(5.00 out of 5) Barbara L [ 19 July, 2021 ]
Was very useful - helped me improve things I was already doing the "long way", taught me things I didn't previously know we could do, and helped me understand why things were being done the way they are being done already.
(5.00 out of 5) Madelaine L [ 24 June, 2021 ]
This course was informative and gave a really great look into master schedules and resource pool which will be helpful to my needs in my office. Our Instructor Alex was a great help and made this course flowing nicely and in an interactive way that didn't make the online aspect of this feel boring or slow.
(5.00 out of 5) Ritche H [ 24 May, 2021 ]
There were a lot of little items that will come in handy. Some of these are from the real world experience Alex leveraged to explain in clear, simple terms that were easy to follow and relate to.
