My project management experience has not involved much of the necessary math skills that are covered in the PMP. This class had a designated math text and class time dedicated to deepening my skill level so that I'm prepared for the exam and able to perform these skills in the project management profession. I appreciate Jim's collaborative nature as an instructor. He does seem to conduct this class as an evolving project itself implementing different processes and knowledge areas throughout the course. Each time he teaches he moves the project further along with his lessons learned from the previous class so that his future students benefit from this ever evolving approach. The macro view of project management along with the micro exploration of the knowledge areas and processes can only aid in my project efficiency.

I thoroughly enjoyed Jim Robison's Project Management course. Jim is an engaging teacher. He shared real life stories with us and encouraged an interactive discussion among classmates. He clearly has a passion for teaching, a commitment towards learning...and a lovely sense of humor.

This class was great for me as I had to work during the day. In addition, the lectures and the lab work were very interesting and informative. The structure of the class allowed excellent back-and-forth among the students. The professor was knowledgeable of all the sections of the course and had great examples to present.

I learned so much more than I thought I would in a single semester. Interacting with students who were older than your average college students made the class so much more valuable because of their maturity, real-life experience, and ability to stay on track.

 

It's an intense amount of material using a 500 page textbook, but the cohorts were in the marathon with me and I knew that we were reading the same amount of pages per week.

 

The professor had real world experience which cannot be matched no matter how well the textbook is written. Hearing about which aspects of project management might come up more often in the normal course of a project, and alternately, which terms may be more obscure made discussions pertinent and engaging.

 

I'm so glad to have had a framework for learning a project management software. It may not be the same one that they use at my next job, but the basics and general understanding is clear. The software does so many things - some that may not be utilized right away; it's nice to know that the program does more than is called for as opposed to less than needed.

 

Although I have a BA and have taken continuing classes on a variety of topics every other year or so since college, this class was more abundant than any other class I have ever taken.
