Reviews

Microsoft Project 2013 Introduction Training Course Reviews:

What our clients are saying:

"Very informative. Definitely motivates me to allow more time than usual to prepare my day, break down my work and scrutinise my prioritisation processes. Highly beneficial."

"I’m very impressed by PD Training … they specifically selected one of their specialist facilitators to run the session which then made it possible for us to discuss our requirements further and tailor the course we had selected to suit our particular needs."


"The student manual was not used at all in the course but was mentioned as a valuable post course resource. The way we built up a Project as a means of exploring aspects of the programme was great and was reinforced with further examples so we practiced using the programme more."

In-House Training We’ll focus on what matters most to you and tailor to your context


Live Online or Hybrid Class Tailored to Your Needs

When you want a tailored learning experience targeting exactly what you want without bringing everyone physically together, the best choice is a Live Online Class run by PDT.

We tailor the content and activities to be specific to your current needs and the needs of the people and run the course in our usual activity-based workshop style training, however, the participants can all be offsite, or some can be in the room with others offsite.

Unless you have a preferred tools we use 'Zoom for Education' that includes enhanced collaboration features such as One-click content sharing, real-time co-annotation (people can work together in activity files), and digital whiteboarding, we also include things like live polls and group chats so you virtually have the same collaborative learning experience of attending a course in a room with other people.

live online & hybrid

We have delivered these 100's (if not 1000's) of times, and get great outcomes. We achieve great outcomes because we keep our learner centric approach - just because it’s delivered through a screen to some or all participants doesn’t mean it needs to be less tailored or less personalised.

You still have an expert trainer who talks to you prior to the session and tailors the delivery to use your terminology, ensure activities are relevant and directly applicable and ensures an engaging learning experience that provide people with skills and techniques they can apply the very next day.

A hybrid class is with some people dialling in, and some people physically together in the same room.
