""...I originally enrolled in Transformed's Diploma of Project Management on the basis of their flexibility. ..As I subsequently discovered, Transformed's approach extends even further to include 'one on one' coaching sessions... and adjusting the training to fit in with the client.."

Michael Irwin, Austrade
"I engaged Michael Young from Transformed to assess me for the Australian Institute of Project Management Certified Practicing Project Manager. I wanted to be certified as I wanted to verify that the skills and knowledge was in line with industry best-practice. At first it seemed a bit daunting, however, Michael made the process very easy, providing templates for references and self-assessment as well as providing a list of the project management documents I would need to provide as evidence. The assessment interview was very relaxed and more like a conversation than an assessment, which brought out the best experiences to evidence my capabilities. Because of Michael's current government security clearance, we were able to look at specific of particular projects, rather me than having to spend a heap of time sanitising documents. Since the assessment, I have been successful in gaining a promotion.."
