Peter was clearly a very knowledgeable and engaging presenter. He made what could have been a very dry topic interesting and also followed the course material which will be useful for the future reference.

Again another excellent course, very informative has expanded my knowledge further. Should have considered doing this course in a months time when I had more experience with MS Project, would be a good tip to people when booking to have a break between courses.
