“The Custom Training in Project Management provided by Columbus State University’s Continuing & Professional Education Department was an excellent training resource for our team members who are involved in our strategic planning process. The instructor was very knowledgeable, a great communicator, engaged the participants and allowed for effective group interaction. CSU worked with us to develop a program agenda designed to meet our needs and having the courses taught onsite was a great benefit to us and the participants. I highly recommend this approach and to getting your personnel the additional training they may need.”
