I love having mr. Kirby a a teacher. He knows how to keep the class going engaged. I was a pleasure working with him.
Debra did a great job as course leader. She explained all concepts well, used personal stories as examples, and always made sure everyone understood what she was saying by saying, "make sense?" and asking if any trainees had questions after each chapter was completed.
Very well presented and engaging
Debra was an excellent instructor, her knowledge and expertise were very helpful in addition to the course materials. She was fun and made it very interesting for us. The work that was taking place on the floor above our meeting room however, was a bit disruptive. On the last day we were forced to move to another meeting room.
Debra was an amazing instructor. She brought the course material to life, kept us all engaged and moved us along the material in a well-timed manner.
I enjoyed the class very much. The scenarios used throughout the course helped that we could relate to and follow along easily. We were able to apply the skills and tools towards projects of our own.

Excellent trainer. Engaging. A lot of class participation. Helpful discussions and concepts presented.
Instructor provide a very interesting delivery of the book materials, he followed the guidelines with real life experiences that allowed you to understand the concepts being delivered. Helped you to address key roles of the project manager.
His first hand knowledge of project management as well as the group exercises were very helpful.
The teacher was very, very good. He made the class enjoyable and extremely interactive.
The instructor was extremely knowledgeable on the subject matter and was so effective in using personal experiences and metaphors to reinforce our learning.
The instructor was knowledgeable and entertaining.
Kirby was a fantastic teacher.
Great course that was exactly as advertised! Provided with a good overview of proj management and useful tools! Instructor made the course interesting and was a very engaging facilitator
very good instructor, interactive training, cover all the expecting point.
Gene, is very knowledgeable of PM and his ability to teach on any level was very helpful.
Overall I found the 3 day seminar training gave me a better overall understanding of the project management basics for success. I enjoyed the group activities/discussion, as there was a lot of valuable feedback from many other seminar-goers that had different ideas based on their industry work.
Great information. Super instructor.
Gene was inventive and engaging as a presenter/trainer. The training material was a lot to digest in the three (3) day class but worth the time and dollars expended.
Dave was a great instructor. He was able to easily relate complex intricacies of project management to real-life examples, and he was able to answer any question I could throw at him.
Instructor was extremely knowledgeable about subject matter and provide clear and concise instruction.
Training was informative and well taught overall, My only comment would be to utilize the book more rather than the power point.
This training was well-paced, engaging, and did a good job of relating back to ways I can apply lessons learned in my actual work. At times, it became a bit predictable due to the rhythm of the material, but was otherwise excellent.
Awesome instructor and informative material
I really enjoyed this seminar. I was pleasantly surprised. The instructor was was engaging, animated, kept things exciting and interesting. The concepts and industry experienced he shared with us were very valuable to me. I would highly recommend this course to anyone starting out in project management or someone who has been involved in project management without any formal PM training. In my position, I have led projects and had to manage my own projects. The tools shared in this seminar along with in-class group discussions and exercises really help with understanding the application of concepts and tools.
I think the course would be far improved by either providing more detailed information on the case study or by using an example that all participants can relate to (planning a party, going on vacation) or easily research. "Making up" or "guessing" costs and task durations as we were instructed to do felt like a waste of time and took away from the learning experience.
Excellent deep dive into the methodology of PM supported by team and class exercises and resource binder.
For my purposes, I would say it's between neutral and good. I may have selected the wrong course.
I thought that the class was very informative
great material very well presented. Seminar was engaging throughout.
Wonderful job keeping everyone engaged. Very useful tips and resources given. Excellent
Susan was a wonderful instructor and gave us real life examples to make us understand how to become great at managing projects.
Michael was very knowledgeable and made the course fun and informative.
Michael was an excellent instructor. Not only was he a subject matter expert but an engaging instructor - he made what could be very dry material fun. Group interaction was very very good. I took away many tips and tricks that will greatly aid in future projects. My only negative is that the handouts should match the book and not have both.
The material was relevant and presented in an engaging manner. It would have been helpful to have more of a project simulation.
The instructor was very knowledgeable and provided a lot of insightful information to the course material.
The class was well structured and the modules were organized in a way that was easy to digest. The venue was easy to access. The room set up was not the most comfortable.
Well done, the course Leader for the seminar was very knowledgeable. I enjoyed the amount of manufacturing knowledge and his engineering background due to my work at a Dental Manufacturer having many of those components. He expressed different types of models that help bring cohesiveness.
The instructor was excellent. Was able to explain all of the content clearly and even provided real case scenarios as an example to PM.
Solid instruction - useful to see the tools that the instructor uses at his current job and what functions were chosen/useful for that specific tool. Class could have covered more things - pace seemed a little slow since one group would have to wait for the other to finish the group activity. Also would have appreciated learning and hearing about common pitfalls/mistakes that a project manager makes.
learned new tools and frameworks for project management
The instructor, course, and material were all excellent. I received training that provided a number of tools that I can actively use in my work and continue to use as I progress through my career.
This was an excellent refresher course for a variety of PM skills and tools.
One single notebook with all materials together should be excellent instead of many extra papers delivered by the instructor.
Great instructor, very to the point, funny, and made the class go by at a pace that was slow enough to comprehend things, but not painstaking.
This course was very helpful and I cannot commend the instructor enough. He was very engaging and kept the class interested for all three days.
Excellent training seminar
I learned a lot of methods to run meetings effectively as well as how to keep a project on track.
Very informative, a lot of good material that can be applied
Kirby was an truly amazing instructor. He was able to convey the importance of each topic while allowing us to work through actual scenarios that we encounter in our everyday work environments. I can say I walked away from this training with an enhanced knowledge base of project management.
very good course, most of the content is applicable for me
Kirby is a great instru. He used simple examples to explain the concepts. He has a lot of energy and was able to keep the group engaged. The training content and supporting material is good.
The instructor Kirby made the subject relatable and even engaging. It wasn't a lecture but more of an interactive exercise to ensure that the subject matter stuck with us. I really appreciate Kirby's real life experiences to help me apply these to future situations.
I have attended training in Alexandria, VA and found the experience superior and far more professional.
The instructor moved at a very good pace and did a good job at reviewing the materials that was provided to us.
The instructor was very engaging with real-life experiences and examples.
Very good groupal activities
Really enjoyed the course. The group exercises made it easier to remember all of the tools/concepts discussed in class.
Lisa Violsa P.
great class...very worth while...good content
instructor very knowledgeable and lots of exercises allowing groups to get hands on training as to how these tools should be applied
The instructor was very informative
This was my first time attending an online course and it was a great experience.
Instructor, class work and location were great but the room was a little small, we would have benefitted from more space.
It's not easy to cram the learnings of Project Management into three days but I felt like I learned a great deal in such a short amount of time.
Basic but helpful for my role. The instructor was very knowledgeable
Allison actually applies the concepts taught in class and has many really world examples to share that reinforce there use. The group exercise style is very effective giving students the opportunity to work together much like a project team would during a project.
Class hit everyone of my expectations.
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.
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 content of this course, although aimed at project management is very supported of understanding of managing a department / people.
Lisa was excellent and made the class very real world.
Course was very good and very informative
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
