thought the way the class was organized perfectly.
Great introduction to a project management. I learned a lot.
my group would get lost some in the group activitys
The Project Management class exceeded my expectations! It was interactive, engaging, and most importantly, I walked away with new a skill-set that can be applied to my work, immediately. I'd recommend this class to anyone new to project management or if you are seeking the tools and processes to sharpen your current project management skills.
Great pace & examples of the material. Made the process easier to digest.
The course was great for where I currently am professionally. I am excited to bring these tools back to work and implement them.
This course exceeded my expectations. Will be very applicable to my current job.
The course was overall very helpful in generating situations that could be applied to my work environment. It help me grasp the framework for project management and provided techniques that I can apply to my daily tasks.
Great coarse that provided a comprehensive overview for those not formally trained or involved on a regular basis with Project Management
Instructor Robert is excellent. Material good. Seems like a lot to go over in a short amount of time. I think an extra 20-30 minutes each day would help.
Instructor was very positive and encouraging. Worked on getting teams together to collaborate
David was very knowledgeable and gave good examples in order to understand and have a clear picture of the topics reviewed throughout the course of the seminar.
Great course and I learned a lot. Wish I took this before I started my first Charter!
I came to this course to learn all I could about project management as I am usually a stakeholder. There was so much I learned and also it brought to light how much I have not seen in my organization prior to when I get involved. It will be nice to demonstrate what I've learned and be able to offer tips to those that I work with.
Kirby champion the challenge of teaching the course in limited time. He was excellent and covers everything in very interacting approach after first teacher got sick.
The only reason I'm rating this a 4 instead of a 5 were due to events outside of anyone's control. The original instructor had to leave due to some type of sickness half way through the first day. For a while we did not know what was going on but staff members came in later to let us know that another instructor had been found and the class would continue as scheduled.
Covered a broad range of PM topics without going very in depth into anything.
Our second teacher, Mr. Heynze was fantastic.
Kirby made the course applicable and engaging. Sitting for that long is difficult - he was able to read the room and use practical examples to keep us interested.
Came through even though a setback from first day when class instructor got sick and AMA had to replace that instructor.
Joe was fantastic. He made the class relatable and informative, while not being dry or boring.
Wonderful, informative, knowledgeable instructor. It was a little irritating that the teachers materials, our handouts and the presentation don't match.
The AMA facilities were in good shape, it was very nice that coffee was offered thank you. The teacher had all the course materials prepared. The instructor was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful.
I had a great class and a great instructor who went over the necessary information in an easy to understand manner, made the class flow continuously thru out each day and allowed me to learn. The only negative was the course materials did not match the instructors teaching materials. She was able to easily improvise but that is not an effective tool.
My only complaint was that there was a clear disconnect between the book and the slides.
Connection kept dropping for multiple people in the course, so parts of the material were missed while the system reconnected. This sometimes took up to 10 mins. Unfortunately the recording is not provided after the course, so there is no way to pick up missed information. Huge disappointment!
Pat is incredibly knowledgeable, personable, and engaging. The class material was well organized, the exercises helpful, and the objectives clear.
Pat engaged our small group very effectively. I enjoyed and derived much from the exercises.
The instructor was very knowledgeable of the subject and kept everyoneâ€™s attention throughout.
Great material and wonderful facilitation by Patricia
The instructor was very knowledgeable. The materials need work - not always easy to follow and out of sequence.
Instructor was very knowledgeable in the subject matter
Susan was an excellent facilitator. Her facilitation skills were great, but her real-life experience was what really made the class so excellent.
I am very new to project management and this course was perfect. Through an engaging instructor and team course work, I learned the basics of project management. I would recommend it to all new project managers or those who are considering project management as a career.
The faculty seemed highly knowledgeable and was able to translate the knowledge into a good learning experience for the student.
The trainer was incredibly knowledgeable on the subject. She presented the complex material in a way that was clear and easily digestible.
Appreciate Stephany always asking if the class understood concepts throughout the 4 day course and taking the time to go back and further explain concepts as necessary.
A great introductory course to the basics of project management, and how to achieve success in various aspects of the most challenging parts of the job.
The study cases provided a good example and foundation to the exercises necessary to do this work.
