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.
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.
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.
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 was very engaging with real-life experiences and examples.
Very good groupal activities
The instructor moved at a very good pace and did a good job at reviewing the materials that was provided to us.
Really enjoyed the course. The group exercises made it easier to remember all of the tools/concepts discussed in class.

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.
Class hit everyone of my expectations.
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.
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.
Very good training. Michael projects the content in a way to keep you involved and interested.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
my group would get lost some in the group activitys
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.
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.
Wonderful, informative, knowledgeable instructor. It was a little irritating that the teachers materials, our handouts and the presentation don't match.
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.
