(5.00 out of 5) Simon O [ 06 August, 2018 ]
Alex was very friendly, knowledgeable and patient with us. A great course with appropriate content for a basic understanding of the key functions within Project.
(4.80 out of 5) Sarah B [ 06 August, 2018 ]
The instructor asked questions most students just did not engage in answering them. The pace was excellent the only session that seemed to drag was between morning tea and lunch on day 2.
(5.00 out of 5) David C [ 06 August, 2018 ]
The course was one of the very best I have been in - thanks to Alex! There was a large amount of content and I realize this is a reflection of the density and complexity of the topic. If I were to do a 'repeat' I would request one small thing, that a slightly increased morning and afternoon tea break be allowed (say 20 mins instead of 15mins). Regards, Dave

Very informative. Would have used any extra time to practice/ reinforce things learned during course time (re-doing exercises, or new exercises. Overall, very worthwhile.
