Reviews

  • Review:
    I decided to register for the Project Management Professional – Review (PMP) course at leoron training institute after much research and review of other such types of training provided by various groups in the Reagan. I felt, even before attending the course, that I had made the right decision. That feeling was fully justified after completing the 5-days course taught by Henrique Moura. I have attended a number of seminars, conferences and training courses in the last few years and none have compared to the breadth and quality of the information provided by the trainer. Though the class binder was so large consist of PMBoK and PMP exam prep book we have covered every bit of the information in those books. I don’t think I’ve ever felt so “accomplished” upon leaving an educational event before. Henrique was a phenomenal teacher and I think at one point I even asked him if I could borrow his brain to do a quick download. His teaching style was engaging and superbly informative as the entire class was able to integrate the course materials into their own day to day operations, Leoron training institute team Eva Gorgieska, Nikolina Kostovska, Tatjana Koljovchevska were remarkably supportive and kind they did provide us with everything we need during the duration of the course their support is highly appreciated , I would recommend this course to all project managers that didn’t get it yet it’s really helpful and outstanding course.
