Colin Ó Scanaill, Apple:

“Very relevant to my day job, gave me a holistic perspective on my projects which was very motivating. Experience and calibre of lecturers second to none. Without this course I do not think I could have achieved my PMP - so many thanks.”



Norma Beechinor, Stryker Instruments:

“The Diploma in Project Management was definitely the most practical and beneficial course that I have attended to date. I learned about all the project management tools and their benefits such as Work Breakdown Structures and Risk assessments and I also learned a lot on managing Project Human Resources. The practical PM tools we learned continue to help me during my daily roles and responsibilities within Stryker Corporation.”



Kevin Cunningham, Pfizer:

“I found the Diploma course to be a very rewarding experience. This course was fun, engaging, and very participative - the range of experience and knowledge available is impressive. What you learn and experience will refocus your personal career goals as well as give you a renewed sense of confidence in your abilities, which was the highlight for me.”



Aoife Dillon, Coillte:

“I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the PM Diploma. The small class size and presenters’ vast knowledge both contributed to the fact that the decision to do this Diploma has been the most rewarding decision I have made in years, in terms of my professional development.”
