Student Testimonial

“[PM102] course was a great course with a lot of good reference materials. And I really liked the hands-on format. The instructor definitely knew his stuff and provided many relevant examples.

BICSI’s [PM102] course is showing me how to efficiently manage projects and has given me tools to ensure my projects are on time and within budget. Plus I’m learning how to communicate effectively. This is a great class to help prepare me to take the RTPM exam.”
