Online Training at its best

I have been teaching online courses for universities since 2001 and greatly enjoy giving back my knowledge to those who seek it. I have my Masters in IT and my Bachelors in Business, my PMP certification, and have done consulting work for small to large firms for over 20 years. I specialize in Project Management, Business Analysis, Internet Marketing, and Quality Management. I hope you enjoy my courses on Udemy! :)