I learned a lot in such a short period of time and I will be bringing a lot back to my work place
This was the best class I have ever attu
This course was extremely helpful. I found the information very detailed and easy to understand. The instructor was very knowledgeable of the course material, engaging and personable.
great instructor, timely material
Good overview of project management tools and how to use them.Only downside materials provided were hardcopy
Great class. Content and discussions were appropriate for both complete novices and those with project management experience.
The case study was well constructed to illuminate project management concepts. The simulation was very effective in setting the tone for the importance of communication methods in project management.
This was a very useful class that helped me gain a much clearer understanding of how project management works.
The trainer was experienced and knowledgeable but the course material and pace of the course was very basic and fairly slow. While I did not learn too many new skills, the course reiterated things that wI was already aware of in terms of project management. If the pace were more efficient, we likely could have gotten through the material more in 2 days. I would only recommend this course to people just entering the field of project management. For those who have been in the workforce for any significant amount of time, I'd recommend a higher level course or something that is more specific to the skillset you need. Overall this was not
Excellent course and the teacher had a very good grasp of all concepts. I was hoping to have more modern examples from other students though. Maybe more class discussion?
The course contained a lot of useful information. Having said that, the organization of the workbook in comparison to the slides was very difficult to maneuver, flipping back and forth between the text section and the slides section. I essentially gave up on the slides section although I know that I missed some important notes. Gene had a great wealth of knowledge and his examples proved to be beneficial in explaining the content in the workbook. Overall the course achieved the basic level of knowledge that I was seeking.
Pretty good overall. A little rushed toward the end, but good content.
The hands-on practice was very beneficial. David, the instructor, was very knowledgeable with great "real-life" experience examples to help understand everyday practice of methods learned.
David was very knowledgeable about the subject. His passion showed and he was able to break down and relate the information to everyday work.
The instructor was engaging and had a lot of relevant experience for the course helping to explain the material being taught.
The instructor was extremely knowledgeable and personable. The data provided will be invaluable in assisting me with my position. Thank you!
Instructor was the best AMA course instructor I have had. He was extremely knowledgeable, an excellent educator, and really knew how to get the class involved and stay engaged. Would absolutely recommend any course with David again!
This course has given me the knowledge to ask the right questions and improve the skills needed to manage projects better.
The material was useful for pre/post review and comprehension, but the real value was in the real world applicable examples and exercises the instructor (Kirby) used. He was an extremely talented teacher and I learned a great deal of useful tactics for planning and delivering on projects.
The training was good, and Kirby's stories kept me interested. Sometimes the stories seemed to get a bit offtrack on what I was really looking to learn about.
The course instructor did an excellent job keeping participants engaged and providing stories that helped apply the theories to our everyday work situation.
Excellent seminar as an entry-level course.
Kirby exhibited all the traits of a great teacher. He was thoroughly versed on the topics, engaged with each attendant and was capable of breaking down each idea into understandable terms. His daily agenda kept the class focused and enjoyable. Well worth the time and monetary investment for new and experienced project leaders.
Allison is very knowledgeable in this subject & she made the class fun!
Very energetic course. Allison had very good delivery of material and presented very well.
Did a great job in keeping everyone involved in the class.
The instructor was awesome and provided real life examples.
Tech Support and Facilitator were great
I loved the interactive training, not just three hours of continuous talking. Presenter was very knowledgeable, professional and encouraging.
The instructor was very knowledgeable & able to answer all questions. Group participation in the breakouts could have been better but that could be based on people in the group. Slide content didn't always match to the provided lesson handouts, for instance closing the project. Providing better instruction for homework would be helpful, it was sometimes unclear what to do.
I'm new to the topic, I found the seminar very informative
This really was an excellent training, but with the title of "Basics for Success," I had assumed it would be much more basic. Having project management experience would have been a huge benefit to anyone wanting to take this training. I got lost fairly frequently (at no fault of the instructor!) because a lot of what was discussed I didn't have any real life experience to draw from since I've never been a project manager.
Kirby is an excellent instructor. He provides relevant real world examples and clearly explains the course concepts in an interactive manner.
Good introduction to Project Management.
Great course to learn the basics with a great instructor to explain.
Very knowledgeable and skilled facilitator.
Already certified PM were attended the training. Differences in the level of experience.
