“The most valuable part of the training for me was the Project Management Training at MATC.  The five week course helped me get organized in my approach to managing a project. 

I now know how to properly start, track, report,

and finish projects on time and within budget.”

“I feel like the Project Management course sharpened my skills and gave me a new set of methodologies to use when running aproject from start to finish.”
