What our Students are Saying:

Project Management

event Planning

“As I got to know Lou and his method of teaching, I realized we were in the best class we could be in. Lou is easy to talk with, engages the students, and present the material in a well organized way… Lou’s goal is that everyone passes the first time they take the test (PMP). After having taken Lou’s course and doing my personal study, I was able to walk in with confidence, knowing I was going to pass that test the first time… Let me also say that because of his class not only did I pass the test, I am a much better Project Manager because of it. I have been working projects for years, but after his class I had a set of tools to do the job better.”

“When I decided to go into the event planning industry, one of my first steps was to enroll in Qualena Odom-Royes’ Event Planning Certificate course. Throughout the semester, Qualena provided the education, advice and encouragement I needed to get my wedding consulting business up and running… as well as the beginnings of my large network of industry contacts. I am now in my fifth year of business and have experienced year-over-year growth the entire time. I would recommend that anyone who is interested in the industry look into the class as a great starting point.”
