The trainer was excellent. I feel much better about learning PMI-ACP, and my chances of passing the exam the first time.

Today's session was really good. I know it was off-script, but being able to connect the concepts in one lesson (I call this a vertical slice) was invaluable. This one lesson strengthened my core understanding and will make the rest of the material so much easier to learn and make the test easier to do for sure. I hope others felt the same way too. Nicely done.

At first I was adamant in taking the virtual class as my intent was to attend physical classroom. However, I found the virtual class effective and efficient. Rich did a great job of keeping the class on track, answering our questions, and giving us great insights, tips and techniques how to tackle the exam. Great job!

Initially I was a little hesitant on taking the ACP course online. My preference has always been to take a class in person but I was very impressed with the way the class was conducted and the interaction between the instructor and class participants were taking place. The ACP online class exceeded my expectations and I gained a lot of useful information that I hope to put to use in real projects. I feel very prepared for the ACP exam now and have more confidence with my understanding of Agile practices and methods gained from the training.

For someone whose been in the IT field for 30 years, this class taught me the current terminology that is being used in the work place surrounding project management framework. I found the logic behind communication & collaboration is still the same, yet the vocabulary must be used and accepted.
