I found this course to be useful and engaging, with great content. It gives a broad understanding of project management as a whole, and I’m glad I have chosen to complete this course before I complete the Prince 2 Practioner this summer. Even with some additional shadowing of my organisations EPMO structure with a good level of depth to each session, this course has helped add to that knowledge, adding another layer of context to my learning. I did however, find the way in which the individual modules had to be reviewed and approved before you could move onto the next one frustrating. Seeing that each module and video is so short (4-7 mins with a couple of paragraphs to write), this course has taken me about 2.5 weeks to complete when in reality, it could be done within a couple of days, or even 1 full day. I would suggest that perhaps the structure is amended so that you complete 3 modules and then they are reviewed, or the entire course is completed and then reviewed with a longer turn around time on it, perhaps 1 week or something along those lines to avoid unnecessary delays. All in all a good taster course to project management with some useful templates.
