What our graduates say
The instructor, Rob, is very nice, experienced and is always there to support you that you are well prepared for the exam. The convenience and effectivity of this course is just unchallenged.
Recommended to everyone who seeks to pass the the CPIM exam!
The notes made during these sessions gave me leads to deepening the knowledge in particular areas. And when I had a need to clarify some topics, Rob has been exceptionally responsive and provided additional comments to my questions even at a much later time after the courses. I appreciate a lot Rob's willingness to support his students and lead them to a successful passing of the challenging CSCP exam.
Rob is very experienced and professional lector, very passionate about logistics and supply chains. His stories from real life helped me a lot to understand the themes and remember them after the lessons.
Due to the covid situation we had 10 lessons in Zoom platform on weekly basis from 9:00 to 12:30, it was very convenient. It was first time to have such a difficult topics in English for me, before the first lesson I was little bit scared about the internet connection and if I will keep the pace with the group and with Rob as a Dutch lector, but it wasn’t issue at all.
I believe all of this lead to my successful exam, although it took lot of selfstudy hours as well.
