What people say about our training

Good course.

This class provided me the ability to better plan a project, including assigning resources and automating schedules.

I learned more useful information than I have ever gotten from any other similar course by any vendor. Even though I consider myself an advanced level user, I learned things that I can apply not only to Project, but also other MS Office tools. It moved well -- just the right pace.
Deane Williams

Webucator online training using WebEx works great! There seem to actually be fewer technical difficulties and disruptions overall than in traditional class trainings. Group discussions work well and the ability to share and display other trainee screens can help the whole class. Not having to travel to a training center was also a bonus!
