Course Reviews

Travis Wolfe

It was during my transition from an I.T infrastructure professional to a project manager that I decided to try out Kuebiko’s project management course. The trainer did a great job in teaching us the core concepts and what it takes to thrive as a project manager. One of the best 40 hours I have invested in.
