My name is a Patrick Chukwuemeka I am a Student of BOLC (Brentwood Open College, UK). However, I participated/went through a course called Project Management short course and I came out with an excellent result (Distinction as my grade). Moreover, What I liked and find more interesting about this course “Project Management” is that it enhances and build ideas on how to create and establish resources and activities aimed to achieve a certain output, considering constraints like time, quality and cost and which often introduces a change.



The course material was easy to understand and more helpful.
