Making it Easier to Access Expert Training
Expert trainer Mike Clayton (author of a multitude of project management books and a couple of guest blog articles here at GirlsGuideToPM) is the trainer behind OnlinePMCourses. When I spoke to Mike about his course he told me that the idea was to take the workshops and training that he delivers in person and make them available to a wider audience.
I think this is a common trend in project management training: we want great quality tutors but we can’t individually afford to have someone like Mike come and give us one-on-one coaching. An online training system is the next best thing.
Personalised Feedback from Your Tutor
The unique thing about the training from OnlinePMCourses is that you can interact with your trainer. This isn’t a study-in-isolation type programme, although of course you can do that if it suits your learning style. Mike is committed to giving you the support you need to make the course a success, so he has included a comments section in every module of the course. Ask your question and he’ll get back to you.
I should point out that at the moment it is just Mike – there’s no team of 24/7 virtual assistants masquerading as people who know about project management so if he’s on holiday you won’t get an instant answer. When I tested this process out and asked a question I got an answer back in a couple of hours. I might have been lucky, but I think it shows that he is really invested in the students that are taking his courses.
