    Adept at Primavera Risk Analysis Already

    "All [the material] was new content to me, and it was so well presented I feel like I am adept at Primavera Risk Analysis already. Having the two exercises at the end that required students to go through the full gambit of what the software's capabilities are was super helpful. The instructor, Ian, was great - he was very knowledgeable and eager to help. I could not have learned so much without him. "
