I Was Reluctant To Go For Any Training Which Goes For 9+ Hours For 4 Days But I Guess I Made The Best Decision To Join StarAgile PMP Workshop

I was reluctant to go for any training which goes for 9+ hours for 4 days but I guess I made the best decision to join StarAgile PMP workshop.This is one of the most engaged training I've ever attended where I was able to grasp almost all what has been taught. No digital devices were used to train, pure concepts were literally taught using markers and sheets attached all-round the walls of the conference room.The activities which were performed after any concept were super fun. And top marks to StarAgile Instructor to explain all the concepts in absolute details.A recommend workshop for anyone who wants to train on PMP course.
