"At the law school I attended less than half of the faculty had actual courtroom experience. They were all "academics" in the truest sense of the word. I always felt they lacked a certain credibility when they taught many of the lessons.
I strongly applaud UNCC's decision to use professionals with real-world experience to teach these PMP classes. It makes for an interesting two days in that the folks teaching the PMP classes are highly relatable and they carry a great deal of credibility. Well done UNC Charlotte!”
