I am a coach for the PMP course by The Knowledge Academy. With this course the participants achieve the project management professional certification under the Project Management Institute authority.
Do you like this co-working space as a location for the trainings?
Today it seems to be a busy day and I like it because it makes the space very open and dynamic.

In fact it’s my first one and I really enjoy it. It’s a nice environment.

I love to teach. My life goal is to be a university teacher. Since I have a set of certificates by the Project Management Institute, I would like to teach people who don’t have much knowledge about this specific field.
