5.0 stars Christian Greer's talent is unlimited. He is a fantastic PM instructor and what he brings to the table is considerable. I not only enjoyed his manner and the way he delivered the content, but I think the way he challenges the class to come up with solutions made this class a worth every cent. He gives his students real life examples. He provides a lot of sources. He makes a point to share ideas that are geared to each student. He is a great teacher. Christian would make anything he would teach interesting.
4.9 stars I thought that this Project Management Training course was "awesome". The instructor used real life experience, along with The Fast Forward MBA in Project Management book/manual. I found the instructor to be fair minded, & experienced, in the project management training environment. I would recommend this class to my fellow co-workers, senior management and family. Thanks Training Connection.
4.8 stars This course provided me with some real valuable tools and knowledge that I can see myself applying to my professional career. Having the one-on-one experience allowed me and Christian to focus on things that I personally need to work on and get better at. I would definitely recommend this to other people in my position.
