Exceeded my expectations – From this I can apply to my project work and plan and maintain any new tasks that come our way. I feel our trainers have a lot to live up to in delivery and expertise and felt Paul had provided this training informatively and adequately as required. I would recommend this course to anybody who has no or little experience with Jira.
