Walked in as an ordinary software engineer who is good at work yet no vision, no career ambition, knowing nothing about how agile and scrum differs.. Your institute designed me to somebody who I never thought I could be..firstly ACP then PMP.. gave the much needed education on Project Management Duminda.. became a role model to me guiding how to face problems in projects as well as life. Professional friends..gave exposure to several aspects and am so glad to have such quality friends in my life now, thanks again to the institute.. All I have to suggest is keep up the good work you have been doing.. In a nutshell what I have to say is the education and the facilities especially the motivation provided by Duminda is enough to pass the exam.. All what is needed more is students intention and commitment.. Once again thanks for the service..
